Edelweiss CafeEdelweiss Cafe (4 December, 2015)



Edelweiss Cafe (GPS: 5.4151, 100.33779) is a specialty cafe in the heritage enclave of Armenian Street. It is housed in a 1860's shophouse built in the early transitional style of the mid 19th century Penang. In the restoration process, the shophouse had a complete make over to return it as closely as possible to its original state. The result is a cafe that opens six days a week offering a menu of German and Swiss specialties.
