This refurbished heritage shophouse located in Penang’s Chinatown along Campbell Street has everything. It’s home to a cafe and a stationery store (Writer Store) offering an expansive range from notable brands like Midori, Traveler’s Notebook, Leuchtturm1917 and more.
It also contains a selection from local clothing designer Dennie Yeap’s label, and even houses a host of minimalist Airbnb rooms named after famous contemporary writers. The high-ceilinged skylight also provides good lighting for photo ops at any corner of the aesthetically pleasing shop.
It’s the all-encompassing spot for travellers looking for a momentary pause during their Penang trip: check-in to a room, enjoy a cuppa, and stock up on journalling materials to remember this trip with.
