Passion Heart Cafe with its location on Muntri Street in George Town, Penang is a gathering place for both locals and visiting tourists. Housed in a prewar shophouse without any air conditioning, the cafe’s high ceiling provides a casual relaxing atmosphere to enjoy homemade delights.
The pork-free cafe serves up a variety of homemade delights at pocket-friendly prices by owner Nely Koon. One can indulge with a meal, a coffee, or a cake.
To fuel the morning, start with the selection of pasta, soup, sandwiches, and All-Day Breakfast. The soups are made fresh upon order and come with choices of wild mushroom, tomato, and broccoli.
A hugely satisfying option for a sandwich is the Smoked Salmon with Cheese Sandwich – put together with bread made from rye flour (naturally lower in gluten), mayonnaise, and greens. The rye bread is also fitted into the All-Day Breakfast dishes. Why not try the Rye Toast with home-made Nutmeg Jam, and Scramble Egg & Rye Toast?

The pasta dish lets the quality of the homemade sauce speak for itself. The menu got you covered with freshly made creamy Carbonara to Aglio Olio, refreshing Pesto Spaghetti, and Tomato Spaghetti.
For lovers Aglio Olio, the pasta dish bursting with fresh greens, juicy sweet tomatoes, garlic, chili padi, olive oil, and generous amount of parmesan cheese is the one for you.
