Top 10 Superb Big Breakfast in Penang

Best BIG breakfast for you!

When life gives you lemons, make the lemonade. When the fridge gives you eggs, find the sausages, fry the bacon, butter that bread and HAVE THE BEST BIG BREAKFAST you’ve been always drooling about and frankly if I had a choice between dinner and lunch together or just Big Breakfast all day, you probably know what the answer already based on the topic I’m salivating upon. Just in case someone forgot how irresistible an image of a BIG BREAKFAST can afford to look like ?

Half a third of Instagram shots tagging Wheeler Coffee consist of Big Breakfast more than Cofee or Wheels, ironically! Nestled among cafes in Love Lane, Wheeler’s coffee is that one cafe to stop by if you’re unfamiliar with the environment and doubting the quality of food. Though I personally haven’t tried the Big Breakfast (Go try!! Worth every penny,.Less than 25 bucks), their Matcha Lava Cake is the next best thing in the world. No kidding!

3. Tasty Toasty

Tasty Toasty provides Big Breakfast that would go well with a cup of coffee. And they don’t stop there! Long before the rise of artisan European bread, local Toasts were staples for any working class in Penang; the locals’ favorite way of enjoying a crisp-fluffy toast would be none other than Kaya Butter Toast with soft-boiled Eggs. Basically your local Kopitiam with an edge.

4. Daily Dose

Google ‘Big Breakfast in Penang’ and this would be the first option shown. Located at the Steward Lane on a morning as tourists head out as early as a bird to explore and locals tucked in their sleep on Sundays, you’d be lucky to find an empty table at 9 am here. Aside from serving the Big Breakfast, which one shall expect nothing but the best with a bit twist to it (chickpeas),  the cafe offers a twist of taste to cafe hoppers by featuring Sarawak Kolo Mee. Unconventional is good.
