RIVER CAFE, Segamat

River Cafe, Segamat by the river along Jalan Sultan

River Cafe, Segamat at nite... nice place to chill out

River Cafe, Segamat is an old shop house that hasn't loose it charms

Segamat is a small quaint town just by the border of Johor and Melaka. Life is easy and everybody knows everybody there. It's a place where you can find peace and serenity that is lost in other big cities. People here tend to take things at slower pace and time seems to slow down. There's many interesting places that you can find here like old row of pre-war shop houses, cute shops selling items we used to have during childhood days and little wooden stalls that sells snacks. A place i find interesting is this little cafe called River Cafe, Segamat just opposite the river along Jalan Sultan. It's a nice place to chilled out day or nite and have a bite or drinks while the rest of the world goes on with their busy lives. There's even a little garden setting at the back for a more private chit chat and gossiping. All the decor here are collections from the owner over the years and from all over the places. Food and drinks here are mainly of the Taiwanese, Indonesian, local and with a few western menu thrown in. You may find the food simple but its really interesting and good. I have to say that you can't find it anywhere else in Segamat. Prices here are reasonable and the food lives up to their expectation. Having a drink and food with your friends here really do makes you forget bout the rest of the mad world but if you are still hunger for the outside world, there's free Wifi for those urbanites junkies. Next time if u feel like to escape from the cities, just drop by Segamat and stop by River Cafe, Segamat for a different feeling. No regrets!
