Penang is filled with diverse heritage, rich history and a lot of its buildings were built back in the early 20th century during the British colonization. Today, you can see many restaurants and cafes have incorporated unique interior design to retain the beauty of the state's historical buildings. Other than serving tasty dishes, of course ?

One of these cafes is nestled among the busy streets of Jalan Burma, Georgetown called Little Collins Street Cafe! Since its opening in late December 2020, this is a new, trendy spot that cafe hoppers should definitely add into their list.

Respecting its history, Little Collins Street Cafe still keeps the old signboard that says "Poliklinik Pulau Pinang" and has added their own small sign above the original name. It might be tricky to spot this cafe so keep your eyes out!

But, this new hangout scene is attracting customers left and right for its IG-worthy interior design and fresh, scrumptious pastries. As soon as you enter its premise, the smell of freshly baked pastries and brewing coffee will fill the air! Their menu mainly consists of pastries, cakes, cookies and sweet, sugary drinks. Perfect for foodies with a sweet tooth ??

Fans of croissants won't be disappointed if they visit this cafe as they serve the flakiest and creamiest Cream Cheese Croissant. LCSC also has something for chocolate fanatics where they could order their mouth-watering Pain au Chocolat and Chocolate Ganache. Not a fan of sweet pastries? Not to worry as they also serve delicious savoury Mushroom & Leek Danish.

Other than these pastries, LCSC also sells big, gooey cookies of many flavours. Don't they just look so beautiful and appetizing? However, the saying says people eat with their eyes. Perhaps food tastes 10x better inside their cafe because of their minimal and vintage decor! This is absolutely the perfect place to hang with your friends or partners ?
