Cafe scene in Penang is very interesting with new cafe popping up now and then, but the good one stays long and the least interesting one got of the cafe-game soon. One of my favourite – Norm Cafe has a new outlet at Church Street Ghaut.
House in a refurbish warehouse, the bare and crisp minimalist setup does makes a good backdrop for Instagram-hispter and interior-lover like me. Not many seatings are available in this spacious warehouse setting though – which is a plus! However, it was still that busy and crowded on my last visit (just before the COVID-19 lock down in Malaysia).
Unlike the original Norm Cafe, Norm Micro Roastery serves coffee and brunch; as the name explains, they roast their own coffee here.
What makes a good cafe for hopping is the space composition and this cafe does has the recipe for it.
Note: There’s beautiful little green mosses and if you do visit, do be careful and not step on them. It’s the indoor landscape that complement the overall setting.
Opens daily 9am – 11pm
13, Gat Lebuh Gereja, 10300 George Town, Penang.
