It was very random and was aiming for coffee after breakfast. Hit into google to find nearby cafe and AE Coffee was in the list with 4.9 google rating which is super impressive. Only then realize that they are new kid on the block. Operate since end 2022. I would now rate them one of the Best coffee or cafe in Penang is AE Coffee.
Again Ae cafe, their coffee and pastries suits to my liking
This is indeed a small cafe operating nearby Penang Road.
A cafe that is run by 1st runner up in Barista Competition. after I saw this rights behind the counter, my expectation do change higher little. was here aiming to get long black and latte ended up need to aim Single Origin.
2 pager coffee and also some pastries at the counter. all the look of it sure do look very tempting.
Look for a transparent mini menu that sits above the order tab. There is where their little special hidden menu of the day or cake of the day is available. On that day Tiramisu with Alcohol and Cheesecake(which is their signature) is on.
As we were so full, was here for coffee and the pastries were too tempting ended up with cakes and Madeline for the morning.
Madeline @ RM 3 is bake to perfection as I always love mine with the little burnt solid edges then in the middle is soft and fluffy butter cake base. This is awesomely good to pair with my single Origin. Oh miy goawd! Must intro you their Tiramisu@ RM 18. It is da bomb or one of the best I have come across in Penang. It is different version compare to the famous tiramisu Narrow Marrow
This is a style by its own, topped with nice cocoa powder, and the base is soft airy light cloud mascarpone cheese and espresso sponge at the bottom with alcohol is not too heavy yet goes well flavour by itself or best pair with their coffee.
My Single origin is Guatamela. the mild fragrant body, less acidic and the aftertaste is just amazing. medium roast kind of coffee aroma stays easily 10 mins. Best! Drink while its hot is mild fruity base yet near room temperature its like chocolaty.
Certainly this is one of my favourite cafe place in Penang for a good cuppa.
