We were also quite impressed by the heat in Penang, and found the nearby Cafe 55 by Coffee Atelier open.
Hubby decided to try a Black Kim Guan Coffee (RM7, inclusive of 6% GST and 10% service charge), which was made from coffee beans roasted in the traditional Penang style. Not bad for a local coffee.
We enjoyed the relaxed and cosy atmosphere here, and the not-too-freezing air conditioning that was at the right cooling temperature. Oh, the free WiFi was wonderful too 😛
Do check out the area leading towards the restroom, where there is a small art gallery, as well as an area explaining the history of Kim Guan and coffee.
This place also serves breakfast, pastas, sandwiches, tapas, salad, and desserts. However, we were still very full from our hotel breakfast, so we did not try any food here.
