We came here on the last night of our visit to Penang and it was a great ending to our trip! Try the beef rendang and Nasi lemak - authentic and fragrant! Service is great - polite and unobtrusive. Really enjoyed ourselves!

If you're local, you won't be particularly impressed with the dishes nor the drinks. However, if you're tired from walking along the heritage sites, this place is nice to duck into.

We have our breakfast there. I love the ambient & the surrounding. The food also was great! You can either sit inside or outside.

A lot of places shut early in penang, like 8.30 pm early! And a lot of other places are closed on Sundays! This cafe is open both on Sunday and till late in the evening, and that's how we ended up here based on a quick trip advisor scan. While the food is okay, I definitely thought it was overpriced....

It is expensive : we took the platter for 2 and 2 juices and we paid 105RM. Which is huge for Malaysia and mostly Penang since there is cheap delicious street food everywhere. But honestly this restaurant stands out. The platter includes starter dishes and desert and the portions are big, I would say it's more for 3 than for... More

Simple delicious breakfast for people to chill and relax. Of course the price is slightly higher compared to the local delicacies you can get from the regular stalls. Anyway the place is presentable especially when you want to bring your visitor for coffee or light meals after walking around the streets . The place is small so is really for... More

Just had some smoothies and coffee. I would say ok if i had as much money. Quality/cost is just overvalued.
