Soul Cafe also lists themselves as the 1st Photography Cafe in Penang. On their website, they describe themselves as "a hobby coffeehouse in George Town for all photography enthusiasts, creative expressionists, food connoisseurs, and coffee lovers".
I don't drink coffee, but I love pasta! And Soul Cafe does pasta really well. I had the Linguine al Vongole Con Curry (RM21.80) and it was delicious to the very last bite. The pasta was cooked al dente and the curry was creamy and flavourful.
My friend had the Spaghetti Al Affumicato (RM24.00) which had smoked duck, bacon and mushrooms. This was also quite delicious.
We will definitely be back to try more of their pasta dishes.
Soul Cafe also serves desserts, but just a few doors away, we discovered Dolce Dessert. I had actually been there a few weeks earlier to celebrate a friend's birthday and we had tried the afternoon tea set for 2 (RM54.00). It comes with Harrods tea.
Closer look at the food. The scones are quite nice and I think they make their own jam.
Besides afternoon tea, they have quite a wide variety of cakes and other petit desserts.
We tried the mango cheesecake - yummy!
We also tried the matcha lava cake which is like chocolate lava cake (which they have too) but with green tea filling instead. It was yummy as well.
The main seating area is upstairs and they had this quirky looking shelf which looked quite artistic.
Also check out the paintings on the wall:
It's a nice place for dessert, we will be back here too!
