Post Cafe~

Have you ever imagine what is the feeling to dine in a post office and send out ur memory in the cafe with a postcard? well there is a cafe in Penang which provide this service, hehehe.... feel curious about this cafe so i decided to try it out. 

Penang got a lot of unique cafe recently ya haha, read a lot from blogs and someday, i found an interesting cafe from my favorite blog 蓝天白云数格子 about a cafe with the post office as the theme. Wow, something new to me, and i saw the decoration in the cafe was really beautiful. So i went there last Sunday with my family for a family day. It is located in Jalan Perak, not really hard to find becoz it just located at the road side with a very special outlook haha. 

Oh ya, forgot to mention that Post Cafe is a western cuisine cafe which they serve spaghetti, burgers, chicken chop and fish and chips.~ hehe i love burgers haha. And dont worry Post Cafe is an air-conditioned cafe. 

The outlook of Post Cafe, just look like the old style of post office huh haha. There was a lot of parking lot around and so no trouble for it haha. With Lunch set hehe

it is easily recognized becoz of this signboard. So don miss out the signboard for the post cafe. It is located at the roadside of the Jalan Perak. 

The entrance of the cafe was really interesting and caught my attention. Besides the photos from the customers, there were some mail boxes on the wall, with different month. Well it is actually a post service in the cafe, if we spend more than RM50 in the cafe, we can have a free postcard service and post it to the address that we wrote down and we can choose when is the date we want. There was a lot of choices from July 2013 to Feb 2014 if im not mistaken haha. Means that you can also post ur post card to ur future hehe. 

The interior view of the cafe, the red, blue and white is the main colour for the cafe hehe. 

some cute decoration on the wall. with the post office and the post office box as the theme~

Me, my brother and my grandpa, family day together~ ^^ 

A beautiful decorated corner spot, is it a private spot for dining? i think so hehe

Another view of the cafe with the photos on the wall, describing about the history of the mail box and mails. We used to mail each other in old times, yes i did, I mailed my fren Siew Siew when i was standard 6 during my school holiday, although we were living quite near to each other haha. 

I like the concept of this cafe, it really brings us the memory which we were so excited to receive a mail from frens, with full of sincere. i still remember the time I replied my frens' mails ( handwritten that time and decorated with stickers or beautiful papers haha), and waited for the postman in front of my door for my letter from frens, oh gosh that was really fun enuf. Compared to nowadays, the technology is so advanced adi and we replace the mailing system with e-mail, which is more convenient to us and not so time-consuming. Just a simple click and everything is settled. But, where is the fun and excitement then?? 

the view of the cafe with the big red mail box and the red colour bicycle~ we can see this bicycle only in the drama adi i think hehe. so special ^^

Me with the cafe~

From left bottom to right: chicken chop with spaghetti, and seafood carbonara
** I lost the receipt so i was quite uncertain about the price

Me with the burger~ I was so worried with the size becoz i ordered for the 1 layer of pork one. U know la im a big eater..But the size of the burger was just nice for me hehe. and it was tasty!! the charcoal bread was crispy and the pork was... delicious haha. 

Overall the price of the food were satisfactory, that was wat i remembered haha. we spent around RM98 for 5 ppl ( and 6 dishes in total )
