If you like adorable mascots and Japanese architectural designs, then Miyakori Coffee is your cup of tea. Featuring pastel decorations and wooden furniture, the feeling is like stepping inside a Muji store or a Chateraise outlet. The abundant use of whites gives the place a bright, clean and airy feel. Their cakes come stenciled with their cute mascot in cocoa powder and the taste is light on the tongue – not too cloying or rich. For mains, go to the Bukit Indah branch.
Address: Level 5, Johor Bahru City Square, 106 – 108 Jalan Wong Ah Fook, 80000 Johor Bahru.
Address: 41 Jalan Indah, 22/14 Bukit Indah, 79100 Johor Bahru.

First thing that caught our eye was the minimalistic vibes of The Replacement – Lodge & Kitchen. Despite its pared down interiors, the food was anything but. Expect scrumptious brunch, crispy churros and of course, a good cup of coffee. Our churros came with a yummy salted egg dip. Other strange combinations include Soft Shell Crab Bao. Oh, and did we mention they provide lodgings too?
Address: 33 Jalan Dhoby, Bandar, 80000 Johor Bahru.
