went in for a look as friends recommended it.
taking us 2 days to find it.we found out that we walk very close to it but turned the wrong direction.
it was interesting to see what they did inside.
we had just coffee & cake but the cake was very nice.
i found the stuff was to attended .we wanted to Relax & look around & they were there next to us.even when i went to decide on the cake i felt they didn't gave me space. & then when we wanted the bill it was hard to get eye contact with them .but living in Asia im quite used to it

perfectly located in the heart of the Georgetown heritage area within walking distance to popular sites like Clan jetties, those street arts etc.. while you are walking the heat of Penang from site to site, this is a great place to drop in for a snack, juice or coffee.

Atmosphere is great with a nice courtyard at the back and you will also be sitting in one of the many historic colonial houses of this city that the owner has so carefully restored to maintain its character.

I cant speak on the food as I only had drinks here.

Service was pleasant and efficient.

A simple but well designed cafe / restaurant-bistro in a converted row of former shophouses. Small but attractive menu selection, a bit unusual. Excellent baked desserts.
