10 Cafes to Visit in Penang #2

Times flies and I just realized it had been a year since I last compiled the list of cafes worth visiting!
If you haven't, check out Part 1 here.
Let me stress this again, when I say 'worth visiting', the food is good and the price is reasonable.
I'm not a fan of pretty cafes where I can take thousands of selfies
but the food sucks and burns a hole in my pocket.
So here are another 10 cafes you should visit, they are not the latest ones though cause
there are just too many of them, I have lost track and I have no time to check them out so yea here goes:

Spaghetti al Amatriciana [RM15.90]
Cappucino [RM9]
Soul Cafe is the one that I would go back again and again for their pasta, coffee and friendly staff.
They offer a good selection of pasta with generous amount of everything(BACON!) at a very reasonable price.
The cafe also exhibits series of photographs featuring different photographer every month.
Opens Monday to Saturday 11am - 11pm
Closed on Sunday

12, Jalan Kek Chuan 10400 Georgetown Penang

Almond Salted Caramel Crepe Cake [RM13] | Cafe Latte [RM10]
Brick walls, light bulbs, a book with indie music, nothing could go wrong with those.
Offering good coffee which includes red latte and cold brew, one could go crazy by
just looking at their delicious crepe cakes and tarts!
Located inside the happening art depot, drop by this pretty place for a sip after appreciating some art pieces
or simply enjoy your quiet afternoon here with Kinfolk magazine while people-watching.

3. Sekeping Victoria, Victoria Street
Scribbles on aged and cracked walls, couches made of steel and tall, skinny trees.
Cafe on the first floor and breakfast&bed on the second floor,

Nevertheless, they have some paleo inspired dishes, burgers and
handmade sandwiches which I haven't tried but looked absolutely delicious.

Beef Rendang Sandwich [RM16.50]
Another cafe that I have been coming back again and again for their really good food.

7. Sugar Honey, Campbell Street
Cappucino [RM8.90]
Big Brunch [RM19.90]
Vintage tiles, lamps and beam of sunlight, this place gave most people the wrong impression of only serving dessert
for its sweet name. Absolutely love their coffee presentation and surprised to find the have a wide selection of food
from waffles to sandwiches and fried rice. Most importantly, the price is very affordable!
