The Alley @Stewart Lane, Penang – Coffee and Desserts

BY CK Lam

If you are looking for a cafe to spice up your coffee break, you can do just that by paying a visit to The Alley. Located on Stewart Lane in George Town, Penang, this cafe with a casual setting occupied a previous corner shop selling praying incense.

The short menu is rather simple given the tiny size of the kitchen. You can expect cold and hot beverages alongside an array of made-in-house desserts.

You can sip a pretty cup of coffee made using the Sanremo machine.  Aside from the list of hot coffee drinks, the cafe also offers refreshing cold brew, ice mocha, chocolate mint frappe, ice black coffee and mocha frappe.

The black coffee is aromatic and leaves a pleasant after taste.

A perfect warm and cold choice to pick up at The Alley is the affogato. Made with espresso, Haagen-Dazs vanilla ice-cream and chocolate topping, this coffee based dessert has become one of my favorites.

The Alley has its own unique freshly baked goods and pastries. Those craving for substantial bites should look out for their signature fluffy cronuts and churros, with both being big hits with diners.

The warm strips of deep-fried churros with soft interior and crisp exterior turned out to be delicious. You can enhance this deep-fried treat with choice of salted caramel, chocolate, nutella and caramel sauce or cinnamon sugar.

You will be glad to know that both the cronuts and churros are recently available in a handy box. Each box is packed with baby-sized churros and cronuts, served with a scoop of macadamia ice cream and salted egg yolk dip. It proved to be a winning combination.

The cafe also prides itself on making its cheese cakes.

If you love Japanese-style flavors, the Uji matcha tart is simply divine.

The refreshing lemon cheese cake with smooth texture is served with nuts, oreo crumble and chocolate sauce, bringing a wonderful blend of flavors.
