K la, After going to these coffee shops in JB, I've decided to compile them and recommend the best offering from each cafe. Enjoy! Have a cuppa.

Click on the link to see the individual reviews

What to try: Affogato Luxurious

This is definitely one of the trendiest coffee shops in JB. Indulge yourselves in this industrial looking secret hideout. Great place for the weekend gathering with your closest friends. Of course, the topnotch quality of their coffee and food definitely will enhance your experience further.

Location: 30, Jalan Mutiara Emas 5/3, Taman Mount Austin

Affogato Luxurious -- RM12.00
Your usual affogato with a luxurious twist: warm alcohol
Cold on your tongue, but heat down your spine.

What to try: Rose Latte

The coffee pro people's hangout spot, indulge in high quality coffee with elegant and contemporary ambience. Great place to just quietly sip your coffee and talk about good things in life with your friends.

Location: 73, Jalan Molek 3/10, Taman Molek, 81100 Johor Bahru

Rose Latte -- RM13.00
Never knew rose extract TASTE this good besides from the irresistible floral scent. Bittersweet done awesome. 

What to try: Macadamia Latte

Love their super smooth texture and slightly moist foam. Open and comfy environment, great for lunch dates and also gatherings with your favorite people to chat and enjoy the food.

Location: 51-01 Jalan Molek 2/1, Taman Molek, 81100 JB

Macadamia Latte -- RM11.90

What to try: Magic

Magic is their specialty here, sorry I don't have a nice photo of it. But it's definitely for someone who prefers something in between a regular latte and piccolo latte. Less milkier than latte, with heavier espresso content. Something you would occasionally crave for after all your usual lattes and mochas. My flat white taste awesome though, super smooth and the foam was kinda like candy for some reason haha. Interior looks simple, chic and elegant, great place to have a coffee with your colleagues after a whole day of hectic work.

Location: 19, Jalan Molek 1/5C, Taman Molek 81100, Johor Bahru.

Flat White -- RM9.00

What to try: Flat white with homemade cookie and Lemon Cheesecake

Love the cheesecake coz it's not too heavy but the cheese is really smooth, perfect to go with your coffee. Coffee taste great, not so much of the bitter type, suits most people from different age groups.
Very warm and friendly cafe, with super comfy chairs and tea-lounge like interior. Great for a weekend gathering with your best friends to gossip, maybe complaint about work and of course laugh heheh...

Location: 147, Jalan Mutiara Emas 10/19 Taman Mount Austin
Flat White -- RM8.50

Lemon Cheesecake -- RM9.90

What to try: Mocha

The mocha doesn't taste like your usual mocha with chocolate syrup, it has a strong taste of cocoa but without the sugar(unlike chocolate). So yea, very aromatic and less sweet. The place, Love it. Simplicity and serenity. Quiet and spacious with urban furnishing. The wood and steel concept. I would say it's suitable for people who like to sip their coffee on their own, or come with a few friends for a quiet afternoon tea.

Location: 29, Jalan Molek 1/12, Taman Molek, 81100 Johor Bahru

Mocha -- RM11.00

What to try: Latte and Baked Rice

This cafe takes pride of their amazing latte art, where pictures of them are showcased on the walls of the restaurant. Latte taste great, love the balance of milk and espresso. Slightly more bitter but has a sweet aftertaste. Try their baked rice!!! It's not exactly special but still it's good. Looks cheesy but believe me it goes well with the rice and very appetizing. The place? Beautiful, feels like cozy home inside with wooden tables and chairs. On the outside, it's warm and looks like a garden tea lounge for Tai-Tai day.

Location: 7A Showhouse, Jalan Persiaran Jaya Putra 1 Bandar Jaya Putra 81100 Johor Bahru

Bacon and Mushroom Baked Rice -- RM17.90

Latte -- RM8.90

snap loads of photos when you're there!

After my descriptions of the cafe, you'll realize that each cafe are actually unique when it comes to both the food, beverage, environment and therefore suits different occasions. So I decided to make.....a 7 Day JB Cafe Hop Calendar. Who says you can't have coffee everyday??

Extra here....
8. C'estino (closed)
This is a very chic cafe with a wide range of food to choose from. From my previous visit, the coffee and food actually taste good, but I wasn't able to try out their impressive variety of western desserts. There's macarons of different flavors, cakes like tiramisu and brownies, creme brulee, and more!! The place, very spacious and I would say it's great for a sophisticated lunch or afternoon tea. Hope to visit there I recommend this place to you guys as well.

