“Food from the heart”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

The menu is eclectic, and the portions large. Feel free to request amendments or combinations within reason--they are very eager to accommodate dietary needs and preferences.

Beware of peak period crush. It is sometimes standing room only, and menu items will run out.

“amazing food, friendliest staff”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

the food is simply incredible; i cant help but return to Gusto's on a daily basis. Although the prices definitely aren't the lowest, the quality of food is worth every penny (or ringgit) spent. definitely a "must-try" stop on anyone's penang trip. Enjoy.

“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

This is one place where you can find an authentic American breakfast, with crispy bacon and lox and bagels (bagels, cream cheese and smoked salmon for those unfamiliar with the item). The pulled pork sandwiches are just like home. I shouldn't, but I always have the carrot cake when I am there. It is great. The price is very reasonable too.

“Good Breakfast Spread & Pork Burger”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

Come here on a regular basis for breakfast of brunch/lunch. The breakfast options are not bad too. One of the breakfast item I like is their home made bagel with different options (cream cheese, bacon, scramble eggs). For lunch/brucnh, they serve a mean pork burger....very nice n juicy n tender on the pork. When you order your breakfast or lunch/brunch, some items do come with a drink or coffee ( I think ). They also have a decent salad offering too.The owner is a friendly chap too. Price wise is not very expensive averaging around RM10 to RM20 per meal depending on what you order. Since this place is non-aircondition, try to go before the noon sun comes up else it can get a bit warm.
