Located inside the grand sea facing clubhouse, Insomnia
One entrance to Insomnia
Another entrance faces the broad, windy pedestrian walkway.
There is a wall of books and magazines encouraging customers to stay and relax.
I love these heavy armchairs which we can sink into and curl up with a good book and nice coffee. Located by the windows, this is also ideal for enjoying intimate conversations and a cuppa with views of silently passing ships in the Straits of Johor.
The service counter, cake display and bright open kitchen.

Café Mocha RM9 Cappuccino RM8
Cestino's famous Signature Tiramisu. Chilled, just nice sweetness, soft, not too creamy and with a delightful kick from the liquor inside. Perfect companion for a nice bitter-sweet robust coffee.
Remember to pick up a bag of Cestino's hot selling crunchy biscotti or coffee bread.
