They serve great food and coffee! The eggs Benedict was great, coffee excellent, nice cafe. Only issue is that it seems like they took longer to serve the food. My husband finished his food and mine has not arrived yet. But it worked for us as we took turns to eat anyway with our little ones.

Lovely little place to meet friends or to have a nice breakfast or lunch. Food was tasty and coffee was good but you need to have time to enjoy your meal because the service was quite slow. The place was full when we were there. Pouched eggs were great!

Jalan Hutton is a tad out of the tourist tromping grounds but we discovered this place last year and have sought it out again for amazing coffee.

Penangites love runny eggs and hot crispy toast with their morning cuppa in George Town city's many old kopitiams. The transition to up the game was made when Secawan introduced bacon and good barista coffee. I don't remember seeing eggs benedict on café menus before this. Secawan introduced Eggs Benedict and made this their top seller for a few years.... More

A wonderfully designed cafe located in the heart of Penang's town centre though I have to admit that finding it may be tough for a newbie. Parking isn't really an issue despite the fact that it is located by the side of the road. There's several designated shoplots and a paid parking space just around the neighbourhood. Loved the coffee... More

Seems like a cool place to sit and have coffee & cakes or even dinners with friends. Love its piccolo latte—strong but not bitter, rather sweet actually. Not many barista can craft such coffee. Will return.

Yes, real honest to goodness American-style bacon. No need bacon. No Canadian bacon. No English bacon. Just good old fashioned streaky bacon. And it is awesome. The eggs Benny are killer too. Great French toast. Fried eggs were great. Scrambled eggs were a bit runny, but they always are in this part of the world....great place, we will come back.... More

I'm being nice using the word unsatisfactory rather than terrible. We ordered two set lunch meals. My caesar salad was brought way before my water and coffee and well before my friends soup. I was finished before his soup arrived.... Same goes for the main dish, my salmon arrived 15 minutes before his pasta, and I ended up sharing mine... More
