My fiance and I had walked past Mews Cafe during a walk around Georgetown, and we were very excited to try breakfast outside on the pretty terrace. While the food was good and atmosphere pleasant, unfortunately the service at the end of the meal really ruined the experience for us.
At the beginning of the meal, we had ordered coffee off the breakfast a la carte menu (7 ringgits for a long black and 10 ringgits for a cappucino) and asked our waiter if we could have them iced (this was not shown as an option on the menu). He told us that was no problem at all and walked away to place our order. What he chose not mention was that it would be an extra charge of several ringgits per coffee. When we got our bill, we were incorrectly charged for two prefix meals (60 ringgits total), and when I asked our new waiter to fix our bill (as our original waiter had left), he told us this bill was actually cheaper than what we had ordered. He showed us the full menu (which we had not been given at the start) and the iced coffees were in fact a lot pricier, but our waiter had purposely failed to tell us this. We tried to fix the bill, but it got too complicated and we ended up just paying way too high a price for a simple egg breakfast and coffee. As a paying customer, I don't see why the waitstaff has to find ways to overcharge- Our waiter also tried to push us to order fresh fruit/juice several times, which we kept politely declining. If not for such issues with service, it would have been a very nice experience. I would definitely recommend going elsewhere for breakfast/coffee at a better value.
