I was very happy to have found this quaint little dessert shop that sells a variety of cakes and pies. I highly recommend ordering a slice of their chocolate cake and apple crumble pie!

A lovely cafe in Lebuh Muntri. Went on a Friday afternoon and it wasn't crowded. Ordered a mango cheesecake and it was great.

Visited Penang again after many years... naturally, many things have changed, including the rise of many small niche eateries in old shop houses. We sought out Passion Heart based on reviews we had read elsewhere. Our taxi dropped us off in the approximate area and we walked down the street. The street itself was not particularly lively or attractive but... More

A cute little cafe housed in historic building on busy Muntri Street. They serve a full menu but I stopped in for coffee and cake. Good coffee and DELICIOUS durian cream cake made with fresh durian. If you're a durian fan, it's worth a visit just for this cake.

Open and airy cafe in a heritage shophouse along the tourist-filled Muntri Street. Simple menu, affordable, good sized portions, homemade. Do try cempedak cake (a type of jackfruit), apple crumble, banana cake..... and durian, if your taste buds agree ;) Service is just ok, was not expecting anything more. Might be different if you're not local. Parking can be difficult,... More

So I saw the review of Passion Heart's Durian Fresh Cream Cake, so on the way back to our hotel, we came upon it, and just went on in. It was rather quiet inside, and spacious, love the homely old town set up of the cafe. The cakes were nice and soft, but the durian paste of the cake was... More

So good we came twice- shared a piece of cake each time, the slices are very generous. Coffee is excellent too, fished the three scoops of icecream out of the affogato and had it with the carrot cake on first visit and hummingbird cake on second. Delicious fresh pineapple pieces in the hummingbird cake, walnuts in both and a charming... More