Location: Blok F-01-07 and 08, Jalan Harmonium 24/2, Taman Desa Tebrau, Johor Bahru

Hazelnut Latte -- RM8.00

Aglio Olio -- RM12.90

9. Be Coffee (former Just Want Coffee @ Taman Molek)
I know the current Be Coffee might not be serving the exact thing as the previous JWC, but still some photos sharing here from our experience at JWC Molek. The JWC Tiramisu is the bomb, try them at other JWC outlets like The Factory 30 and The Gardens@JP Perdana.

Location: 2, Jalan Molek 1/5C Taman Molek 91100
Caramel Macchiato -- RM9.50

If you happen to go Be Coffee, you'll love the classy and luxurious interior especially this full length display shelf of coffee brewing equipment. 

Hey guys, hope this post helps if you're thinking of which JB cafe to go and what to order...

Location: No 32 Jalan Austin Heights 8/7,Taman Mount Austin, 81100

Atlas Specialty Breakfast with 5 items - RM18.90
Sauteed mushrooms are super addictive. Should have ordered double servings haha

 Blueberry Waffles - RM22.90

Coming soon...
JB's Mickey Mouse themed cafe where you get to dine and enjoy games in a cute and lively atmosphere. Great for family gatherings or a fun meet up with your closest friend for some joy time. Personally think the food is just okay, but the Tiramisu and Oreo Cheesecake do worth a shot. 

Location: 7-01, Jalan Austin Heights 8/8 , Taman Mount Austin

A pretty cafe with a serene view of the ECOWorld Housing estates.

Location: @Eco Spring JB Jalan Jaya Putra 6, Taman Daya, 81100 Tebrau, Johore

A rather unique cafe with unique western food menu. If you're up for some delicious main courses or burgers together with wine or coffee. This is the place to go!

Location: 27, Jalan Austin Heights 8/4, Taman Mount Austin 81100 Johor Bahru

15. Homies by JWC
This IKEA inspired cafe is a perfect place for gatherings.

Location: Jalan Molek 1/27, Taman Molek, 81100 Johor Bahru

16. The Hare by SOT @ Mount Austin
Awesome desserts for ladies to indulge in.

Location: #01-01, Blok A, Menara Hartamas, Jalan Austin Heights 8/2 Johor Bahru

17. The Workshop Cafe and Bar by Gran Fiesta
Come here if you love thick chicken chops in your burger (instead of patties).

Location: 31, Jln Austin Height 8/8, Taman Mount Austin, 81100 Johor Bahru, Johor

18. MACO Bakery
To-go place for mille crepe lovers. Satisfy your cravings for that layered crepes with whipped creams in loads of interesting flavors. 

Location: 65, Jalan Sutera Tanjung 8/2, Taman Sutera Utama, 81300 Skudai, Johor

19. Joshua's Bistro
Not exactly a cafe but it's a great hangout spot to indulge in delicious meal and tasty wine. Really fell in love with the Rose of Salmon Aglio Olio, it's my favorite fish on my favorite pasta.

Location: 65,Jalan Austin heights 8/5, Taman Mount Austin, 81100 Johor

20. Diagon Alley 
All the way from Taiwan, it's not just for coffee fix but getting a boost of energy from all the fun and wacky beverages over here. Plus, the name is already doing its magic.

Location: 49-GF, Jalan Austin Heights 8/1, Taman Austin Heights, Johor Bahru

21. Kolla Coffee
Hands down one of the best brunch I've ever had. Initially the menu didn't seem to look impressive because the combination of ingredients isn't exactly familiar. But hey, the offering here is special, delicious and very satisfying. What's more, even the mocktails gives a refreshing boost. The garlic bread toast was so good, so does the delicious croquet and otak-otak sandwich.

Location: Lot 2110&2111, Jalan Permas Utara, Bandar Baru Permas Jaya, 81750 Masai Johor

22. Union Fashion Bar
Another unexpectedly delicious restaurant. Usually restaurants that has too many things on their menu tend to taste not as well. But everything I had from this restaurant was delicious. So good that I thought I was just lucky. Personal favorite is the Salmon Penne in Pink Creme Sauce, which is pretty much the goodness of carbonara and tomato combined.

Location: No 24, Jalan Sutera Tanjung 8/4, Taman Sutera Utama, Skudai, Johor
