Ordinary food. Poor service. Like most cafe In The area, the focus on decor but not taste. I recommend to go to the shop opposite. Looks like better options

Location is quite central so they get a constant flow of tourists therefore no dearth of business and that could be a reason that they are a bit higher priced than the competition.

The restaurant is very clean. Food is not terrible but not great either. It is an OK place for a drink and people watching, not to have a culinary experience. Plenty of vegetarian options though the pizza was a bit chewy, maybe the dough was...slightly undercooked or they used sa special type of flour.More

Effectively a standard pub-restaurant but is it definitely worth a stop if your hungry. The prices are okay, if not marginally inflated for the travelling tourist. I imagine it's probably busier and more lively outside of the 'Corona Season' but still nice nonetheless. I'd recommend...the Sambal Chicken Pizza - though I'd have wanted more spice in it.More

Geographer Melaka probably needs to update their menu and its presentation, it looks a bit grimy and tattered, but the service on 26/7 Sunday is excellent. Attentive and alert, he made the difference.

After the long walk along Jonker Walk, it is a good time to have a rest and have a beer at the Geographer Cafe. It is located close to the end of Jonker Walk. Our last vist here was 13 year ago. A laid-back bar...feel with a young, friendly staff, tables along the open front and side make it the perfect spot to watch the world go by whilst enjoying a drink. Varied menu with good range of snacks and meals. Not the cheapest, but a great ambience - we loved it.More

Nice place for people watching but a bit over priced in my opinion. Good location and good service on the other hand

A lovely little cafe with a good selection of alcoholic and soft drinks. I tried the sour plum which was excellent and very refreshing after walking around malala. Had some of their spring rolls which where excellent and veggie satay which was also very good....Good service and good prices.More
