“Affordable and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

Cosy cafe at Tanjung Bunga. If you're on the go and need breakfast bright and early, this would be the place. It's hard to find cafes that are open for business as early as 0630 hours on weekdays. Very good service and friendly staff. If I recall correctly, there is kopi luwak on the menu so, if you're game to try something different...go for it. I plan to return soon, to try the luwak.

“Food from the heart”
4 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
