Coconut Ice Cream at Busy Bodhi Cafe

Busy Bodhi Cafe at Lebuh Acheh, Penang

After visiting the Leong San Tong Khoo Kongsi (邱公司), we saw this small and cozy looking Busy Bodhi Cafe opposite the road. Feeling thirsty, we decided to take a rest here before continue our adventure in Penang. I guess the name comes from the word busybody? But it might also be named after the Bodhi Tree, since there is a tree that looks like the Bodhi Tree right inside the cafe. I quite like this cafe so here is the blog about it.

Only the chair and the cup are real. The child itself is a drawing. Rumours has it that until today, he is still trying to reach the cup.
