Santola Bar is a hidden coffee heaven, secretly hiding within Kolombong industrial area. It has been one of my favourite coffee spot, secretly, for many months.
It’s also where I get deals done, with clients and contractors.
(Note: this is not a paid review)
Whenever I come Santola Bar, my mood automatically turns ZEN mode.
In other words, I become a productivity machine and get my work done.
(I suspect, mainly because there’s no distraction from attractive office lady, unlike when I am at Starbucks)
This place is so secretive that I honestly hesitate to share with readers ^^;
There are many reasons I like Santola Bar.
It’s hidden well within industrial area – no one knows how to come to this place. Even after I showed them the direction-_-
…(ok I am referring my mum)
29, Jalan Kilang,

It gets very quiet at times because no one knows this place! I love it! hahaha.
I have the “get things done” mood whenever I step into this place.
This bar serves as a getaway spot for me, from the noisy and rowdy coffee bars. E.g. Starbucks during weekend, where all parents bring their children to Starbucks for weekend ‘holiday’.
It’s a living hell.
Free Internet Wi-Fi. (their password is cafe123456, and no-one share bandwidth with me, heheheheheh)
Staffs are friendly. And they know their coffee!. Why? they have their own certified barista training here. All staff are the Jedi of coffee.
Santola bar only serve local coffee, Cap Kuda coffee, which are sourced from Tenom. They roast their own coffee in this own building, then distribute it. You’ll smell awesome coffee aroma from miles away.
Most customers here are either business owners or datuks-datuks, who came here to talk business. I can listen to their story from many tables away, cause the place is really quiet.
Sometimes, I feel like a boss when I am at Santola. Hehe.
They even call me Datuk nowadays.
Datuk gets RM0.25 discount.
This is my new favourite coffee spot.. please don’t come.
