Highest Cafe in Penang, Kopi Hutan

Guys, meet the highest cafe in Penang, Kopi Hutan. Tucked away in Penang famous tourist spot, Monkey Cup Garden at Penang Hill. A new cafe managed by Monkey Cup Garden. Kopi Hutan is about 730 meters above sea level, according to the owner, which so happens to be the highest cafe in Penang. Kopi refers to coffee and Hutan refers to the forest in malay. Well, expect yourself to be surrounded with lots of trees and enjoy great foods here.

Relax and unwind with a pot of pleasant Arabica coffee, home-baked cakes and finger foods, bread stick & tapioca crackers. I personally loved the coffee here RM8/pax, top quality coffee beans from 5 different countries, roasted them perfectly and created distinct aromas. For cakes RM12 each, we ordered peach cheesecake and chocolate mousse cake, the base biscuits were crunchy and tasty, I love it! The cakes were done just right without it overly sweet. As for snacks RM2/each, bread stick will definitely bring back your childhood memories and tapioca crackers were a little too salty to my taste-buds.

Chocolate Lava Cake RM12, this thing is beautiful, isn’t? It comes with adorable monkey cup art designed with chocolate powder, garnished with strawberry and Vanilla cream. Wow! the cake was delicious, crispy on the surface and delightful hot chocolate melted inside. Its winning formulas was home-baked, I suppose.

Don’t leave without visiting Monkey Cup Garden. The entrance fees are RM12 for adults and RM6 for kids. The garden has a collection of various Nephentes (Monkey Cup) species cultivated in a beautifully designed mossy garden at the right environment. There are original as well as hybrid species from Malaysia, Indonesia, India, The Philippines, and other countries. There will be a dedicated tour guide explain and show you around the garden. Though you can still dine at the Kopi Hutan Cafe without paying entrance fees to Monkey Cup Garden, it’s worth a trek in my opinion.
