“Beautifully arty and tasty”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

Super nice laid back cafe, delicious orange juice, tea and coffee!
Great bagels, home made and fresh. The home made creamy yoghurt are to die for as well!
Nice to sit on the small wooden chairs under the arcade watching the china town life or in the comfy armchairs at the back.
We came back several times, the staff was lovely as well!

“Busy little Cafe”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

There was a constant flow of people in and out of the restaurant. Love the bread. The wooden crate furniture is charming. The menu was quite limited but interesting and the service was quite fast.

“Excellent Food, Service and Ambiance”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

This little coffee shop is a must stop when in Penang. I'm absolutely in love with their Bagel Selection (Cream Cheese and Salmon, Turkey Ham and Cranberry) and their home made yoghurts, which are simply refreshing and tasty. Apart from the food, the staff is truly helpful in case you feel lost or you require any local feedback on the area. They have various different seating areas, so you can chose your level of comfort.
