Tried the crab roll, at RM22 it's worth it. But quite oily as they toast it on the grill with generous amount of butter. Overall, drinks are great, coffee is superb, should try their burgers next time. 👍 Hope they consider to put airconditioning... Come on, al fresco dining in Georgetown? Really?!!

In need of western food, a decent burger was high on the list of wants when arriving in Penang, and was found on the first evening here, as Junk Cafe makes a great burger! Cooked how you want, the patty was big and juicy! Will go back for sure!

Everything about this place is wonderful! They do the most delicious burgers, sandwiches, juices and coffees. The place is covered in amazing antiques and there is always good music playing. Also the guys who run it are so friendly and obviously have a passion for what they do. After discovering this gem, we returned daily as we couldn't get enough... More

Stumbled upon Junk unintentionally and what a great find! We had a lovely warm welcome and the decor is fantastic! Things only got better.
