Nagore Square, a buzzy food scene in Penang is home to many food outlets. Conveniently sitting on the corner of the refurbished Chime Heritage building on nearby Jalan Bawasah is The Haven Harbour (HH). This double storey corner unit cafe with its white washed walls and spacious upstairs dining area is welcoming with modern day design and relaxing environment.

Andus Yeap takes care of the kitchen while Carine Lim is the lady behind the wide range of creative pastries and cakes. For freshness, only small patches of desserts are baked daily while the made to order signature desserts take 15 minutes of preparation.

Take your pick from the different types of chocolate desserts made with superior quality Callebaut chocolate products. Would it be the Poke Boule or the Chocolate Assiette? We had both choices.

The ball of Poke Boule with Frangelico infused lady finger coated with Belgian chocolate was served cold in a ramekin. Carine took it up a notch by adding nice sense of texture – fine lines of white chocolate and crisp peanuts. Recommended to go with a cup of Americano, the Poke Boule practically melts in the mouth. It brings back something memorable – roughly like eating rum ball.

DCOVA Cafe on Bishop Street in George Town Penang caters to a diverse downtown clientele of corporate types and town visitors. The cafe housed in the Logan Heritage Building takes over the space that was once Lighthouse Cafe. The all day dining cafe welcomes visitors with its food, cakes, tea and a vast selection of coffee.

We started exploring the several varieties of hot coffee drinks made using throwback coffee beans from Papa Pahleta. The throwback is a composition of Brazil Cerrado, Sumatra Ratawali Valley and Tobing Estate. I enjoyed the espresso solo, which gave satisfying flavors of dark chocolate.
