Ehhe Art Cafe and Gallery

One of the most experienced cafes in Johor Bahru is none other than the Ehhe Art Cafe, which is beautifully preserved and decorated, following the original building structure but given a new modern contemporary look and feel. The owners have taken a total of seven shop lots in a row to showcase a combination of art, local and western cuisine, and an exhibition space on the upper floor. The name EHHE (Pronounced Eh-Hey) means Earth Art which is quite catchy, while the overall mission is to introduce a place where art meets heritage.

Ehhe Art Cafe opens for breakfast and serves authentic local favourites like Nasi Lemak and Mee Siam complete with the local Kopi-O (black coffee). If you want to experience the ambiance of old Johor in a nice environment, this is the place to be. When you look closely at the interior of the cafe, you will discover quirky paintings, strange tables, and also find bits and pieces of this and that, which is complimented with the beautiful mood lighting.

As for the dishes, we recommend you try the Hailam Chicken Rice (RM13.00), Chilli Crab Mantou (RM18.90) and also the Tan Hiok Nee’s Special Hainanese Chicken Chop (RM16.90). For desserts, try the local Chendol (RM5.50) which is simply mouth-watering. One thing to take note here is that the service may be a little long due to the huge crowd that come here during breakfast and lunch.

The Ehhe art gallery on the upper floor is a must visit for art lovers as they constantly have different art displays from various artists. A good suggestion is to have your coffee, tea or meals, then head upstairs to browse the art display. The best time to visit the Ehhe Art Cafe is during the non-peak hours. For Muslims, this place serves no pork, no lard, no alcohol and there is no Halal certification. For an additional landmark, the century old Hiap Joo Bakery is just next to this cafe.
