Great Coffee in George Town, Penang
Updated: Dec 30, 2019
Do you need your coffee to start your day? Is coffee the sweet nectar that energizes when you are tired? ☕☕☕
However, one problem with George Town is that it's hard to find parking. 🚗🚗😫
That's why we compiled this list of coffee places that you can drive-thru with DROP. 😎🚗☕
Bricklin Cafe Bar
They serve really good coffee, it's so simple yet it makes people want more. We recommend getting their Latte (RM11), Flat White and their Cold Brew (Rasta Brew Coffee) ☕
Also, the espresso is perfectly extracted to give you just the right kick. The Latte and Cappuccino foam is smooth and creamy.
It's difficult to find good parking space around Jalan Gurdwara, use DROP as to take away Bricklin Coffee. 🚗☕
Address: 31A, Jalan Gurdwara, 10300 George Town, Pulau Pinang. Operating Hours: 9 AM – 7 PM except for Tuesdays
If you live in Penang, you probably know Macallum Connoisseurs. It's the biggest cafe in Penang. It's just not a cafe, Macallum is also a coffee academy. You know they are good, if they teach coffee.
What you would love from Macallum is their Long Black (RM9.50/RM10.60), it's just espresso and water, no sugar nor milk. And yet, people love their Long Black, they do it in a way that it's not just another cup of pure unadulterated coffee.
Additionally, order their Latte (RM11.70/RM12.70), it's aromatic with a hint of caramelisation at the end. It's not too robust and acidic.
Address: 1, Gat Lebuh Macallum, George Town, 10300 George Town, Pulau Pinang
Operating Hours: 9 AM - 12 AM Daily
Located on the busy Beach Street, Black Kettle is a popular pit stop for both locals and tourists. ☕
If you need a pick me up around the Commercial Business District around Beach Street. Their Long Black, Latte, Espresso, Piccolo Latte and the Cappuccino is what you need.
Our favourite is the Aussie Iced Latte (RM19.10), prepared with espresso, blended ice, milk and Vanilla Ice Cream. It's so smooth!
Order ahead and drive-thru with DROP for some Black Kettle Coffee!

We have a soft spot for Lunabar Cafe. It's adorable cafe nestled between a row of houses along Jalan Clove Hall.
Our favourite coffee from them is their Matcha Latte (RM12), it's a good mixture of bitter and sweet. All their espresso coffees are so smooth and light, it does not overwhelm you.
Address: 12, Jalan Clove Hall, George Town, 10050 George Town, Pulau Pinang

Located in Jalan Green Lane, it's the favourite coffee place for SEGI Students and working professionals. This is the perfect place to get your morning coffee and perhaps a panini to fuel your day.
We recommend getting their Latte, Cappuccino and Melbourne Iced Coffee (RM7 - RM12.50). We also can't understate their Paninis (RM13).
Address: 52, Jalan Green Hall, George Town, 10200 George Town, Pulau Pinang

Coffee Cave Cafe by Toh Soon 多春茶室
Most people have heard of the famous Toh Soon Cafe by Campbell Street, the family who runs Toh Soon decide to open a modern style cafe. But fear not, you'll still get the delicious kaya butter toast with half-boiled eggs which is perfect with their coffee from Toh Soon. Get their Kopi and Hainanese Toast (RM2.50 & RM4.50).
