We had a few coffees from Latte Mocca Cappuccino to Ice-Blended . Coffee is not robust enough and the milk is unable to stand alone. There are an array of cakes, crepes and other confectioneries to choose from. Not a kind of place to for...More

We were told to try this out by our uber driver who had listen to me talking about my craving for a 'proper sandwich', doorstop bread and good filling! I've been travelling for 2 months and just craved a simple sandwich. I was not disappointed,...More

I always make it a point to stop by China House when I'm in Penang, but a recent visit with friends was disappointing. While most of the staff were friendly, service was really slow in terms of ordering and getting the bill. Food was OK...More

A nice place to relax and have their tiramisu. Coffee was also good. Walk the entire stretch of the cafe from one end to the other !

We are here for coffee and cakes. Passable, not exceptional. Cakes are of good value with really generous serving. It's crowded, so do not expect much of a service here. Touristy but worth a visit to experience the rave.

The cakes! Oh dear me the cakes (over 50 kinds). The food is delicious, but the cakes are the center piece of this eclectic and charming restaurant. The staff is friendly and helpful. It is a bit pricy, but worth the money.

Visited with my boyfriend once when we were in Penang. They serve the best cakes 👍🏼 Too many too choose from. Also tried their Thai chicken parcel and baklava. These two are definitely the stunner! 😊😊

We went there at night to enjoy a glass some wine, snacks and the live music. We had a really good time there. The house is very big and various parts of the house have different atmospheres. Really cool place!

Yes... but you gotta try the cakes, 30 different types served daily. And that's really amazing 😉
