Early Breakfasts in Johor Bahru (near JB CIQ) (Old Post Needs Updating)

I have often been asked to suggest where to have a good early breakfast in JB, especially by my Singapore friends. My friends were looking for a convenient place for a tasty light meal and coffee or tea before hitting the North-South Highway to go further up north, e.g. to Malacca or Kuala Lumpur, KL.

There are many breakfast options - this list keeps to those stalls and shops that are opened early for business by 7:00am and are just a short and uncomplicated diversion from the JB CIQ. Of course, this list is a living document and more stalls/ shops will be added as I discover more good early breakfast places. As always, I appreciate your suggestions :))

  1. Hi thank you so much for all the wonderful informations. I would like introduce you a new eating place "Soon Cafe" at Taman Sentosa and their new branch at Taman Permas Jaya.

  2. Had lunch at Soon Cafe at Permas Jaya.
    Thought it interesting to have SG food in JB. Had chicken rice, which wasn't memorable. Haven't been back since.


I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
