This is one of the rare finds I chanced upon in the town of Johor Bahru along the tranquil and old charm street of Tan Siok Nee. Here you will find crowd at a 30years old corner coffee shop at 8 Jalan Trus and in the opposite direction, a half century old bakery shop with a big brick oven smack in the centre of the shop at 13 Jalan Tan Siok Nee.
The locals of the older generation loved to come here for their daily fix and coffee talks of daily grind of life and tete-a-tete in an old coffee shop situated at the corner of Jalan Trus and Jalan Tan Siok Nee, which is just a road just after OCBC Bank in town. The draw is the constantly good coffee prepared by the son, a second generation owner who has now taken over the business. Many would have been here for the past 30years.
Daughter-in-law remained resigned to the fact that the two children who are now professionals working across the causeway in Singapore will not take up the next baton. She cited the hard gruelling hours and tiresome feet standing whole day from morning till past 6.30pm as the coffee shop is packed daily. Many customers continue to ask if her husband is brewing the coffee for the day. Same coffee powder but under different hands and skills and you may end up with a different cup of coffee. The owners have attempted to impart by hiring others but they do not seem to produce the same results and quality demanded of the familiar customers who has been drinking the fragrant coffee for ages here.
