Simba Coffee opened in 2009 and is on the second floor in a quiet corner of Husizhan Creative Park. To find the cafe, you have to go through a corridor and walk up the stairs to the second floor. The cafe is roomy with two floors and an attic. Animal lovers can enjoy their time here as there are six cats and a parrot in the cafe.
The furniture and decorations have been collected from various places around the world by the owner. The fun cafe and the historical surroundings have attracted many photography enthusiasts and commercial shoots.
