Best cafe in Ipoh //

Ipoh combines colonial and cultural heritage with jagged limestone hills and cave temples. After a recent tourist expedition, more travellers are located in half the city between Kuala Lumpur and Penang. There are a lot of unique cafes around the city, especially around Concubine Lane in the centre of Ipoh where most food is being served. Therefore, we have considered making a list of some amazing cafes in Ipoh, which you can visit with family or friend.
