1. Roti Canai Transfer Road
Everyone who is a foodie would know about Roti Canai Transfer Road. It’s almost a sin to not have breakfast here at least once when you’re in Penang. Known for its crunchy and soft roti canai served with ¼ of chicken and chicken curry, it’s definitely a breakfast meal one would remember forever. They also have roti canai with oozing egg on top. This place gets a full mark from us and you will agree with us too once you’ve tried their meal.

2. Roti Canai Gemas Road
Another good breakfast place in Penang that serves unique roti canai menu is Roti Canai Gemas Road.

Not only that, but you can also choose to have it topped with a sunny-side egg, cheese and onion.

3. Let’s Meat
If you’re looking for something a little western and a little meatier, Let’s Meat is the place to be when you’re in Penang. More importantly, we definitely suggest you try their pulled pork burger. We mean, there’s no reason not to have burgers for breakfast.
Location: 18, Lebuh Lembah Permai 4, Tanjung Tokong, 11200 Tanjung Bungah
4. Toh Soon Café
For something a little simpler, head to Toh Soon Café that is well known for their crispy toast and coffee. Don’t underestimate this place. Just because it’s located at a small back alley doesn’t mean it’s food is less than satisfying. Whether you like toasts with kaya and butter or you like it topped with runny eggs, Toh Soon Café has got you covered – just prepare to line up in the morning. We personally recommend that you try their charcoal toasted bread with butter and kaya served with a side of the half-boiled egg.
