Recently it is getting so common to see lists of Penang famous food shared over in social media sites. I have recently discovered a list of Penang’s 10 new cafes. Unfortunately, the information listed is not very accurate especially on the operating hours. Also there isn’t much introduction or highlights of what do the cafes have to offer and what makes them so special. So it has become my job to find it out myself. Most of the new cafes only start operating at 11 am or 12 noon. For someone like myself who usually wake up at 9+ during weekends and start to look for breakfast during that time, this is not really practical. Out of the many cafes, only one that I have found to be operating before 10am, that is DCOVA Cafe.
DCOVA cafe used to be known as “Light House Coffee“. However, this cafe was taken over by another owner and hence the name changed as well. The cafe is now known as “DCOVA Cafe”. DCOVA Cafe is located at the central of town. If you are driving to town area from Penang Bridge via Beach Street, you will surely pass by OCBC on your left. Keep driving and just before Standard Chartered Bank, turn left to Union Street. Keep driving until the junction which leads to the one way street of Penang Street, at the next junction turn into Bishop Street. Drive for another 50 meters and keep a look out on your left and you will see DCOVA Cafe is there.
