Lunabarcoffee In George Town, Penang - travelswithsun

Lunarbarcoffee is far from tourist spots in Penang. It is close to a residential area and is popular with the working crowd nearby.

So, is this beautiful café still worth a visit if you’re from out of town?

Afternoons may be too hot to enjoy the garden setting of the outdoor seating area in front of the café.

But the inside of the café is fully air-conditioned. They have a lot of indoor plants and antique furniture to admire.

The middle section of the café does get a lot of sunlight though, so it is not as cool as the front section.

Customers can sit around the drink preparation area too as there is bar seating.

At the back of the café, there is a full-sized table tennis table (and paddles), more indoor plants, and the toilets (which are clean even if one was out of order).

How Great Are The Drinks Here?

Even on a weekday, we saw both new and regular customers frequently coming in. Some of the regulars ordered coffees to go.

We did try their regular latte and it already had such a unique flavor that we’ve never come across before. The coffee was rich, aromatic, and not too sweet or bitter.

There’s a decent selection of other non-coffee beverages too.

We opted for the pressed juice of guava, apple, and lemon. This combination with ice was surprisingly pleasant and refreshing.

They have some cakes on display at the counter but after our heavy lunch, we didn’t feel like trying any.

What Is The Service Like?

The thing that we remember the most from our experience at Lunarbarcoffee is not the great drinks or lovely ambiance, but the service.

All their staff are cheery and very helpful. We saw many instances of them going out of their way to make sure that customers had comfortable seating.

They are very good friends with their regular customers and laughter and conversation fills the space along with the enticing smell of coffee.

They do have a minimum requirement of 1 order per person. So, a session here can be pricey.

Coffee is priced between RM11 to RM17. And it costs RM21 for the more exotic filter blends. There is the option of oat milk for an additional RM3.

A slice of cake can cost between RM13 to RM17.

We spent close to RM30 here for our two drinks – latte and cold pressed juice.

You can take advantage of their early opening hours (8am on weekdays, 9am on weekends) to have more chances of finding a convenient parking spot.

We went on an afternoon and did not have to spend too long searching for a spot. Although admittedly, it was not a legal parking spot but on a long sandy stretch in front of a home.

This parking spot is across the road from Lunarbarcoffee along Jalan Clove Hall. In fact, the whole street seems very quiet.


Despite the high pricing, we can see why Lunarbarcoffee is so successful. Not only is this café very easy on the eyes, but they also have an exceptional team running it.  

It is clear that people come back here for more than just their coffee which is also better than average.

We can easily say that this is one of our favorite cafes in Penang. And it is worth driving out of George Town to find it. But if you don’t want to drive so far, try these George Town Cafes.
