Service? You can't call this service. The manager is rude. The staff doesn't care. I've been sitting here for half an hour and nobody bothers to clear the table or take order. Just because I came here alone, it doesn't make me their customer? They only take care of their friends that only visit them at the branch and took... More

We had the worst nasi lemak ever. We were charged RM14 before taxes for a really really horrendous nasi lemak. The fried chicken was dry n totally tasteless and weren't any groundnuts. Honestly Old Town White Coffee gives bad name to the word "nasi lemak". It is total injustice to this wonderful favourite Malaysian food. We felt cheated n it... More

The service was poor to say the least, the food was ok but some had been sitting in the bay Maree for some time and was not what you would wish for. Coffee was ok but in general I would look at other areas for your coffee. Much better available.

the food is quite good, snacks are great, especially the kaya-butter bread, but the coffee is the highlight! Really really good cup of coffee. Try their ice-coffee as well, the totally worth!

We were staying at The Jesselton and came back to the area having been out all day. I really felt like a coffee so we went to the nearby Oldtown White Coffee. I have nothing good to say I'm afraid other than their staff were the best thing about the place. We ordered 2 black coffees and I had 2... More
