Charlie Brown Cafe @ Straits Quay, Penang
-Are you a fan of Charlie Brown comic? What about Snoopy? If you are a fan of Charlie Brown comics, you will love the newly opened at Straits Quay. Its interior decoration has everything from lights, table tops to wallpapers and most importantly they sell souvenirs of Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the gang.
I know that Charlie Brown Cafe （查里布朗咖啡馆）has become a hot topic in the town now. Located at Straits Quay, this outlet is the first of Charlie Brown Cafe in Malaysia. Surprisingly they open the first Peanuts theme cafe in Penang but not in KL. The other outlets that I know are location in Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore and China.
First of all, ordering is self service here but the food and drinks will be delivered to your table.
The cutest cheese cake you will ever see – Espresso Cheese Cake @ RM9.50
Charlie Brown Tiramisu @ RM12
Luckily the drinks are not too bad and they look really nice too.
Each cuppa comes with a different cartoon character coffee art on the foam. For example, Lucy appears on the hot Latte (RM9.50) while it is Wookstock for the Mocha (RM11) and Snoopy is on a cup of Hot Chocolate...
The type of food sold there varies from appetizers right up to desserts. You will have soups, snacks, pastas, sandwiches, pizzas to local favorites and desserts. Drink will also be various coffee to tea to the healthy drinks to shakes and sodas.
It seems many have flocked to the cafe to have a closer look and take tonnes of pictures with the well-loved Snoopy, Woodstock, Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the gang.
The cafe is huge and divided into different sections with different layouts - sofa seats, private rooms, casual rattan chairs... Overall spacious enough to maneuver buggies and for kids to run
Great place for a meet-up or a hang out but it isnt THAT awesome of a place to have dinner or lunch coz there isnt a wide variety of food for you to choose
Charlie Brown Cafe is a really really good place for avid picture takers
because its the only place in Penang with a cartoon themed restaurant.
There is also a Souvenir Corner which you to get some collectibles if you find the characters adorably charmingly cute.
Its well decorated interior with faces of the "Peanuts" family all over the place.
it was not really opened such as Starbucks or Coffee Bean franchising a lot, but it seems to be unique due to the limited stores that can be found in the world!
We can view the quay from inside the restaurant, we saw boats and seawater.
There is a separate function room for, let’s say, kiddy parties. You can watch the strip figures and their capers on tv. There cafe is spotlessly clean..
aren't you interested to know more about the Peanuts gang? If you know them well
The price that worth it is the environment and the stories behind the characters.
Charlie Brown is an example of "the great American un-success story" in that he fails in almost everything he does, a total contrast with M. Schulz's work which is referred as "the great American success story". He is meek, nervous and lacks self-confidence, being unable to fly a kite, win a baseball game or kick a football. He is almost bald, with barely a little hair in front. He is Snoopy's owner but apparently Snoopy's intelligence is way much higher than him...
Snoopy on the other hand, is known as "the world's most famous beagle". He does not look very much like a beagle, because beagle normally has tritone (tan, black and white) but Snoopy has only black and white fur. Snoopy slept on top of his doghouse rather than inside it. He seldom seen to venture inside his doghouse, except to retrieve something, or retrieve his recorder to play the national anthem of America every night before he goes to sleep...
Woodstock is the only bird that attaches himself to Snoopy. The rest of the look alike's are Woodstock's friends. In the early 60s, many migrating birds started using Snoopy's doghouse for various purposes: a rest stop during migrations, a nesting site, or a place to play cards. They simply looked at Snoopy and he understood them. Woodstock was the only one that assumed the role of Snoopy's sidekick and assistant. He's Snoopy's best friend.
Linus the best friend of Charlie Brown, also the younger brother of Lucy van Pelt and older brother of Rerun van Pelt. You might wonder why Linus always drag along a blue blanket whenever and wherever he appears, that's actually his "security blanket". He holds the blanket over his shoulder while sucking his thumb.
Lucy She is the main bully and the older sister of Linus and Rerun. A bossy, crabby and selfish eight-year old girl, Lucy often bullies the other characters in the strip, particularly her own brother Linus and Charlie Brown. But I always think Charlie Brown has some crush on her while Charlie Brown's younger sister Sally has love interest on Linus.
Sally Brown ,Charlie's younger sister and has blonde hair with a curly fringe. She wears pigtails, pink or blue polka dotted dresses with matching colored socks and she also wears white shoes with black laces. She can be stubborn at times, and is usually convinced she's right until someone proves her wrong, but she also has a good heart and a strong moral sense, just like her brother.
