With Taiwanese high school romance movies You Are The Apple of My Eye and Our Times both setting box office records in multiple countries, it’s evident that we can’t get enough of these heartwarming and nostalgic coming-of-age films. Now, we get to live out our own campus romance fantasy at 初中一校 High School Kopitiam, a new classroom-themed cafe in Mount Austin located just a 20-25 minute car ride away from the Johor Bahru Checkpoint!

Complete with a handwritten menu on chalkboards, wooden tables and chairs that resemble the ones in the movies, the cafe serves comforting breakfast platters, sandwiches, toasts, and nuggets at very affordable prices – much like the good ol’ times in our school canteens!
