Le (乐) Cafe @ Bricklin Road, Georgetown, Penang.

Not too sure if it meant to be a hipster spot, Le Cafe does not have a big and clear signage, there's a small one at the side door (smaller than its window) though. It occupies a corner lot at Bricklin Road, a stone's throw distance away from the no-through road of Jalan Tye Kee Yoon and GAMA Supermarket. The interior decor is minimalist with a little industrial finishing, at the end of the cafe is a comfortable space most suitable for hipster-portraiture shots. Le offers a small Toast-focused menu in the mornings and snacks with alcohols for the rest of the days. In the evenings, visitors may opt to chill out at the al-fresco alley right next to the cafe. It may be a fun place to hangout or for a cup of drinks but we thought the food menu was a little less-exciting...

"Goo" Toast (Rm 15.90) + Juice (Rm 5)

Banana Chiffon Cake with Ice Cream (Rm 7.90)

There are only 2 types of savory Toasts available at Le, one being Chicken while the other one is Beef. We waited quite a while for the Beef Toast, it was merely processed Beef Burger Patty with Cheese, Japanese rolled Omelette, Cabbage and sauce, sandwiched using 2 buttered Toast. We thought the combination was a lackluster and insincere, we would definitely prefer home-made ones over processed patties. The Banana Chiffon Cake with Ice Cream was the special of the day, it was lightly drizzled with Honey and topped with a slice of Lemon. The taste was pretty predictable but a safe combination that will never go wrong.

  1. Yes, we have a cafe here by that same name and I thought it was some French name but it turned out to be like this one in your post:

  2. This place is so cool and chic after a good makeover. Their menu is light and easy food. It that a tourist place?

  3. Love those pictures on the wall, very colourful.

  4. This is very interesting to see the Banana Chiffon cake being served this way. Delicious.

  5. What they drizzled on that chiffon cake and made it sit on "syrup"? >_<
