“Breakfast the right way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

You got to love a place that has something called the Lumberjack breakfast. Essentially, it's a giant breakfast of eggs, bacon and the works brought to Penang by the cafe's young Penangian owner who lived for a while in Canada. While I didn't have that, I did have a bagel with butter, peanut butter and jam, which was delicious. We also went for lunch, and I had the drumstick with pepper sauce and rice, which is another winner. Interestingly, the cafe as a matter of course service coffee or tea with its meals, a practice that seems straight out of the 50s and 60s. I like it. I also like the general ambiance of the cafe as well as the brisk friendliness the staff shows.

“Really Likeable Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

This is a small cafe on backpacker-central Lebuh Chulia. It's a big cut above the average traveler's cafes. Good breakfasts are the speciality but it's a worthwhile lunch destination, as well. I had the BLT with cheese on a bun, rather than a bagel and it was outstanding. The bacon was Canadian-style rather than British/American streaky bacon -- quite delicious. The cafe is clean, air-conditioned, and pleasant without being fancy in any way.

“Excellent breakfast”

We were in Penang for two days and luckily found this cafe on our first morning. BLT bagels so fresh and yum as was the rest of the menu. Service fast and friendly and price was very reasonable.

“Great in all ways”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

After finding this place and having lunch here i was so suprised about the food, how nice and good it was that i went again the next day for my lunch, and the day after that, and another day.
The cafe owners are really nice and friendly and do everything to serve you well.
The food was amazing, from local to western all with good quality. And what you get for the price is really nice, coffee is included in the lunch and also a small pie. The bagels taste really great! O, and the coffee is worth trying also!
