Cool cafe

I know I should be paying less and eating Georgetown street food, but sometimes when you are hot, tired and hungry, it's just wonderful to come across some air conditioning & a really wonderful menu to peruse. The food lived up to it, just lovely.

We stayed at Muntri Mews and of course we tried the restaurant. It's a small place situated in the middle of the heritage area with a beautiful setting, a very nice garden and ambiance. The food was great, nicely presented and a little different than other restaurants nearby. The staff is very attentive and helpful. Highly recommended.

The prices are a little steeper than most other places, but it is definitely worth it. The ambiance is wonderful and the staff is great and speak English very well. For two main dishes, an extra side of rice, two iced teas, a watermelon juice, a dessert and a coffee it came to about 130 RM. The food was great... More

My partner and I ate here and loved it ! It's a little pricier than what's around on the street but it is just such a cut above that if you chose to dine here you shouldn't expect to compare it to street food prices! It was delicious. We had the Fresh spring rolls with the most amazing dipping sauce,... More

With not much open on Chinese New Year Thursday we opted for this cafe after some local advice. The spring rolls and pad Thai were very well done with fresh ingredients. House red wine ok , the total price for 3 persons around 130-140 ringgit so more expensive than other hawker options as we only had 2 starters and 2... More

We were staying at the Mews on the Penang leg of our Malaysian trip, and rolled in quite late at night. Tired and hungry, we decided to try the cafe food without any expectations, though we were surprised that the cafe itself seemed crowded for dinner. The udang fritters and kerabu bee hoon were superbly tasty! More than decent for... More

Chose the Malaysian set evening meal which was delicious - highly recommended.The staff then disappeared, forgetting their outside customers so we could not order further & in the end gave up & went in to get the bill.

We had a late lunch and enjoyed the friendly and fast service. There is a nice atmosphere both in and out. The food was well prepared and very tasty. Excellent value for money.

This pleasant little cafe is perfect for a late breakfast or early brunch. The set menu at MYR 30 is not cheap but reasonable for the area and setting with coffee (with free refills), fresh squeezed orange juice and a main dish. The atmosphere is pleasant with the shaded courtyard and fans. Definitely on my recommended list.
