Nice cafe in George Town. Good food and an excellent host. The clocks on display are truly vintage and you eat your food as they chug along. Food is above average and the ambiance is excellent.

Kebaya is the diningroom of the Seven Terraces and is open to hotel guests and the public.Open daily, 7pm till 10pm.Christopher Ong has worked with the hotel’s chefs to create a menu of classic Indo and Straits Chinese Nyonya dishes. They have refined these using French cooking techniques and innovative produce to deliver surprising new twists on this already fascinating cuisine.The effect is simple, delicious full of flavour and dazzling.A four course degustation menu of entrée, main course, vegetables and dessert is served in Chinese style to allow guests to share the dishes. The Baba Bar is open daily from 2pm onwards, with live piano music in a very intimate setting.

The Mugshot Cafe

Reviewed By kaylee_vn - Hanoi, Vietnam

I visited The Mugshot 2-3 times during my short vacation in Penang because it's incredible. Best Italian cafe to start your day. Try some of the pastry from the bakery next door, I swear he smell was tempting. Cream cheese bagel and homemade yogurt was their best highlight. Make sure you try them all. Hipster ambience, many space for solo, couple and group also.

a left turn on the side street led us to this shop. this shop is amazing ! if only we had had just had lunch, we would have bought half the shop. i did get the delicious tea egg, a durian tart and a box of salted egg pastry. i wish i had more space for more yummy pastries... next time for sure! very lovely place - i believe there is a little back yard you could have your tarts there as well.

Bistro Tang

Reviewed By puneet_mishra - Hyderabad, India

It was rated pretty highly and we walked in , quite disappointing , I guess that we asked in at 3 pm was also partly responsible for this. The decor is quite nicely restored and you have various options for Seating. I am sure there are things that please a lot of patrons but the Nyonya curry was pretty sad and did not feel that it was fresh, the wraps were quite oily and full of eggplant
All in all a bit disappointing late lunch

Small cozy cafe for your everyday coffee and hangouts. Coffee. Cheesecakes. Churros. Cronuts.

Lovely little cafe! Coffees were good but the highlight is the churros. Absolutely delicious! Crispy on the outside & fluffy inside. Reasonable price (pls maintain it!) Although they don’t have gazillion cakes on display, I left with happy heart ❤️

My Own Cafe

Reviewed By 888travel - Bristol, England

Ok, so everyone goes here for the laksa - which was very nice, but apart from that, there were only 3 other dishes on offer (char kway teow, and something with rice). So don’t make a special trip if you’re after more to eat than just a bowl of laksa!
It was nice but this place probably doesn’t deserve a top 10 rating on the basis of one dish alone.

Quaint cafe along Muntri Street. Delicious cakes made by the very friendly owner Nell who is very passionate about her food. No scrimping on ingredients and the cakes were reasonably priced. We Tried the Tiramisu and Durian Cream cake...yummy. WIll definitely be back.
