This was hands down the coolest cafe I've ever been too. The "junk" which has been collected and used inside the cafe is unreal and ads to the vibe of the cafe. The coffee was the best I've ever had. This added to the ambience of the cafe made for a relaxing morning. A must see in George Town!

This is a very cool place in the centre of Georgetown. Great coffee served by self-confessed coffee addict - Justin.To make things even better, this cafe is half junk shop and half serious film buff. A great combination, even if the coffee was a little on the pricey side. Keep up the great work, Justin.

Stopped by for a latte. I was there on a weekday so there wasn't much crowd. The cafe can only fit up to 8 people max. Many people actually stop by to take away (considering there isn't really space to sit as well) No doubt, the coffee is good. The interior of the shop is full of old junks that... More

This place is in good rank in the Georgetown’s restaurants list on Tripadviser and we wanted to make sure not to miss it for our second trip to Penang. We were so disappointed to find out that they were not serving any cooked food. Why are they listed under restaurant? Anyway, since we were there we had coffee. It was... More

I love old thing,I love to explore and I love good coffee, so this place attracted my attention because of the "junk" and the "coffee". I must confess I was disappointed with the whole experience. Yes the coffee was good, but not the best I have tasted in Penang. The junk actually overwhelmed me because it was so cluttered you... More

This place has rather limited seating. While the interior 'junk' gives the place some character , it is rather cluttered. I personally find the place almost claustrophobic. For a coffee addict, I find both the cappuccino and caramel macchiato of average taste. The best coffee in town? - not by a long (cappuccino ) shot! I could easily think of... More

Never expected to find an awesome place in the hustle bustle of Chulia St. The setup was done well with attentive service. Coffee was good but food wise has nothing much to offer. Will return for the junks / antiques only.
