[JB EATS] Cafes Around Taman Ungku Tun Aminah

*Updated 2019*
Johor Bahru cafes are expanding fast and you get to see new cafes opening almost every other month. Apart from the cafes near the JB Checkpoint , Mount Austin and Taman Molek, it’s time to venture to Taman Ungku Tun Aminah. This area is located quite a distance from JB checkpoint but nearer to Sutera area. If you are taking Grab/ Uber from JB checkpoint, the fee is approximately RM25~RM35 (one way) depending on traffic, timing and demand on that point of time.

Here are the cafes that are located around Taman Ungku Tun Aminah:
1. The Dose Coffee (CLOSED)

The Dose Coffee located at level 2 of the shop house that serves coffee, brunch and also attractive desserts. I was interested with their durian waffles and hence visited the place. It was pretty rich and good. If you are dropping by, do order their fruits with waffles.

2. Flamingo By Gran Fiesta
The café is nicely decorated with flamingo wallpapers at a corner. The interior café has nice pastel colours which suits for photography. The menu comprises coffee, brunch, pasta and desserts. We ordered the pasta and chicken waffles to try. It was surprisingly not bad in terms of the taste and value. We also ordered popcorn coffee latte which sounds interesting.

Car Born Café was previously located at Sutera area and moved to this new vicinity area.The café is well-known with its cute and gimmicky instagram-worthy desserts and drinks online. However, I personally feel that the price is a bit steep as compared with other cafes and the taste is not up to my liking. This applies to several of my friends who visited the place before. If you are looking for aesthetic desserts for social posting, you can give this place a try.

Address: 44-46 Jalan Pendekar 13,
Taman Ungku Tun Aminah
81300 Skudai, Johor Bahru
Opening Hours:
Tuesday – Sunday 12:00PM – 12:00AM
(Closed on Mondays)

5. Kafuka Café & Music Studio
The café cum music studio is located at level 2 of the shop houses. The café is right next to the music studio that offers savoury and coffee. You can just chill and relax at the café ordering their coffee latte and dishes to spend with friends and family. The interesting part is that the café also uses musical instruments to decorate the café too.

Address: 16A, Jalan Bendahara 12,
