Toh Soon Cafe 多春茶座 @ Campbell Street, Penang

by Taufulou

One of the place that me and my friends had been talking for ages is to come to this very old classic for breakfast. It was on the long weekend when I was back to Penang and I got drag by a few of them to hunt for this place and finally we are here. Toh Soon Cafe operates in a small ally at Campbell Street that this place is one of a favourite hang out place during my grandparents time.

Toh Soon (1)

It was those good old times whereby you can see alot of people sitting here enjoying their coffee while reading newspaper as this place serve Hainanese breakfast, that operate by an old couple.

Toh Soon (2)

Cannot deny that this place is pretty well known now by many people, thanks to blog and Facebook had sligltly popularize this place. AS it is long weekend, definately you will see alot of tourist in this cafe.

Please do have patients in this cafe while waiting for your toast and coffee as it is handle by these old couple and help of friends.

Many people came here just for the classic breakfast, which is toast, steam bread, half boil egg with coffee.

Keke, you will never get to see this super classic toaster, that is modified from oil barrel burn with charcoal at the bottom as at the deepest level, there is where your bread are toast and head further up, there is where your hot water is being boiled. 2 in 1.

Toh Soon Singature drink, Kopi  . .. Not so bitter compare to the others, slightly robust in coffee and I always prefer mine with milk. My friend ended up having 2 glass of this.

I still prefer mine in hot for breakfast.

another signature here I would say is their steam bun. Its soft near to cotton that spread with simple kaya and butter. Definitely they are more generous in their ingredients compare to any franchise chain.

To eat it in more classic, I usually will dip it into my kopi as taught by my grandfather. To be even more classic, you can pour your coffee onto the base plate and drink it from there.

Toast bread range:

This is one of a unique one as the bread had slight chocolate taste and toast then spread with kaya and butter. Nice.

so this is how I enjoy my simple classic breakfast over the morning. Just perfect. Nothing much to shout about as only one thing that you must not miss is their steam bread. Loving it.

Parking here can be  a pain in the ass as its very limited. Therefore you can try  Lorong Kampung Malabar (next to Lebuh Campbell) where there’s a lot of parking always available and just walk into the lane only about 50m away.

I’ve been there once and the place has very bad service. Well can’t blame them as there were only 2 senior citizens and a young girl managing the place during that time. If I were to revisit, I’d probably go there on a weekday 🙂
