42°La bohéme penang

Last weekend, I dragged stewpig to go "cafe-hopping"wif me again...
hehe
there's another new heritage cafe in town...
situated at Sri Bahari Road, opposite Feng Wei Restaurant, further down from The Ship...


it doesn't have a big sign board up to attract the passer-by...
looks exactly like a normal house dat alwiz-forgot-to-shut-da-gate...
walk up closer, you'll see a Small sign board written " 42 La Boheme " and it's the Name of this French Caffe !!!  ^^


So happee to found this simple caffe that selling French Patisserie ~~~
the lady boss, Huvi met the French Pastry Chef, Matthieu, during the holidays to India and here started the love stories~  :)
Matthieu learnt bakery since the age of 12...
being the Pastry Chef in UK, France, Italy and etc before...
experienced enough for them to kick start this little caffe to provide chances for Penangites to enjoy yummie French Patisserie and affordable rates !!!
* hop-hop-hop-jump~


simple deco, with some antique furniture to maintain the heritage building...
not air-conditioned but fans...
it's not hot in there due to wide space and tall ceiling like the old Penang houses used to have !



creative beverages menu that printed on Recycle-brown-bag~
** GO GREEN **


Brewed Coffee is not available but only the normal Black Coffee...
varieties of teas are availble...
Refer on the wall-board, Fresh Fruit juices and Iced Lemon Tea selling at rm 6


varieties of Pastries are available daily !!!!
they taste as nice as how they looked !
price range around rm 6 - rm 10
I can say the pastries here definitely tastier than those serving in E&O High Tea session !
can beat the standard of desserts in Delicious !
( but their availability are different... so no compete ! )


despite the cold desserts, they bake nice bread daily...
Almond / Chocolate/ normal Croissants, Cinnamon Roll, Sultana Roll, Chocolate Roll and etc...
price range:- RM 5 - 6

I so wanted to try !!! sultana and crossaint always my favourite ( i know i got too much of fav foods.. i just a foods lover ! but i can hardly resist breads !!! )
I will go back for this !!!!  :D


the varieties of beverages not much...
I had Apple Flower Tea, RM 8 and stewpig had Earl Grey, Rm 6
served in pot, I'm not sure if they allowed for refill...


I was there for a piece of sweet dessert during Tea...
but when I saw "Quiches" written on the board !
I just hmmmm... yes it's also mah fav... with one of my old fren since college time !

I TRIED not to order...
as i know stewpig wont help me eat this ! but when it served to table next to us...
i just can't say no to the nice out-from-oven-smell !!!! 

Fruits Tart - Strawberries and Blueberries

Stewpig and I love this too !!! when we were so hesitated and struggled to pick Only One dessert from the list... we spotted this beautiful berries...
without 2nd thought, stewpig said... go for this ! hehehe
there were some more with other fruits (eg, kiwi/ peaches)
the custard filling tasted just nice, won't be too sweet.. and the crust are well done as well !
rm 8
