Looking for homemade cupcakes, macarons, sweet delicacies or brunch, La Vanille is where you should be. The cafe is located at Hutton Lane, walking distance from Secawan ‘n’ such and New World Park food court. Look for the turquoise rabbit or shop if you are having trouble looking for the shop. The coziness of the cafe was build up by the owner with a mixture of inspired culture and lifestyle thru her experiences travelling around the world. The delectable macarons from Paris was the main inspiration for her to start up La Vanille. The interior was build up with wooden furnitures and decoratives. Every single corner was specially design with its own taste and feeling. A great place for gatherings and catch up sessions.
Penang Camera Museum is known to be one of the main attraction spot in Georgetown, located at Muntri Street where the “Little Girl in Blue” mural drawn by Ernest Zacharevic is at. Launched on 31 Aug 2013 and officiated by the Penang Chief Minister in hope to create a better visualization for children in photography and eye opener for newbies. While walking thru the walls of the exhibition, one can immerse into the evolution of cameras from the eighteen century to the magic of photography in the dark room. Displaying a collection up to 1000 vintage cameras and accessories in the museum. They topped up with a toy camera corner where Disney cartoon meets vintage. What better way to end the tour with a cup of coffee and a slice of cake in their cozy setting cafe.
Double Exposure Cafe is located at the last section of the Camera Museum in Penang serving assorted cakes, cupcakes, pies and light breakfast. Double Exposure Cafe served their drinks in camera lens cup which goes very well with the overall theme. Their concept is to have a chilling area after a 30-40 mins tour around the museum with simple wooden setup. Preferably small group for gathering, as they might not be able to cater a table of 8 or more.
If you are looking for a homemade and delicious salmon steak, Ceylone House should be the place to be. So it was thru Groupon that we first heard about this place. Located at Lorong Ceylone, a road away from Secawan ‘n’ such and New World Park away from the busy roads in Georgetown city. Maintaining the classic traditional wooden windows and door reminded me of the olden generation houses back in the 80s’. Glide thru the walls with a coat of white paint and decorated flowers, the refurbished cafe looks brand new and homey. With the soothing sound of the radio FM playing while dining has definitely made us ponder on how things have slowly transform from the 80s’ to 90s. The new era of technology replacing the old and etc. Nevertheless, we both enjoyed our quiet time here.
