From Dubu-Dubu Korean Urban Food and now another Korean hype hitting town is the famous Bingsu from Caffe Bene. A popular korean snack composed of ice shaving paired together with sweetened condensed milk, fruit syrup/ flavoured syrup and their famous sweetened azuki beans. Caffe Bene is located on Ground Floor of Gurney Paragon Mall, beside Edo Ramen and Ben’s. Decorated in wooden style and unique dim lights definitely sets the place to be more comfortable and relaxing.
On a hot day, one can opt to crush some ice with their famous Bingsu,quench your thirst with their dessert or drinks in the menu. Although it was a weekend, Caffe Bene try their best to keep the queue short despite the many people that they need to accommodate. Credits goes to the efficiency of the workers.
One fine day, while sauntering in Queensbay Mall, Penang, we noticed the opening of Espresso Lab, a 3-month old addition to our usual haunt. Although we have seen them burgeoning in Kuala Lumpur, this is the first outlet in Penang and we coffee lovers got tad too excited than we should be and thus decided to give it a try seeing the warm reception from fellow Penangites.
The cafe was situated in an open space on the first floor of the mall and since it is easily accessible, this is definitely a plus point for those seeking respite after a long day of shopping and in dire need of some delicious liquid caffeine. Service is prompt as we would collect our own coffee after payment, so those looking for a quick wake-me-up will also benefit from some speedy coffee on the go. The layout of the cafe is clean and minimalistic, enhancing our opinion about its no-frills, serious attitude towards coffee. We would say that the coffee definitely deserves mention, though that the cakes are so-so. Nonetheless, this could be a good tea place for those seeking to perk up with a dose of good coffee.
After looking through the no-frills coffee menu (these guys sure are serious about their coffee) and food counter comprising cakes and pies, the sweet tooth among us settled on a cappuccino and a few slices of cake.
Secawan ‘n’ such On Hutton is within walking distance from New World Park and just a few shops away from the famous House of Udang Galah situated along Hutton Lane. It primarily serves breakfast foods like pancakes, french toast and eggs benedict, not forgetting several pasta dishes which is almost a must for most cafe spots nowadays. Also, its refrigerated glass display by the cashier keeps all its cakes and desserts chilled and ready to be served in this hot Penang weather. We truly enjoyed the comfortable and cozy cafe setting in Secawan, not forgetting its thoughtful interior that leaves just enough space between tables for private conversations.
A place for your chocolate fix. Located at Gurney Paragon, level 6 overlooking the seafront of gurney. It is easily missed since it is not exactly located inside the mall, but you will be able to recognize restaurant from its tall glass windows which serves as the perfect medium of natural light for good photography.
Our first time there was in the evening and there weren’t many customers then. We visited Chocolate Passion again on a weekend and the place was quite packed this time round. We thought that this place is perfect to hang out with your friends on a chill afternoon/evening, that is if you don’t mind the noise level which can be on a high side at times, depending on your luck.
Once you enter the glass doors, you will be greeted by plates and plates of chocolate truffles and pralines. All you need to do is find a spot or empty table, place your orders at the counter and eagerly wait for your food to arrive.

BAKED CHEESE CAKE – pairing it with the sweetness of the berries, and with the soft textured cheese melting in every bite
Somewhere along the row of old shop houses in Carnavon Street lies tiny Ete Cafe. The cafe has a small signage and slightly secluded so it might be an easy miss as you are driving along the main road. The interior is relatively simple, with a touch of the old school reminiscence with wooden tables and chairs, unique paintings on the wall and the ceiling fan. Ete Cafe serves a variety of coffee, a selection of cakes and pastries.
