Cafe hunting in Johor Bahru

I try to spend my Sundays wisely & not laze at home doing nothing productive. Friends & i planned a trip to JB weeks ago to go cafe hunting. We were supposed to meet in the afternoon to bus down tgth but R & i were rly late as he left his bike at a friend's plc (he forgot his bike keys & left em in jb the day before & i had spare keys) & we went over to get it before meeting my friends. Unfortunately, the moment we got to the bike, it started drizzling, then it poured like mad! We were at the East part of SG & we had to go to Woodlands checkpoint. So imagine how far tt was & we were FULLY DRENCHED. R gets extremely angry when situations like tt happen & curses like a sailor. He didnt want to go JB in the end as it honestly did dampen our moods. We even got into a heated argument.

As soon as the rain died down like hours later, R & i decided to go in the end. It was such a bad Sunday afternoon. Well im more than glad tt we made the decision to go. Cause when i met my friends i had fun & it made me feel better. At the end of the day, i cld say "I had a great end off to my only off day tt week. I am glad i decided to go JB in the end."

I shall let the photos do the talking (: I hope this post wld be of help to those who tend to go some place else tt is not SG, & yet not to far away for some new cafe hunts (:

 Had their potato, quail egg, mushrooms & lettuce salad. I disliked it so so much mainly because the mayonaise was overwhelming. My friends however, kinda liked it. So i guess it is up to preference  Their mayo was also pretty tart. Which was why it threw off my taste buds.
 Their smoothies are not bad. I quite liked it. I had the Mango smoothie & the others shared the chocolate smoothie.





 Cinnamon bun was really yummy. Down side is tt it was quite small.







 Kafe roost
9 Jalan Dhoby, Johor Bahru

 Kafe Roost has an open air dining area & a fully air conditioned room tt looks v much like an attic. They believe a lot in the 3 R(s), Recycle, Reuse, Reduce. Their furniture the one inside the air conditioned room), uses newspapers & cardboards as chairs/tables. I love the concept of the cafe & how nicely decorated it is. A v lovely place to chill & js hang w friends.










 Their coffee & yoghurt is not bad. Other food didnt seem to whet our appetites.


 R & i had our "mini photo shoot" gng on. Hahaha i hv my reasons for always doing these wherever i go. U'll understand why in years to come if it ever comes to pass (:






 I loveeee this set of bookshelves! Super pretty! Kudos to the designer. Such a great idea.







 We stopped by a vintage + pre loved clothing shop called :

The Scandalist
No. 27, Jalan Dhoby
80000 Johor Bahru

P.S. This shop is super awesome and has great vintage finds at a super super cheap price!! I snagged 2 vintage swing skirts & a lovely chiffon floral maxi dress at a total of SGD30!! 




 Then we hopped over to another shop tt sells v vibrant looking clothes called:
