What they are really well-known for, is their home-made kaya (coconut jam), sandwiched between two slices of benggali toast.

The toast usually comes with a balanced spread of butter mix with kaya, or more well known as the "roti kahwin". It is best savored by dipping into a cup of hot coffee or half-boiled eggs.

Eggs on Toast

There is also another way to enjoy this well known Hainanese coffee and toast combo, the eggs on toast set along with a cup of Iced coffee (if you prefer the iced version).

If you ended up liking their coconut jam (kaya) just like we did, they do sell them in cans that you can bring home.

This place is better suited for afternoon tea-time fix as they only starts serving from the noon (12:30pm onwards)
