Hi there friends! Are you somewhat already bored by the same old cafes or restaurants that you’re visiting in Penang? Since we all have this innate love for new things, we’ve created a list of 8 New Things To Try In Penang before we bid farewell to August. So, when you’re ready to visit new spots, just scroll over!
1. Kin Coffeebar
When weekend greets us, somehow we will have the idea of visiting a cafe and just chill out. If you love doing exactly that, then Kin Coffeebar, a new cafe in the heart of Georgetown might just be your cup of tea (or coffee). Kin Coffeebar’s very first outlet was in Bukit Mertajam and has recently opened its second outlet here at Jalan Hutton. Simplicity is the concept here, the menu comes with 3 cake options and several beverages. The new spot boasts plenty of natural sunlight, adding an extra edge to your photos.
Address: 209, Jalan Hutton, 10050 George Town, Penang.
Operating Hours: 9 AM-6 PM (Closed on Tuesdays)
2. Brunch Cafe
The next new spot in Penang to visit this August is Brunch Cafe. Aptly named, this cafe serves a wide variety of brunch menu including Japanese rice bowls (from 5PM onwards), poke bowls and even Western food. Not only that, but their dinner menu is equally irresistible. We might have seen Korean toasts all over our feed so if you’re tempted to try them out, Brunch Cafe offers 8 types of these toasts too!

It’s undeniable that everyone loves a slice of cake and there’ll be extra credit if the cake has a unique combination of flavours too. And here’s a tip; you can find a simple cake store along Lebuh Pantai, adorably named 呱呱小铺, or its English equivalent, GuaGua’s Store. In fact, the very first outlet actually opened in Machang Bubuk and since its opening, locals have been flocking over to get a taste of their delicious cakes. It’s a tiny cafe that specialises in cakes and coffee-simple, basic and just what we need. Expect to find one-of-a-kind cake options such as Salted Egg, Passionfruit, Grapefruit, and more seasonal flavours.
