Cafe G Seventies (70's)- The Backyard @ Hutton Lane, Georgetown, Penang.

Nagore Road area is surely one of the most cafe-concentrated districts in Penang- with near to 10 cafes nearby and the number is still increasing. Visiting a cafe is fun and it has always been so; question is... what's so special about this particular cafe? For the very first time, the cafe prohibits customers from entering via the main entrance and instead, they are invited to enter the entrance next to a small, narrow alley. But the divergent was worth it; open the door and you will be welcomed by a well-designed, snug and laid-back cafe in shades of wooden beam, exuding a pleasant sense of tranquility. Comfortable couches and clean, sturdy long tables are available; though aced well in terms of interior decor, we thought their menu was somewhat less-exciting. Apart from the conventional cafe-fare, we noticed some familiar cakes in which we believed they were outsourced from a renowned cake house at Butterworth. A comfortable place especially suitable for reading. Note that Cafe G Seventies' entrance is at Nagore Road, right next to the alley beside La Mei Zhi Steamboat.


We were not thrilled to order any other cakes but Lychee Rose Mascarpone Mousse (Rm 14) was particularly attractive and eye-catchy. Light, clean Mascarpone Mousse sandwiching Lychee shielded with a Rose-infused layer of jelly-like substance. It was not saccharine sweet and the mellow floral Rose flavor seeps out like a harmonized melody; best to go with a cup of Jasmine Green Tea. The cakes from this particular cake house never fails to disappoint but the ubiquitous presence in many cafes makes the cakes less-inspiring; it shows that the cafe's selection of food lacks of personalities either.
