Moon Tree 47 Cafe Review, 4.2 out of 5 based on 1 rating

Moon Tree 47 Cafe”, interesting name but I have no idea what does it mean. It has no relationship to Cafe either. I found this cafe when I was looking for cafe around the Jalan Muntri, Georgetown. By now, you should able to guess that the shop name is actually link to it location. Muntri does sound like Moon Tree is it?

Moon Tree 47 cafe is position itself as a cafe, art gallery and home stay. It is a pre-war historical commercial unit which converted as cafe on the ground floor and home stay on the second floor. You can easily found this cafe as it has a big red color post office box in front of it.

If you still have difficulty to find this café, just look for Camera Museum instead. The Moon Tree 47 cafe is located on the left side of Camera Museum as shown above.

Pre-war commercial unit

When we talk about pre-war commercial unit, it always links with the style of the building where the width of the unit is ~ 20 ft wide but the length of the unit is > 120 ft. long. Along the long stretch of the unit, it always split into 3 main sections. First is the main living area, then the middle section where it come with a open well design for air circulation and final section is the kitchen section.

Upon you enter the Moon Tree 47 cafe; you will found that the main lobby is full of antique. I can’t show you any picture of it as taking photo is prohibited in this area. You can make the order at the main lobby and proceed to the center section or third section for dining.

Picture above show the center section of the old pre-war unit. It has the open well design and the decoration of the cafe is simple. It does not have the luxury feel or modern feel which you seen in the Starbuck. Instead, it made you feel at home and you can sat on the chair with whatever pattern that you like.
