Stopped in on a whim as the cafe I was heading to was closed and really enjoyed my sandwich (smoked salmon). Friendly staff and a very quiet atmosphere and a little more traditional than some of the more modern cafes in the area.

Thanks for stopping by at our place 55 Café & Restaurant. Glad that you enjoyed our Kim Guan Coffee. Maybe in future we will offer again 3D.....a bit a hassle to find staff. Best wishes.

We have been occasionally to the place when we came to Penang back and forth. Simply we love the cozy athmosphere of the cafe especially when you can sit outside. The service is super friendly but yet professional. You will never be disappointed with them!...More

My children and I stopped here for breakfast on a cycle tour of the street art in the area. Rubilyn was an excellent hostess who is a great asset to this quaint little shop.

This place is good...tucked away in a quiet backstreet but a short walk to everything...a retreat from the heat and humidity... The coffee is the best that we found in Georgetown and the service was impeccable...
