Prices are a bit higher than other local places, however the first minute you set foot in the cafe it's clear that this place is clean and of good quality. I'm more than happy to pay $6 instead of $3 for a meal in Georgetown if it means the meal is made with fresh ingredients, is tasty and is worry... More

The location is kind of hidden from the busy chulia street. It's quite and that's what I like it. Great cafe feels, we didn't order much of F&B but the smells of rendang chicken from next table was no wrong. Worth a pit stop sometimes.

I was celebrating a big birthday party at the Mews Cafe's sister restaurant Kebaya at Seven Terraces so I decided to have a cocktail party at the Mews Cafe to warm up the guests the night before the main event. The theme was Hawkers' Night and what an amazing experience it turned out to be. The cafe was turned into... More

It's a must for me to order the sago gula melaka every time I come here. It's rich in flavour and sinfully good. I've tried Helen's Curry Mee...its authentic and one the best I've tried in Penang so far. For the foodies...A must try Cafe.

Every time I'm in Penang I have to make a pit stop here. Was in town again a couple of wks back with friends from KL & Shanghai and they were so impressed with the food we ended up eating there three days in a row inspite of all the irresistible street food Penang has to offer. Personally, particularly loved... More

We were warned away from this restaurant with the comment "it's just a cafe!". Well, then most restaurants should strive to be cafes! We felt a third of the value of this restaurant is the ambience they have created: open doors between the inside tables and the outside terrace with the gorgeous plants - all cooled by the aircon. Where... More

Mews Cafe was recommended by a friend. We walked in after having walked the better half of the day. Its cool interior was welcoming and service spot on. We had from the Pie Tie to Bee Hoon to the Laksa and they were all yummy! The attention to detail from the staff was indeed refreshing. I had a piece of... More

I can say, though I've been to Penang a few times, this is IT! Heard so much about how Gerogetown has changed over the last few years but this is now what I have in mind. One of the best experience I had during this trip is meal time at Mews Cafe. It was highly recommended by a good friend... More

We stayed in Muntri Mews for 5 nights and had breakfasts each morning, a few lunches and dinner a couple of times too. Despite so many excellent other place in Penang to eat, we kept coming back for the great food, lovely atmosphere, romantic setting and lovely staff. Breakfast has a few choices with Nasi Lemak, Roti Paratha, a few... More

Found this place whilst walking around George Town and decided to have dinner there on our last night. Wish we had found it earlier! Indoor/outdoor options in the small eatery. Very good drinks (try a Lychee martini) excellent service, friendly staff and very good, well-presented food.
