batu ferrenghi is missing this type of beach side cafe. Found it on trip advisor and glad we went looking for it. Only disappointment is that it doesn't open in the evening

Excellent stop for a quick lunch. Possibly the freshest broccoli we've had on this island. Serves both local and western food. Great french fries if that's what you want. Doesn't open for dinner. Nice to be on the beach front and in the shade. Good selection of drinks and ice cream too.

We visited Beach Cafe for a late lunch. And I have to say, it was some of the best food we had during our stay in Penang - without exception, everything we ordered was cooked to perfection. And not just that, they were presented really well too. Not just pleasing to the palate, but pleasing for the eye as well... More

A small beach cafe accessible down the street opposite McDonalds perched on the edge of the beach. Just six tables on a concrete slab serving a variety of western and Chinese dishes. Fried rice and sizzling prawns are highly recommended washed down with fresh coconut or a lime juice. While eating watch people parasailing on the beach in front of... More

If you are staying at the Lone Pine or Golden Sands this is a particularly convenient spot to grab a quick, easy and cheap lunch. The food is simple, good quality and the owners are friendly thus the all round experience is great.

The beach setting of the Café is very relaxing. Combine that with a good choice of food selections to enjoy you would be hard pleased not to be rested.

Firstly I should probably say that the Tripadvisor map is wrong. This place is much further up the beach than where the map says it is... unless I am reviewing the wrong place, but I'm not... unless there are 2 beach cafes that look the same and serve identical food... Anyway, we stopped for lunch at the Beach Cafe, not... More

Great little spot for lunch right on the beach, in front of Lone Pine Hotel. Lovely food, would recommend the mango chicken with fried rice. Lovely fresh juice too. The decor is simple but great value for money. The owner/staff are very friendly, great service. Would highly recommend.
