The Baba House hotel is actually an old Peranakan house that has been refurbished.
We explored the courtyards, gardens, staircases and stairwells during our 1-day stay. The room is way below average, but the surroundings and the cafe, I like.
In the foreground is the beverage table. See the coffee and tea pots placed neatly side by side? The coffee cups and saucers are also neatly stacked at the side. Plus the blue and white checkered table cloth. Quite quaint.
You want coffee or tea, get it yourself. It is free flow. Drink all you want.
The guy behind the counter should be the chef. Anyway, he took our breakfast orders. He has a nice friendly smile, just a bit shy and quiet. As i order my food, I started looked at the little items displayed on the rack at the back. Nothing valuable and in fact the items seem quite trivial. All I can think of is, random but neat.
Breakfast is simple but quite good. I like the kaya toast and the coffee. We were even enquiring about the source of the coffee powder so that we may buy a bit for home. Alas, it came straight from the factory.
