It’s a coffee shop that lets you go back to your childhood, and its style is dreamy. I believe every girl coming in here will be very crazy to take pictures. It’s a pink house and discovered in Johor Bahru. Although there are many fashionable restaurants in the vicinity of the city square mall with industrial decor, this slightly higher restaurant will be a paradise for all pink girls. Once Upon A Time Cafe & Boutique stands out for its modish decor, all decked out in an eye-catching shade of pink.

When most people come to this cafe for dessert, you’ll be glad to know that they also serve staples-like pasta, pizza and sandwiches. The outer layer of the toast is hard and crisp, so the knife takes a lot of strength to pass through. But it’s furry, and it fits well with the ingredients. For a themed coffee shop, the price here is very qualified. If you are a girl, this all-pink coffee shop is worth the trip, especially in the beautiful environment.
