We’re The Replacement - Lodge & Kitchen: a team of passionate gastronomes, coffee lovers, and advocates for simple living. Inspired by Melbourne’s coffee and brunch culture, founder edward Ng created The Replacement in 2015 by injecting new life into a 1940s heritage shophouse on the historic Jalan Dhoby. There’s something to be said about the unique café culture in Melbourne, and our dream was to bring this experience to our local community. Our establishment has since grown from a quirky little café to a go-to destination for dining and lodging in Johor Bahru.
At The Replacement, our mission is to provide every one of our guests with wholesome, unforgettable memories. To achieve this, we strive to pay the utmost attention to detail. From our sincere service, to hand-picking only the finest ingredients, we ensure that everything we do, we do with love and care.
Of course, achieving this dream would not be possible without our dedicated team, who have been the backbone of this establishment. It takes a village to run the Replacement, and we are truly grateful for each other’s support.
In The Kitchen, the formula we follow is a simple one: Serve good food and good coffee, for people to share with good friends. We cook up sumptuous, nourishing feasts for you to enjoy - from cosy brunches to sunset tapas and drinks.
