“Cozy cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

A small cozy café with alfresco and air conditioned setting. Menu consists of Asian and international specialities. Food was good. A few days after having our dinner there, my friend was still talking about the Ikan Sambal that he had. Good selections of local dessert as well eg. sago gula Melaka, pengat pisang. My personal favourite is the banana fritters with vanilla ice cream.

“It's a gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013 via mobile

After a hot and humid morning exploring the streets of Georgetown we(two couples) walked past Mews Cafe and decided to go in to have a look. The outside area of the cafe was tastefully shaded by the large leaves foliage and the inside was air conditioned. Although small the atmosphere was just right. We ordered Malaysian food for lunch and was very impressed. The food was well presented with modern twist, salad fresh and great flavours. Service was excellent, friendly & helpfully, especially the manager, Brian.
The next day we returned for dinner as it was close to our hotel, E&O. This time round we tried the western style dishes and we were not disappointed. Although pricey if you compare to the street food but comfortable environment, great flavours and good service more than make up for it.
Keep it up.

“Nice cafe”

Enjoyed a meal here one evening. Friendly cafe with reasonable live music. Food was good, as was the service. Prices are fine for a restaurant but a bit expensive for the cafe this is.

“My local daily fix”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

I have been eating and drinking coffee here since it first opened almost 3 years ago . The food has been always fresh, generous in portions and creative with weekly specials. I love lounging in the alfresco area watching people . Price is fair but expensive compared with street food but I feel it is great value .i hate to share this delightful secret cafe of mine but you can find out for yourself .

“Great food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

This tiny cafe serves excellent meals which are cheap, beautifully presented and very tasty. I ordered the Bento Box and my husband had the beef rendang. The coffee and cake is also very good. Will certainly come here on my next visit to Georgetown.
