NEW Star Anise Café 82 Jalan Kam­pung Cina, Kuala Tereng­ganu (012 964 6480/www. face­

An af­ter­noon of wan­der­ing in Kuala Tereng­ganu’s mer­ci­less sun has us seek­ing refuge in the cool depths of Star Anise Café, a hip­ster-look­ing space with a sign­board that might make you think you’re walk­ing into a spa. Star Anise’s olive green walls, muted light­ing and wafts of good strong cof­fee all make a pretty fail­safe com­bi­na­tion. The beans are sourced from Kuala Lumpur, and meals such as nasi da­gang are avail­able in the morn­ings only. The side door leads to a beau­ti­ful lit­tle al­ley with old hand­painted Chi­na­town shop sig­nage. Child friendly. Credit cards ac­cepted. Sat–Thu, 10am–1am. Fri, 3pm–1am. $

NEW The Vinum Xchange 221 Jalan Ban­dar, Kuala Tereng­ganu (09 638 1353/www.face­ thev­inumXchange).

A mix of cof­fee and cock­tails, the Vinum Xchange is your mat-salle­hfriendly hang­out with ex­posed light bulbs, tall wooden stools and a small se­lec­tion of pas­tries. The crowd con­sists of young lo­cals and well­dressed back­pack­ers look­ing for a pint. The wall of wines will ap­peal to thirsty tourists in con­ser­va­tive Tereng­ganu. Health­ier drink op­tions in­clude yo­ghurt smooth­ies and Dilmah teas.

Daily, 11am–3pm, 6pm–10pm. $$
