With urban globalisation happening all over the world, the invasion of Coffee Culture from aboard, notably Starbucks and Coffee Bean and Teas, is unavoidable. The good news is local kopitiams have responded to this threat by rebranding themselves; by creating a new identity with a cool interior setting and combine with well trained and well dressed staffs. OldTown White Coffee is just one of them. OldTown also brings back good memory of yesteryears’ kopitiams of the 50s and 60s, which served hot coffee and toast-bread. And in OldTown the traditional way of making coffee by the Malaysian Chinese is well preserved.
Original coffee from the colonial time, and the ever popular toast bread with butter and kaya, these two items are the most memorial food and drink from the Olde Station Kopitiam. These two are also the must have products here.
Walk into any Olde Station Kopitiams and immediately one is overwhelm with the strong smell of burn charcoal. The burn charcoals are still used to toast the white bread here.
The Olde Station Kopitiam has already opened 2 outlets in Kota Kinabalu, one in City Mall and another one in Warisan Square. The third Olde Station Kopitiam is scheduled to open in 1Borneo on March 2008.
