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.
Given every opportunity (& the extra space in our stomachs to gobble down some dessert), we constantly look for new eateries in Penang to try out. Among all the new quaint cafes sprouting out, Sugar Honey is newly opened, next to its neighbour with slightly more recognition, Moustache Houze. Like many other cafes located in Georgetown, it has a similar concept as many others: a touch of edginess on top of some preservation of the old. Apart from the food and drinks, they also sell some crafty items in the shop; feel free to look around because there’s no harm to your wallets doing so!
As we approached the cake display, we were greeted by a friendly lady whom we assumed to be the very owner of Sugar Honey. She kindly offered some recommendation for cake orders and mentioned that their cakes are all homemade and fresh from the oven. Some of her recommendations include their tiramisu, which contains mascarpone with alcohol and hence has a light creamy texture on top of the richness of the coffee liquer. Unfortunately, their tiramisu can only be featured after our second visit to the cafe since it wasn’t part of our order.
What we can offer, however, is a slice of their Chendol Crepe Cake. We love how they have added a touch of localisation to the original mille crepe, instead of the usual mille crepe flavours you find.
