Located at a small alley way that connects Campbell Street and Kampung Malabar Street, Toh Soon Cafe is an old but popular coffee shop that serves toast and coffee. The unique point about this old shop is its bread which is grilled using the traditional way, with charcoal fueled fire. Aside from its toast, the coffee served is one of the best local Hainanese style coffee in Penang.
Toh Soon Cafe usually opens from 8am to around 3pm and it is normally crowded.
An art work by artist Julia Volchkova can be found at an old overgrown wall along the alley of Lumut Lane, George Town. Improvising on the existing wall facade of nature and stone, this mural depicts an old Indian lady who seems to be praying under the overgrown tree’s shade.

As part of the effort to rejuvenate the old Bagan town in Butterworth, this area is being developed as Butterworth’s very own art space. This ‘outdoor art gallery’ hosts various art works or murals from local artists and is organized by Zart Inventive.
