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.

Weekend again! We decided to date each other again, along Beach Street for tea time. I heard my friends talking about this Twelve Cups but we have never been able to find time to go. To cut the story short. We came!
What impresses me most is the overall environment, is just LOVELY. Since is Tea, we each order a crepe and shared a cup of smoothie.
