Harvest In Cafe @ Irrawaddy Road, Penang

When I stepped into Harvest In Cafe recently, I felt a wave of nostalgia as this was the place I had gone to for Bahasa Malaysia tuition in secondary school. I guess my tuition teacher must have sold the place and moved away as it is now home to a simple yet classy cafe serving Western cuisine…


Very nice facade yes? I love the cute lamp post!

I love the high ceilings, clean cut lines and the crisp white theme.



Needless to say I was suitably impressed by the decor. What about the menu and the food?


  1. That almond fish looks gorgeous! I wouldn’t even mind the sodium overload 😛 It seems little places like this are opening up quite rampantly in Penang but somehow business still not sustainable. Here’s hoping this sticks around, long enough for me to try it when I go back anyway!

    550ml jar of faith´s last blog post..We like pasta, we like wine!

  2. BBO – yep. nice look to it 🙂

    NKOTB – no, casablanca is just a lil further down the road. the old casablanca is at the corner of irrawaddy road and service road (which is now one way)

    food paradise – hope you’ll like the food! lunch seems more worth it! (cheaper prices but different food choices)

    J2Kfm – oh yeah! you’re right abt the almond fish. it is rather similar to little cottage’s version. not too sure if it tastes the same though since i havent tried little cottage’s.

  3. I just went today with my colleagues this noon, I personally enjoy the ambience & also the food. Thus far I had order the soup of the day, Cajun Turmeric chicken rice, & Honey Lemon Ice. I personally love the Cajun Turmeric chicken meal – the blend of both lemon & turmeric sauce with the low fat chicken breast portion, is just nicely perfect. Pleasantly enough, the honey lemon tho an ordinary drink, saturation & mix were nicely blend, not too sweet, not to sour, just nice 🙂 perfect. but doesnt really like the soup of the day – brown sausage soup with garlic bread (garlic bread is good :P) . Overall still thumbs up, the food is relatively reasonable without 10+5% tax 😀 simply love it.

  4. this place used to be where i go for physics tuition! Mr. Arun? mayb other tutors used this place too cos u said u went there for BM tuition! 🙂
    anyways, i find the food here really fantstic. the dishes are very flavourful and the portion is just perfect for us asians. i’ve tried the cajun chicken for lunch. comes with creamy mustard sauce. divine. 🙂
    the decor gives tis place an air of elegance and wide space because of the use of white. It stands out from the rest of the houses.
    this is a place i’ll definitely go back to over n over again 🙂

    1. hi yi xin! glad you liked the place! yeah i used to go there for BM tuition (form 1-3 i think) wasnt aware that there was physics tuition there too! lol

  6. Will never go to this place again, staff is very rude and not friendly at all. Made reservation but ran a little late so called to say coming a lil late, staff over the phone says cannot will have to give up our table that staff did not talk nicely more like arrogant very rude like do not want to entertain us. So pleaded staff to keep our table, upon arrival few minutes upon agreed time found that staff gave up our table nevertheless still staff was rude to us not want to entertain us. It will be that last time I will ever go there it’s not like their food is the best I have tasted far better food then theirs with better pricing in Penang. The reason we chose to dine here was the atmosphere quite cozy. Anyway I hate restaurants like this thinks that they are superior and can treat their customers like shit. Not “Impressive” at all
