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.

The next new spot in Penang to visit this August is Brunch Cafe.

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.
