Penang being famous for its delicacies and tourist heritage attractions has added another newly opened cafe to the list of "cafes to visit". With its unique presentation of food served on wood boards,Coffee Smith attracts patrons to experience a contemporary style of dining and environment with overhead light bulbs providing cozy vibes.

Located at Maritime Piazza, Karpal Singh Drive, Coffee Smith Penang serves Western cum Italian style cuisine and the number of crowd never ceases to amaze me especially during the weekends.

Now for the long awaited food which finally arrives after we took some pictures..

Grilled Cuttlefish with Peppermint Sauce

The first dish to arrive was the Grilled Cuttlefish with Peppermint Sauce, I must say I'm satisfied with the portion given as the whole Cuttlefish was grilled and drizzled with peppermint sauce and finally topped off with a handful of salad.

The cuttlefish was grilled to perfection and the tenderness remains within..It will only cost RM 16.00 per serving.

Garlic White Wine Clams Noodle

Salad and Soup

Soon as we finished our first dish, the next to arrive was the Garlic White Wine Clams Noodle..Hmm.. I must say I'm not that satisfied with this dish..

The Garlic White Wine clams noodle comes in a set with a side of coffee, salad and soup..

I can hardly taste any white wine but then again, the clams were not fresh hence we had to throw a few aside, overall I must say this is a disappointment for my first try and besides being a priced at RM 19.00, I was expecting much better than this.

Sicilian Chicken Sandwich

Now here's something that I would recommend, the Sicilian Chicken Sandwich. Sandwich between two lightly toasted bread, there are onions, and cabbage with well cooked chicken and a finishing of basil pesto.

It comes with a side of french fries and mayonaise sauce and all for the price of RM 14.00.
Though it may come out a little dry due to the breast meat of the chicken, I would still say it's a good try for the sandwich.

Eggs Benedict with Hollandaise Sauce

Egg Benedict is one of my all time favourite food, and I would expect perfection when it comes to this dish wherever I order it..

The eggs are cooked to perfection, however, I didnt like the ham, and it would taste much better if there was more Hollandaise Sauce as I could barely taste them..
The Egg Benedict serving also comes with a side of french fries and two meat burgers which is too overpowered by herbs that I could hardly taste the meat..

With the price of RM 24.00 per portion, I would say it's a little pricey considering the size and taste of the servings.

Potted Milk Tea

Potted Strawberry Milk Shake

Potted Mango Milk Shake

Coffee, Espresso and Milk

Our drinks arrived shortly before our meals, All Potted drinks are served in a small cup which is shaped like a pot, and finished with fruits and sprinkles of cookie crumbs.

The Potted Milk tea costs RM 9.00 and as for the Potted Mango and Strawberry Milk Shake costs only RM 12.00.

As for the coffee, espresso and milk..the orange cup is for the espresso which will be enjoyed without milk, and for the yellow cup of can choose to add milk to turn it to latte, or simply just have it black.

Overall, I would say it is definitely worth a try, hurry up and visit Coffee Smith and I will let you be the judge!
