Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It is one of the rarely restaurant in Penang to prepare the food from scrap material. It promote healthy food without sacrifice favours. We ordered the vegetarian pizza and really served with plenty of mushroom and of course the best is the sour dough.

In Penang for nearly 6 months, Yin's is my morning treat; incredible breads, bagels and baked goods, fresh juices and coffee roasted on premises. A small but delicious menu of breakfasts & lunch specialties including Penang's best pizza! A friendly staff and the feel of a family run bakery & restaurant. Highly recommend

A Place to visit for Breakfast... Do not miss it, plenty to offer at a very reasonable price and taste is very good... Yin is such a lovely adorable lady with the kind Father In Law helping out to run the business besides a young charming and thin lady which I think must be the Manager perhaps. All of them carries a 5 Star badge of Service, as per se. Many Foreigners there for brekkie be it from Australia, UK, Germany, Russia or even Japan just to name a few... Please do Visit them when you are in Penang or at least once in your lifetime.. Haha

Came here for brunch, plenty of staff working yet service was very poor. For such food charges yet have to self service on utensil. Other table closer to the counter was served food with utensil were given by the waiter yet food came to oyr table without utensil, called the waiter yet was hiding behind counter until have to walk up and pick the utensil. Not sure all the staff hide behind counter for what reason as its not a big cafe...poorly manage employee yet set beside Asscot hotel. All the staff came out in groups to clear up table yet cant attend to customer needs when requird. Food was standard like any other cafe.

Really good coffee and especially love the fresh smoothies. The food is delicious and fresh. HOWEVER, we came here twice and we waited 40 and 55+ minutes for the food to come after ordering. It was busy but didn’t appear overwhelmed, we walked right in and there were still tables free. We are all about being relaxed but its a bit much. Thankfully we had nowhere to be! Id recommend only if you have time to kill. Also if you’re patient and have things to do - we used the Wi-Fi to research places to visit, but still not great.

I was attracted to the aromatic smell of breadS when I first stepped in the cafe. Reminds me of in Europe. We tried the mix breakfast set and quiche. All were delicious and up to our taste buds. Beautiful brew coffee too... Nice ambience! Will be our regular place in future

Incredible food!!! I sought this place out specifically after seeing on social media, and so glad I did! A little breakfast haven. We had a couple of stunning coffees and juice mocktails alongside our breakfasts, then ordered takeaway cakes which were thoroughly enjoyed later! I absolutely recommend the lemon poppyseed loaf, 10/10 from me. A gorgeous place to spend a morning having a coffee or something to eat, with lovely lovely staff.

You need to keep up standard of customer service even though your business is good. Don’t know if your staff is underpaid & overworked. Not very nice in morning & looks unhappy . Asking to split the meal orders to two as sharing & they tell your customer you won’t do extra when busy .

We ordered mango and avocado salad, vegetarian pesto pasta and babycino. Originally the salad sauce is mayonnaise but we eliminated that. The mango was too ripe. The avocado was served as sauce. Average. The pasta serving was small. It came with 4 pieces of vegetarian meat which was dry and tasted like deep fried tapioca. The babycino tasted like skim milk. No hints of coffee at all. Except for the pleasant venue, the food was too expensive and mediocre.

Ordered the eggs Benedict which was quite a generous serving. However the poached eggs were very cold, as if straight out of a refrigerator. When I tried to ask if their eggs were always like that, none of the staff could answer. No supervisor present at 10 am. Also, the Hollandaise sauce was quite lacking in taste

Lovely staff. Lovely atmosphere. Lovely food. We are breakfast there 3 times during our stay. The food was always fresh and clean and the cafe was always a busy little location, with many local ‘Penang-it’s’ stopping for coffee, picking up their sourdough and freshly baked cakes. A really nice vibe with a clean bathroom to boot

Lovely food, fresh ingredients, beautiful fresh sour dough bread and lovely salads. Gave our tummies a welcome break from the mish mash of street food. Great service and food made with authenticity. Well done

Great little breakfast spot. A little out of the way. Nice outdoor tables to eat at. I had the salmon eggs benedict bagel and the avocado and banana smoothie. Both really tasty. You order at the counter and its bought to your table. The pastries looked good but I was too full to try.
