Maco Vintage - Cafe Johor Bahru JB
Unfurnished shophouses selling local food are usually seen everywhere along the streets of Johor Bahru, and that is what they are famous for and what Singaporeans are looking for when they visit Jb over the weekend for food trip. Unlike the usual shophouses, Maco Vintage is a fairly good ambience themed cafe which serves French pastry, desserts, coffee and main dishes.
Modern and sleek interior design with widely spaced tables
Prompt service received whenever service button was pressed
Range of sweet and savoury dishes with very affordable prices
Trio Choco Mille Crepe Cake (RM8.50) - White, milk and dark chocolate layered accordingly from the top till bottom of mille crepe. Not fantastic as it appears due to its lack of texture.
Croissant Smoke Salmon (RM18) - One of the best dish ordered in this cafe. The mini croissants were buttery and crispy, while the generous serving of smoked salmon was thick and fresh. Quite worthy for the price paid for.
Chicken Ham Pizza (15RM) - Thin crust pizza was thin and crispy, taste ordinary.
Waffle (RM12) - Waffle was too chewy with mochi texture. Overall too sweet and hard to chew.
Assorted flavours of Mille Crepe on display
This cafe is very well furnished and thus I had set higher expectation for its food and dessert. Food could be improved to match with its good ambience.
