Now I'm not saying this way too expensive but everything is relative. Something similar that we ordered would have been slightly cheaper in other well rated cafe's. While China house is the best place to be in the evenings. I think day time you can't...More

Interesting restaurant in an interesting building in the middle of Georgetown. Good food, very scrumptious desserts. Service can be a bit slow and watch out for the mosquitoes, need to apply lots of mossy repellent. Worth a visit and return visits when you're in penang.

I have been here many times (7x). Dont come on Saturdays/Sundays or public holidays, unless you want a super packed location with stressed, unfriendly staff and queue up to +1h. This place grew too fast too big. I normally like this place, not only because...More

I always love to come here when I visit Penang. The cafe is so vintage and artsy. Nice place to hangout with friends and family. Beach street bakery is a must to try here and my favourite is their Tiramisu.
