Newly opened pet-friendly Paradiso Backyard Cafe at Codrington Avenue in Pulau Tikus, Penang is a great place for a coffee break. It’s setting in a bungalow house strike a good balance of spacious sitting area in the back yard and parking spaces in the front garden.
Inside the cafe you will find an indoor dining area, then as you walk out to the backyard, there is the outdoor patio seating and an air-conditioned dining area to accommodate you and your furry friends .
Upon the entrance, one can catch the aroma of fresh coffee wafting through the air. The beverage menu consists of warm coffee and teas besides fresh juices, soda, healthy mix juices, soft drinks, and a handful selection of beer and wine.
