Deep in a quiet alley of Georgetown, you will need the aid of navigation system or local expert in order to locate this cafe. Atas Cafe is easily recognized from its bright blue facade, step in the cafe and you will find yourself in a snug but cozy space. It preserves the characteristics and architecture of the old Penang heritage houses, with simple-minor touch ups. The walls are painted in blue but the space is made warm with the hanging light bulbs emitting yellow light. The place is also made livelier with indoor plants; the whole place feels very comfortable and suitable for casual meet ups. The menu on the other hand, seems to be on the weaker side... only a couple food mains and some snack choices, with some cakes.
Lettuce, Avocado and Mango Salad (Rm 18)
Avocado Lime Cheesecake (Rm 15)
The Lettuce, Avocado and Mango Salad would fit for our tea-snack. As much as we enjoy the freshness of the combo between Lettuce, Avocado and Mango, we were disappointed with the saccharine sweet Salad dressing. The sweetness literally killed the Salad and it was my first encounter that my Salad being sweeter than the dessert.
Avocado lovers would be excited to know that Atas Cafe serves Avocado Lime Cheesecake, a piece of creamy creation with a hint of Avocado and nutty crumbs from the Cookie base. Before you put it in the mouth, the first thing that hits you would be the fresh, citrusy Lime followed by a soothing acidity and creaminess. The Avocado was rather subtle though. Not too shabby for a change.
