Located at a fork in the road just off the main stretch of Chinatown, the iconic façade of this landmark greeted anyone approaching its old school coffee house. Beneath elegant Art Deco curves, it was the ideal perch for a spot of people watching, while nursing a cup of kopi gao (thick coffee), of course. Meanwhile, muffled sounds of a mahjong game waft through the air, courtesy of the clan associations housed in the floors above, the soundtrack to life in a bygone era.
Still in the service of local denizens today, the building has been converted to an eclectic restaurant and bar.
