I actually quite like LunaBar Coffee in Penang for its ambiance. Outlook is certainly very green as it is filled with plants. It is hard for you miss it as the  most unique one. One of a cafe in Penang that you can plan to visit.

Cafe in Penang. Which is the best? I was often recommended to this Narrow Marrow located in Beach Street is one of the best cafe in Penang. It win many cafe hoppers heart of its classic ambiance, offering of fresh made Tiramisu and not to miss out their signature Tuak in Penang. 


 If you are looking for a place to chill with nice ambiance, I have to agree with many that this could be perhaps one of my favourite cafe ambiance in Penang. Taste of industrial and tastefully decorated with classic scope, mixture of black disk, and other unique antinque. love their Bar table too.DSC00811Best of all, it is also one of the best chill out spot with air condition full blast.DSC00809cafe penangcafe in penangbest cake in penangbest cafe in penangalcohol tiramisu in penangOther variety of fresh cakes available. Happy Hunting. Espresso Baileys Tiramisu is their signature @ RM 22 per piece. Worth it.
penang cafetiramisu

Their Signature Alcoholic Tiramisu. Freshly done from the kitchen. It is soft, ,moist and punch with flavour. Generous amount of cocoa powder too.

Lime Tuak is another drink which is recommended. Super refreshing and punch you with a note of sourness to my linking. Tuak after taste flavour just flows in after that. A right balance.

Little did I know that actually Penang do have good cofffee. It was a recent gathering with my friend Kevin that he introduce me die die must vist Stairs coffee which is his all time favourite now in Penang as KL visitor. Just realise that they do have alot of outlets in Penang and the first one I visited was Stairs 46Nordin at Nordin Street Penang. best cafe in penanghidden cafe in penang

Love the ambiance as it is not the usual cafe vibe that you got. It is kinda like a bit of bar & cafe combine. I believe they declare that they have the longest bar cafe table in Penang. 

As I scroll on the  menu, Kevin said no need scrool. Order his all time favourite “Dirty Latte” which he misses alot. O

Then for the first time I saw this Omakase Coffee. Usually you heard in dining and here they got it for RM 35 only. GIve it a try lo. Since cheap. Was explain carefully by the barista that you would not know which bean he is using, but with them analysing the drinker, they will then pick the beans which think suits your mood of the day

Follow by a drink that will be transform into 3 different varity in the same cup. That excites me.

I have heard alot about this new cafe Norm Micro Roastery in Penang. Been one of the buzz since after 2020 MCO last year. Since now I manage to go back, decided to pay a visit to this new brunch cafe in Penang. As This is also associated to their two other entity Norm Cafe and also Noct (pretty well known for their cocktails in Penang standard)

Parking here could be an ass as either you walk far or you pay your fee inside the parking of the new Prestige hotel. I park at open space carpark at Sri Weld Food Court Carpark and walk over. about 3 minutes walk. worth it as better than I get a ticket or got my car tow away.

Love the ambiance for Norm Micro Roastery as it certainly do have the Australian industrial factory vibe. High ceiling and best of all it is not hot in here. I am impress with the generator in here.

Raw wall and natural lighting from the top shining thru the roof indeed will be a perfect instragram cafe in Penang.

Norm Micro Roastery menu

Norm Micro Roastery menu is pretty straight forward and I am here for their coffee as for Penang standard I think they are quite there. (Please we cant compare to KL ones.)

norm cafe

Had hot latte @ RM 13 and Ice Long Black @ RM 9. Long black is the acidic version not really to my liking. Their late is not too bad as the milk is just nice yet not too overpowering or milk to cover the coffee.


Love their Mocha @ RM 13 .Thick enough with well balance of flavor.

pastries in penang

Pastries and desserts are base of the availability of the day. Among the 3 was told all of them was like “meh” again I did not try this but base on my sister’s friend that order them.

banana cake

Prawn and Pumpkin Risotto

This is their signature item. Prawn and Pumpkin Risotto @ RM 32. Stock use was perfect and cook to perfection. Moist enough yet it is not dry. Clams used were fresh and it had a good balace of flavour.

best spaghetti in penang

Was told that the Spaghetti Bolognese is the other guy’s favorite. He will try to order this whenever he is here.

chicken burger

Chicken Karage Burger @ RM 25. Very generous piece of Chicken karage. I mean it is really huge. For girls, I would advise you to share. Chicken karage nicely fry up. Slight crips outside and with a multi tower fresh fried wedges. brunch in penangI guess if you are looking for a best cafe in Penang? I guess this might be one of them to try out and perhaps to put into your list then. I certainly do not mind to come back here for their coffee and food again next round.

Among so many cafe popping out in Penang, I find this new concept Cafe Space 262 坊 at Beach Street, Penang is indeed quite interesting. Combining the best of everyone strength under one roof. I think there are 5 different brands are house in this concept space.

[update 2.7.19 – some of my friends update me that this place got torn down. It was build illegally and against heritage rules] = sad to see but no choice la. heritage zone is quite strict on all expect. ]

Space 262 坊 (1)

This place is not hard to spot as it is just located a stone throw away from China House. Or just right behind the famous 2 kids with bicycle mural site.

Above is before, and as off 2.7.19 is below:

This is what is highly recommended by my sister @kellyBok (instagram) as the little jelly pig in the mud. The jelly pig is wobbly that give you the effect of (boink boink if you shake it). Ordered Latte here as I am lurving it. Little acidic yet with fruity end. Milk is balance well yet not overpowering. Perhaps could be one of the best coffee in my top 3 place for Penang as it suites to my palate.

The cake I think is not too bad yet not the best. just for pictorial purpose then yes. Crust is abit solid as the cake gives me the feeling like 2-3 days old. Well, still one of the best seller as most of the table ordered this.
