Plus, they provide catering services for interested individuals for functions and parties. I do advise you to visit I Love U Cafe and sample their offerings in order to get a better fit to your taste or to what you may want them to cater for your functions or parties! You can get to know them in person and enjoy the hospitality, great culture, and heritage cuisines of the Eurasian folk in Penang.


They participate in the Little Penang Street Market (under the umbrella of the Penang Arts Council founded and registered in 1954) every last Sunday of the month at the Upper Penang Road known as the Garage next to the historical Eastern & Oriental (E&O) Hotel.

To all visitors, fellow Penangites, and Malaysians do stop by the I Love U Cafe (A Hawker Center) located in Batu Ferringhi, Penang, Malaysia. It’s in the heart of Penang’s tourist center located north of the Penang Island.
