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.
Green Tea Crepe Cake (RM13.50)
We decided to go for the crepe and cake instead of the macarons. The green tea crepe cake has a heavy spread of vanilla cream instead of green tea. It would have been perfect if more green tea powder was added with the right portion.
Hummungbird Cake (RM15.50)
A mixture of banana, carrot and nuts cake recommended by the staff. The moist of the cake was simply perfect, but like the green tea crepe, it would have taste richer if there were more banana or carrot or nuts added in the cake.It is probably personal preference when it comes to dessert, I naturally prefer to have heavier taste over the sugar icing taste. However, it was rather expensive for a slice of cake and ice-cream.
What better day to start my day with a freshly brewed coffee!
Fresh Orange + Apple Juice (RM6.50)
For non-caffeine lovers, you may want to opt for their fresh juices served in the camera lense mug. For camera lovers, you might want to consider getting the unique mug as a gift for yourself.
