Coliseum Cafe

Fabulously art deco

What we say: 3.5 stars

The streets of Kuala Lumpur were once littered with traditional Chinese-run cafes and while many have closed down, the fabulously art deco Coliseum Cafe lives on.

Coliseum has been serving food and drink for more than 90 years and while the mostly Western-style food may not hit any great heights, and the service is nothing to shout about, the place is soaked in history, and well worth at least one visit.

Coliseum is on Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman about half way (as the crow flies) between Masjid Jemak and Bandaraya LRTs. If you're walking from Masjid Jemak go via Jalan Melayu which has a lively street market.
