I was one of the lucky one to be able to join the Penang Heritage Food Trail. We had a great chance to have our food review at the Coffee Atelier situated at Stewart Lane. I had wanted to try the meal at this café which used to be known as Kopi Cine before this ; when I passed by during the Canon Marathon last year.
I had a great start on my Saturday lunch, being greeted by the organizer Vin Lim and of course the friendly lady boss from Hong Kong named Lorita. We were brief first by the Outlet Manager, John about the Coffee Atelier origin.
One must be wondering why is it name as Atelier? What does it mean? It defines the french words for workshop. This relates to the collection of the 5 interlinked shophouses which ranges from Cafe to Coffee Museum to Art Gallery and Boutique Hotel. this Coffee Atelier was bought over by the Gehrig’s couple, Stefan Gehrig & Lorina. The idea is indeed a good concept of preserving the Penang heritage culture.
First of all, we had our Appetizer of the Cold Cut Platter consist of the fresh salami, French ham, smoked pork rib eye, meat balls as the main ones, with some side dishes of the pickles and some bread to eat with. The slices of the salami and ham were cut just at the right thickness for the bread bites.
Next is the Cheese platter. Those who are familiar with cheese will know. It has Gruyer, Emmentaler, Brie and Gorgonzola. This normally comes together with pickles and bread as well.
And also the Albondigas con Salsa de Tomato. A mouthful of the pork meatball gives a tantalizing taste of satisfaction. Good combination with some white raddish and peppery as the toppings. This costs RM13.
Next one is called Gambas Capane. It's was crispy bread wrapped with shrimp which gives a zesty feeling.
Grilled Eggplant could be a favourite dish for those who like brinjals. It’s flavoured with some basils and some slight spicy taste at the end.
Next is the strong tasting of the Champignons which are stewed with whole piece of Garlics and tomato sauce.
Next is the Aglio Olio Spaghetti which served with smoked salmon, extra virgin olive oil , some garic chips and parsley. The fresh salmon gives the extra point for this.
The next unique one is called Al Gorgonzola Penne with Rucola salad and mini tomatoes. It’s quite a rich pasta dish with the more known as the blue cheese in the sauce. It’s quite worth to try with some extra gain on the calories. However, not to worry, you could order this as a sharing for maybe 4 pax.
Good choice for vegetarian, you may order Siciliana Spaghetti. It’s cooked with Eggplant, onions,basils in tomato sauce, with some parmesan cheese on the top.
They do serves varieties of Coffees, Tea and other beverages.
We had a try on their Long Black, Café Latte, Café Mocha. It was aromatic.
They do serves the signature coffee from Kim Guan Coffee beans as well.
Accompanying with savory desserts are the best.

It was a year ago that a group of us would want to go over to Pulau Aman. Finally, i went there last weekend. We depart from the Jetty around 1030am. At first i thought we had missed the boat as i have checked the website the boat to Pulau Aman timing is 10am and the next trip is 1pm. And the thing is that the shcedule we saw from website was referring to weekdays.
