If you have not heard of Little Allegra Bakery, it is time to take note of it! We did not know of its existence until recently.
Part of the reason for this is how inconspicuous the café looks from the outside. There’s no large signboard in front of the café.
It’s now our favorite café and we’ll tell you why in this post!
About Little Allegra Bakery
This Muslim-friendly café is quite new, starting in mid-2021. The original location of Little Allegra Bakery was inside KPJ Ipoh.
Now they have their own space in Canning Garden, an established residential/ commercial neighborhood in Ipoh.
The café is not open every day – just 4 days a week from Friday to Monday between 8:30am and 5pm.
They bake everything in-house and there’s also new things to try each time we visit. Most of what they sell are savory bakes. Although they have some dessert tarts and cakes too.
We like their extensive drinks menu. There are many interesting non caffeinated options too. Like soy chai latte or hazelnut soy latte.
Ease Of Parking
Across from the café is a church and a school. The café has two occupied houses on each side too.
So, there are not many places to park in front of the café. But so far, we have no trouble getting one of these precious spots.
Two sides ofLittle Allegra Bakery are covered in plants. You can enjoy all this greenery from the large windows.
It is not surprising that the window seats are always taken. The interior styling is eclectic but cosy.
There are a mix of outdoor and vintage chairs, a large organically shaped archway, and murals of trees and birds in the fall. Plants in unique vases line the long window seat at the side of the café.
There is a big selection of second-hand cookbooks for sale in a large open bookcase. You can’t read them until you buy them.
This air-conditioned café is not very big, but tables have sufficient spacing between them. Right at the back is the counter and an open shelf of all their pastries of the day.
The drinks menu is written on a chalkboard beside of this shelf, and the cakes and dessert tarts are right beside the cash register.
After choosing your selected pastries, hand them to the staff managing the counter and let them know your choice of drinks.
They toast the bakes before bringing them over and this can take 10 to 15 minutes.
Drinks usually come first before the reheated pastries do. There is a self-service drinking water station by the counter.
If it rains, the staff will offer to take you back to your car with one of their umbrellas.
Drinks are better than decent at Little Allegra Bakery. We’ve had the hazelnut latte, latte, soy chai latte, hazelnut soy, hōjicha and they are all good but not memorable.
It is the food that we always come back for:
The turkey bruschetta is amazing. And we like their chicken wrap and blueberry dessert tart too. Their bakes are full of flavor without being sweet.
My sister commented that their bakes are some of the best she has had in a café.
We will add that the plating is adorable, bright, and cheery with many different shaped cups and plates.
Hot drinks typically cost RM14, and cold drinks cost RM16.
For our group of 4, we would order 3 bakes and 4 drinks. And this would come up to about RM26 per person.
We think the food is well worth the price.
As you can see, we have nothing but high praise for this little hidden café in Ipoh. We are keen to return to Little Allegra Bakery for our next teatime session with friends and family.
