Time Out says
As the name suggests, Mess Hall offers hints of a military theme against an American white-picket look.
Mess Hall along Lebuh King makes use of its high ceilings by suspending a replica of a North American B-25 Mitchell fight plane, an ornament that has gotten people snapping away since the café started operating in November 2014. The rest of the café offers hints of the military theme against an American white-picket look – it sounds strange, but it works. Coffee here may not be super specialised (they use a dark roast blend from Italy) but stay for food items like pineapple chicken chop and the signature MH Special Grilled Chicken. Once you’re done with your food, head upstairs to the House of Yeap Chor Ee, which houses the private antique collection of the namesake Penang businessman and philanthropist.
