    This kopitiam is on the recommended lists of several foodie socmed platforms. Hor ka sai was thick 👍🏻. However, the soft boiled eggs turned out to be hard boiled egg yolks. Kaya butter toast was ok, you can opt for steamed bread version also. Crew recommended char koay teow which was average, a little lacking on wok hei, though they scored brownie points for bigger than average prawns. Was told that the CKT here does not have chinese sausage. Another famous kopitiam, Bee Wah, is just a few doors away.

    A very old school type of coffeeshop. According to the auntie they have moved here from another location for 6mths already.Ordered the toast with Butter and Kaya and toast with butter and half boil eggs on top. The toast are very well done, very crispy as though it's deep fried snack but it's not.Hainan coffee is a must to order, very fragrant.Service is 10/10, the auntie speaks very good english and their menu comes in english as well.There is option for CKT as well but didnt try hence can't comment on the taste.Come support these traditional coffesshops that's part of our culture.

    During my recent trip to George Town, I had breakfast at Kong Thai Lai Coffee Shop. While the food and coffee were decent, I wouldn't say they were exceptional.The breakfast was budget-friendly, which was a plus. However, the taste of the food was just average. It was satisfying enough to fill me up, but I didn't find myself craving more.Despite the average quality of the food and coffee, I did appreciate the quaint atmosphere of the coffee shop. It had an old-world charm that added to the overall experience.
