    Moody Cow CafeNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Moody Cow Cafe has been voted as one of the best places to have a slice (or a whole block) of cake in Penang. They're also incredibly famous for their rather rude and unpleasant attitude towards the customers, which makes people think, "are they actually following the term 'moody cow'?". Having said that, their cakes are an absolute treat, where each slice is huge and well packed with flavour. Occasionally, they also invite new cakes that have not been tried out before, like the Century Egg Cake, which is so weird. Oh, it is also fairly expensive as the minimum is average RM21 per slice.

    Tips

    Be patient - be very patient.

    Things to expect

    Awesome selection of cakes with moody waiters.

    Best with

    Coffee.

    RM20.00 to RM300.00

    The Twelve Cups

    The Twelve Cups is a fairly cozy cafe that is brightly lit. Inside, you'll find the standard set of tables and chairs, and a counter filled with delectable cakes. Having said that, they only sell mille crepe cakes, which by the way, are incredibly delicious. Each cake has thin layers of crepe stacked upon one another and filled with a thin layer of cream in between. Cutting through them is not only easy, but somewhat satisfying as well. Flavour wise, no worries there! 

    Tips

    Free wifi and water. Cash only.

    Things to expect

    A fairly Japanese feeling cafe with an abundance of natural light and awesome service.

    Best with

    Coffee.

    Price

    Kopi C Café at ChinaHouse @ Lebuh Pantai

    ChinaHouse is another great place to enjoy a wide range of cakes. The best part about it is when you step in the cafe, you'll be greeted by a table filled with cakes and pastries, all nicely presented for you to choose. With several unique favourites like the passionfruit with coconut butter, carrot walnut and double chocolate, it can be easy to lose track of what you'll want and order everything, then regretting everything the day after. 

    Tips

    Do come early if you wish to try all the signature cakes.

    Things to expect

    A heritage venue with tight spacing but awesome cakes.

    Best with

    Coffee.

    Macallum Connoisseurs has been a great place for many of the younger generation to work and play. Not only is the venue incredibly huge, it's also packed with tables and chairs, with some of them having its own power outlet. Coffee is quite good, and the cakes are a great pair as well. Just ask what is the recommended cake of the day and enjoy.

    Huey & Wah CafeNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Cakes are fairly limited here at Huey & Wah, but when there is, you can expect it to be good and absolutely addictive. This cafe is pretty modern on the inside, but looks fairly plain and boring from the shopfront. Inside, you'll find the ground level to be fairly tight, but there is a mezzanine floor in which you can enjoy slices of cake in silence and peace. After all, each slice is rich and creamy, so shoving 3-4 slices may seem inhumane.

    Tips

    Cash only.

    Things to expect

    Bright and cozy place.
