The shop is open from 7.30am till late afternoon like 5pm with reasonable price. You can go and get breakfast toast or the drink at the shop.

This is my first time visit this cafe and I found that it is very very hard to find a parking lot as that is a really crowded place with limited car park. If you would like to pay a visit you gotta park your car further and walk a bit to the shop. The food is really awesome! Me... More

I had my breakfast here. Simple and nice food. This restaurant is run by a family, u can feel the local culture and local way of preparing the food, but is a mix of HK style. Price is reasonable. Environment is clean. Food is tasty. The only difficulty is parking, u have to park your vehicle in the other street... More

Hidden gem along a busy road. Food is over average but the price is really reasonable for a good portion.

We have always wanted to try a HK-style kopitiam for its East Meets West food. We finally found Trois Canon Cafe along Campbell Street in Penang which I believe have existed for decades but little known to the locals. They have the famous HK macaroni cooked in clear/tomato based soup, pork chop bun, all sorts of toasts, egg tarts, healthy... More

Terrible service, slow and inefficient. Far behind the Hong Kong 'char chang teng' quality. Poor food quality, pork chop bun too dry, noodles overcooked, lack of seasoning. Uncomfortable environment, even outdoor temperature at 1pm also cooler than sitting inside the shop. Definitely will not go back again.

Went there during lunch hour. The service was very slow and inefficient. The food is below average and lack of seasoning. Pork chop was too dry and noodles were overcooked. Definitely not going back again.

Yesterday we had the fried rice with chicken, egg and veg which was yummy, good size portions for only 6 rm - less than 1 pound 20!! And had the big breakfast which included toast, scrambled egg, bacon and sausage plus tea or coffee for only 8 rm... More

This restaurant's concept is to offer a very cheap lunch set. Obviously for RM7 you cannot expect quality and certainly they do not serve it. Yet, the food is acceptable and match the one serve in street food stalls outside. Unlike the neighbor Chin's "boutique" cafe, the price of the meal allows to tolerate very average food. The service is... More
