Smiling Buffalo Café @Langkawi

The Smiling Buffalo café is a beautiful and unusual specialized in western-asian fusion coffee and breakfast menu found in a quiet, hidden from the lively Cenang beach. The café itself is nestled inside a traditional Malay inspired chalet property called Panji-Panji Tropical Wooden Home, fenced with lush alluring green scenery.

Without any eye-catching signboard, you will be only greeted by an aged vintage Beetle right on the entrance, as I turn into the lane, the sight of this design space in this quiet road bewildered me for a second. The seclusion ambiance and atmosphere give a kind of vintage, laid-back chill, back to nature feeling. The owner itself is an enthusiast collector or Volkswagen ride as you can find a few more cool Volkswagen vans inside the property.  The café’s name Smiling Buffalo is given by the owner’s kids. How adorable!

What is great is not the wonderful place but the delicious food as well.
The menu serves at affordable price range from RM9 to RM20.

Can you smell the coffee from there? Their specialty coffee claimed to be one of the best on island -SB Specialty coffee. A hint of coconut and local Gula Melaka aroma. A perfect kickstart to your morning. Try all their different options by sipping through the menu from RM10-RM14.

Since I am more of a tea person, I definitely prefer a cup of tea anytime. The zesty and refreshing Lemongrass Ginger Tea makes me feel like I just gotten out of a spa.

All day breakfast menu serves from sandwiches to pancakes. We tried the recommended dish on menu- Poached Eggs (RM18). Abbsolutely a comforting breakfast, two soft poached eggs and sausages drained in rich tomato sauce paired with homemade yeasty breads.

Another not to be missed is- Smoked Salmon (RM20). This simple dish is heavenly mixed of smoked salmon, runny poached eggs, mustard and homemade bread paired with jam and butter.



Pancakes and waffles selection from fruity & sweet banana flavors ,to bacon and sausage savory taste.

Not to forget there is a daytime live band performing on every weekend from 10.00am to 12.00pm just to delight your day.
