What’s better than breakfast? Breakfast and lunch- brunch. It’s the perfect made-up word for those lazy weekends for when you’ve missed your breakfast and its too early for lunch. Check out these Best 7 Brunch Places to Check Out in Penang!
1. La France Café Boulangerie
This quiet little French Bistro is great for those days when you’re feeling fancy but are on a budget. The menu list is quite extensive here, but for brunch, we’ll make it easy for you by recommending our favourites. Get your hands on a serving of Croc’ Madame Classic.
We think brunch can’t get any better than this. They toast the wholemeal bread here to a crispy bite all the while stacking this French sandwich with pork ham, egg and cheese. It’s a hefty meal, but that’s why brunches were invented right?
Address: 3B, Jalan Irrawaddi, Pulau Tikus, 10050 George Town, Pulau Pinang
Hours: 8.30 AM – 2.30 PM (Closed on Sunday and Monday)
2. The Black Market
We think they named this cute and rustic café The Black Market because the food is so good here- it should be illegal! Serving up a western menu, we recommend the Spaghetti with Beef Meatballs for a hearty brunch.
The juicy homemade meatballs are made fresh every day and are huge! They pair well with the quick toss pasta that’s made with a red sauce and sprinkled with mozzarella cheese. Cheesy, meaty- pasta. What’s not to love?
Address: 36A, Jalan Chow Thye, 10050 George Town, Pulau Pinang
Hours: 12.00 PM – 10.00 PM
3. huey&wah café
Known more famously for their gourmet marshmallow inventions, this café also serves up a really good brunch option. Get the Power House for a fuel packed meal that will leave you full until dinner.
This dish plates up a bed of cut up toasted bread that’s topped with two soft boil eggs with the creamiest runny yolk. That’s not the end of it- you’ll also get a healthy handful of toasted almond slivers, roasted tomatoes and a herb mix that’s just lovely.
We guarantee you’ll clean your plate!
Address: 368-1-03, Bellisa Row, Jalan Burma, 10350 George Town, Pulau Pinang
Hours: 8.00 AM – 6.30 PM
4. Mandarin café
No matter what time of day it is, this café is always full. Although this might be a pet peeve for some, there’s a good reason for the long line at the Mandarin café! This cosy kopitiam café is a local favourite. It is also one of the famous brunch spot in Penang.
People come in throngs here for the saucy Char Kuey Teow. The noodles here are packed with shellfish, prawns, squids and eggs at less than RM 5 a plate! Get an Oyster Omelette for sides- it’s perfect for sharing.
Address: 1 N, Lorong Delima 3, Taman Island Glades, 11700 Gelugor, Pulau Pinang
Hours: 6.30 AM – 3.00 PM
5. Meraki Coffee Penang
If you’re craving a tall stack of pancakes for brunch, Meraki Coffee is the place to be. While you could get the original serving, where’s the fun in that? We recommend you get the Earl Grey Pancake for a brunch experience unlike any other.
The small specks of the high-quality tea leaves create a blooming of flavours each time those little dots hit your tongue. And what better is that they douse your dish in maple syrup- always a plus point when pancakes are concerned.
Don’t miss out on the Cempedak Cake. We hear it’s the real deal!
Address: G-12, Island Plaza, 118, Jalan Tanjung Tokong, Seri Tanjung Pinang, 10470 Penang
Hours: 8.00 AM – 11.00 PM
6. Urban Daybreak
This brunch spot serves up healthy meals at a great price. We think their thick slices of French Toast are a must-have while you’re here. The little sprinkle of cinnamon provides the perfect flavour complexity to this familiar dish. They’re also known for their Chicken Waffle Sandwiches. This savoury dish will leave you full!
Address: 338, Lebuh Pantai, George Town, 10300 George Town, Pulau Pinang
Hours: 7.30 AM – 5.30 PM (Closed on Tuesday)
7. Secawan’ n’ Such
This rustic café serves up a mix and match menu that will make you drool. They’re known best for their Eggs Benedict- the hallmark of brunch meals. The dish consists of an open-faced sandwich of two halves of a toasted English muffin topped with a poached egg and hollandaise sauce that’s to die for.
Pair this dish with their noteworthy Smoked Duck Pasta- you’ll have ordered the perfect brunch.
Address: 205, Jalan Hutton, 10050 George Town, Pulau Pinang
Hours: 8.00 AM – 5.00 PM
