Little Joe Cafe & Grill @ Batu Ferringhi, Penang.

Little Joe Cafe & Grill is one of the few cafes in the tourist-packed area of Batu Ferringhi but that does not mean the menu is weak and the prices are inflated. On the contrary, the menu is rather interesting and the price tags are unbelievably wallet-friendly. The menu features a wide variety of Western dishes- from Big Breakfast to Sandwiches, Pizza, Grills or even desserts. Those who prefer a more casual atmosphere can opt to dine-in at the Cafe side while those who prefer a proper restaurant setting may choose otherwise; the restaurant and cafe are linked (though there are 2 entrances). Generous portion and unbeatable prices, these are probably some of the reasons why this place is popular amongst both locals and tourists. Little Joe Cafe & Grill is housed in one of the shop houses behind McDonald's Batu Ferringhi.

Big Joe Breakfast/ served with Coffee or Tea (Rm 12)

Philadelphia Steak Sandwich (Rm 16)

Cinnamon Roll (Rm 5)

Though the Big Breakfast may seem overly simple but we thought it was of good value. It has all the quintessential item (missing the Baked Beans) with complimentary Coffee or Tea; pretty straight forward, our only complain was the overly greasy Sunny Side Up (fried instead of pan-fried). We were pleasantly surprised by the portion of Philadelphia Steak Sandwich, though there were only 4 pieces of Steak, the entire portion was humongous. The Bread was beautifully toasted and the Fries were expertly executed. The meat could be more tender but it was overall, a decent order (for the fact that it was only Rm 16). For the light-eaters, go for their home-made Cinnamon Roll, the sincerity speaks for itself. They were very generous with the Cinnamon Powder and the flavor was bold, not exactly sweet but more than good enough for us.

  1. Philly steak for RM 16 is a great deal!

  2. The building needs a new coat of paint.

  3. I wouldn't mind that cinnamon roll with a coffee this morning.

  4. Price is very reasonable for a portion of breakfast like that.
