If you’re all about the ‘gram life, it’s time you got back to it while enjoying a gastronomical treat - at Bica & Co Courtyard Cafe! 100% Halal-certified by JAKIM and located in the heart of Melaka, this cosy cafe is a cool addition to the historical city’s cafe scene. Plus, it’s a great excuse for a road trip down south!

This New Halal Cafe In Melaka Serves Western Dishes With A Local Twist

Situated inside Hotel Rosa Malacca, this award-winning cafe is about to be your favourite spot! Plus, you don’t have to worry about parking as the hotel has plenty of it. Inside, the cafe sports a spacious rustic look with a glass wall to allow plenty of natural sunlight to stream in while you enjoy your visit. But really, it’s the menu that will truly brighten up your overall experience. 

Here, you’ll find a wide range of Western fusion tasty eats, using local ingredients right from Melaka. Here are our favourites:

Tuck into the signature dish on the menu, Spaghetti Malaya. If you’re wondering about the name, wait ‘til you find out what it is. It’s an interesting take on our nasi lemak - but in pasta form! That’s right. Served with the usual side dishes like sunny side up egg, shredded chicken, crispy anchovies, crushed peanuts, sliced cucumber, red onion and homemade sambal, this one-of-a-kind dish can truly challenge one’s palate.

For a beefy affair, indulge in the homely fare of the Bica Beef Burger. Juicy and flavourful, every bite just leaves you wanting more. Served with a sunny-side-up egg, garlic aioli, lettuce, cheese, turkey bacon, french fries and salad - it’s definitely a wholesome meal! What makes it unique is the onion that’s caramelized with Gula Melaka. Yup, it’s so yummy you might order a second round. 

Got room for dessert? If you’ve got a sweet tooth, sink your teeth (no pun intended) into the cafe’s very own Malacca Crepe. Inspired by the famous kuih keria, this crepe is filled with mashed sweet potatoes, folded and drizzled with a generous serving of Gula Melaka caramel and topped with Vanilla ice cream. What diet, you say? ;)

Besides whipping up a good menu, Bica & Co Courtyard Cafe is also home to some of Melaka’s best Instagrammable spots. 

Set within an alfresco garden with a vast landscape of green foliage, get your Instagram game on and smile for the camera! What’s a cafe visit without some camera action, anyway? ;)
