Popular with tourists and locals alike, Discovery Cafe's brightly painted facade is hard to miss. Besides free internet access, cable TV, a pool table, dart and carom games, it also stocks many travel guides. The Day-Glo decor spans three floors of a renovated pre-war shop house, spilling into an adjoining open-air courtyard decked with barbecue benches and palm trees. A balcony garden beckons from the rooftop with splendid views of the Malacca River and St. Francis Church . The menu is an all-embracing concoction of local, western and Portuguese-influenced dishes. Soft drinks, hot and cold beverages and alcoholic choices are available.
Warm service. Owner goes out of his way to ensure guests have an enjoyable time. At a crossroads in town good for viewing Malacca and mingling with those about town. The owner even held onto my glasses for a month after I left them there on my first trip through.
I have become a "regular" at the Discovery as I have visited Malacca 4 times in the last year. Mr Teng, the owner, is one of the friendliest mine host I have met in world travel but he is not intrusive. Locals lend a hand if the staff are busy so there is no waiting and some, particular a lady called Choo, speak perfect English and are always ready to help you find your way around Malacca. Incidentally, if you do go to Malacca dont miss Cheng Hoon Teng Temple, the oldest in Malayasia.
Went to Malacca with 5 other friends. Stumbled upon this cafe by chance. Chatted with Uncle Steven there. Very friendly/helpful guy, even brought us up to the roof for photo taking. Really glad to have met him during our trip. Definitely would re-visit Discovery Cafe if I go back to Malacca. A really nice cafe. Hope that Uncle Steven could see this review. Would get Kenny to write something too. By the way, I'm Terry.

The Tranquerah Mosque reflects both Chinese and Indian influences in its architectural design. This is especially evident in the tall,
pagoda shaped minarets and the three tiered roofs. Other mosques in Malacca with similar architectural designs include the Jamek ...
