Arts and crafts PenangChai Diam Ma Cafe is a rare find, a cafe that looks like a hippie hangout, but is also an arts and crafts gallery, supporting local artists.

You can’t miss the cafe, housed in a pre-war house on Lebuh Queen, with its psychedelic walls and plenty of plants and greenery. Inside, the whitewashed wooden beamed ceiling, blue walls and the eclectic choice of furniture give the interior a definite “shabby chic” feeling.

Chai Diam Ma has a small menu. For those looking for meat free, they do have two vegetarian udon noodle dishes served with either mushrooms or garlic and bell peppers. However, what is appealing are the most delicious and healthy sounding juices. Made from 100% fresh fruit and sugar free, choose from lemon basil, lime mint, watermelon dragonfruit and carrot ginger among others.

The lime mint was quite tart and a little bitter, but the syrup given on the side sweetens it if needed.
