Penang has added another cafe/bar/restaurant to the list of places to visit for a meal.
The newly opened Hillside Cafe serves English/American cuisine for breakfast, lunch and Dinner. Located at a convenient area in Tanjung Bungah, the Hillside Cafe is mainly packed with expats, tourists, as well as locals from the neighbourhood.

The Works

The Works

The Works (RM 19.50) is one of their signature dishes, serving English Breakfast ingredients which consists of Sausage, Bacon slice, two eggs, slice of tomato, and finished off with Heinz Beans with Chunky piece of toast.

Both the sausage and bacon were cooked to perfection, however I would prefer the eggs to be slightly runny and not well-cooked.


You can also opt for a light meal with the Croissant (RM 6.90) served with preserves and butter.

Traditional British Fish and Chips

Here at The Hillside Cafe, the Traditional British Fish and Chips (RM 22.00) deep fries Tilapia fish in Golden Beer Batter and served with homemade chunky chips with a side of salad.


You can hardly go wrong with the famous BLT (RM 17.00), which is served with succulent slices of bacon, tomatoes, crispy green lettuce topped with Dijon mayonaise dressing in an English muffin and a side of chips and salad (to ease the guilt of too much bacon and meat)

The Healthy Start

How about something healthy to start off the day? You can opt for the Healthy Start (RM 9.90) that comes in a bowl of crunchy granola, delicious helping of yogurt and finished with a generous amount of honey to sweeten the meal.

Mozzarella Sticks

Here's something which is a catch, the crispy and creamy Mozzarella Sticks (RM 12.00) are perfect for sharing and a side snack. 

Fresh Juices

The fresh juices are off the menu which are available upon request/order.
