Lim Kee Cafe @ Tian Jing Hotel

Chinatown’s latest heritage hotel is a charmer, intent on blending nostalgic nuances with contemporary comfort, bridging the aesthetic gap between generations past and present. 

But while Tian Jing Hotel's 15 rooms might not be ready to receive callers, the lodging's Lim Kee Cafe is - this winsome space is a balm for the harried soul, welcoming patrons with a benediction for their protection inscribed in Chinese calligraphy. 

Desserts are the draw: Ice cream flavours skate from pandan to teh tarik, mascarpone to soursop (RM6 per scoop, RM10 for two), smooth and satisfyingly indulgent. The raspberry tiramisu cake is pretty tasty too. Warm meals are unavailable for now.

  1. With a name like that, I was expecting some old school coffee shop. Lovely place. Love how nicely they've restored the old shop buildings.

  2. There's a charm about this place that will certainly draw the tourists in though the facade looks rather modern (except for the shutters). Hey, when the tourists stay here, they can try our Oloiya next door too! ;)

  3. Wow! I love their style to refurbish old shops back to its glory days. I would love my wife to wear Qipao dress and sip coffee with me like the Old Shanghai days.
