Good for: Child-friendly, Groups
Dining options: Breakfast
Description: Breakfast Bar is offering a great variety of home cooked Western Breakfast at affordable prices in a very relaxed Atmosphere. Since many guests planned their day ahead and might have appointments in order to discover the island, the Breakfast is fast and easy. During Lunch and Dinner we assume that guests are having more time, thus the menu is totally different. We even have a different cook and a different kitchen for these menues. We offer Western cuisine with Medeterranean influence at very affordable prices in a very relaxed atmosphere.

“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed 9 December 2011

Simple rustic setting with comfortable seating. In the middle of Pantai Cenang and can be missed as by the roadside with a statue of a cute bull smack at the entrance.

Service was quick, friendly and efficient. Changing items on the set menus were easy and fuss free. Changed coffee to tea tarik which was done without any additional charge and tasted great! Food was simple but tasty, as mainly catering to the Caucasian crowd, butter & jam was portion packed and of good quality.

They do serve some local fare however it is not available on Friday.

Prices are dirt cheap as the America Breakfast is RM10 / USD3 (Egg, Toast, Coffee/Tea - no juices)

“SLOW !!!”
Reviewed 8 November 2011

If you are hungry - by ALL means avoid this place, service is SLOW!!! Too crowded, not enough servers, I saw some tables take 1 hour to be clean up, no system, billing was a mess, tables are not clean, dirty plates are just being stack up & put aside. Not friendly. Mess up customers orders very often.

“Average for the Island”
Reviewed 23 October 2011

If you want better breakfast, need to get out of Pantai Chenang. We had the Breakfast Bar Breakfast, which is two fried eggs, two toast and a ham and coffee for RM10.

We ate here twice and had the American breakfast both times. Good deal, fast and correct. Don't expect much more.

“The best solution for cheap but very delicious breakfast!”
Reviewed 11 January 2011

First of all beware that you choose: The original Breakfast bar. Since there are many copycat restaurant on Langkawi but they are less good, more expensive and less experienced in serivng a perfect breakfast! The Original Breakfast bar is on Langkawi for over 15years already and i have been there very often. Everytime when i come to Langkawi i eat my breakfast at the BB because i know that it is cheap and very good and a more important fact for me is that the food comes fast and the drinks (juces) are fresh and cold which is very good after a hard night of partying or drinking. The Ambiente is very nice with wooden tabels and chairs. The tabels are not to close to eachother so you have kind of your privacy while having your breakfast. The last time that I have been there was in December 2011 during new year and it was very crowded all the time so I had to get up early to still get a tabel without waiting which shows the popularity of the breakfast bar. Even thouch it was very full the staff managed to serve everyone in a short time and the food and drinks came fast too. All in all I guess you cant find a place anywhere in Langkawi to have your breakfast that good and that cheap at the same time so i can only recoment it to everyone else. And there is not only asian food you can also choose western food such as Sandwiches or french toast....etc. They have quite a big selection of food.

As a small tipp you can even buy nice braceletts or habe a portraits of yourself at brakfastbar from a very good artist. Those can be nice souveniert or gift for a Friend or loved one.

More updates on my still growing experience of the original breakfast bar Langkawi will come after my next visit there which will hopefully be soon.

*sorry for my spelling it would look better in german but I would like to share my experience with as many people as possible so I thought that english would be the best choise of language*
