Sit back and relax at The Alley Penang

Went to The Alley on last Thursday. The first thing that I'm concerned with is the parking. I found a parking without yellow box so is illegal anyway. >< I was worried to see my car got clamped, saman issued or scratched by anonymous! Fortunately, is all ok by then. 

Back to The Alley Penang. It will be hard to discover when you drive through the street. No worries, I will give you a better picture of the location at the end of the post. 

The reason why is hard for you to locate the cafe because the shop originally named Kedai Gaharu Keat Seang. So try to figured out Kedai Gaharu Keat Seang 吉祥香庄 when you pass by. 


There you go for the shop signage - The Alley, 5 Stewart Lane. 



A very comfy place where I spent my afternoon there doing assignment and stuffs. Catching up with the staffs as well. They are really courteous and friendly person. People who have been there knows it well. :-)



Pestle Mortar Clothing has a pop-up store in The Alley. Check out their Facebook page to know better about this clothing label. 



Well execute menu board!

By the way, mentioning about their menu, they are famous for their churros, cronuts and  affogato! So make sure you don't miss them out when you drop by the cafe.

If you don't wish to have coffee at night, you may order their frappe as well namely Choc Mint Frappe, Pinky Guava Frappe, Choc Orea Frappe for the Oreo's lover and so on!


Homemade cheesecake! They will change their cake menu regularly to ensure customers get to try out different cake each and every week.


Fyi, their affogato served with Haagen Dazs vanilla ice cream which I think is a plus point for their signature coffee.



More sofa seats at the back. Friends who come in a group prefer to chill out in this area.


Signature photo shooting area. Lol..


Affogato with Haagen Dazs Ice Cream RM15

Back then, I don't like to drink cold coffee because I thought when the ice cube melted, the texture of the coffee is not the same as before. Recently, I realized affogato settled all my worries at once. I can have cold coffee yet the smooth and rich texture of espresso stays. Feel so sorry to myself that I just figured it out. :p


Heard rave reviews about their affogato, indeed I think that it is so far the best in town. 


If you never try affogato before, I would highly recommend you to have this when you visit here.


Lemon Cheese RM10

I would say this is a decent one. Wouldn't say it is extremely delicious but if you top it with oreo crumble, the mixture of sweet and sourness would be so much enlighten on the taste.


Cappuccino RM9

It is slightly bitter for my liking. Anyway, feel free to request for brown sugar at the counter. They served it with our childhood tidbit 贡糖. *I have no idea what is it called in English, lol..couldn't get the translate in the web* 


A pleasant afternoon spent in The Alley.



Everyone knows Kuan Yim Temple along Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling right? Turn into Jalan Stewart from Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling. Then The Alley will be on your left. Don't go too takes around 100m away from the junction. :-)


Quickly head to The Alley with your family and friends cz they open from 12 p.m. to 12 a.m. midnight! Cater those night owl needs. Lol..

The staff from The Alley will be happy to see you there!
