We had very tasty wanton noodles and prawn noodles (Penang Hokkien prawn mee) in this Peace & Joy Cafe. The fruit juice was good too. Cheap price and friendly people. Highly recommended especially for budget travellers.who stay in Georgetown or visiting this area close to Little India..

A basic bacon and scrambled egg can be found here. Also, teow cheow etc. But the coffee is real and strong and the western breakfast good. Watch the locals going to work. This is Penang at work.

Have the Penang White Laksa - tasty with spices but not too spicy hot. It will make you bless your tastebuds.
