Located at Stewart Lane near the Kuan Yin Temple, The Alley is a modest café easily overlooked if not for the small signboard in the front. In fact, the store facade still bears the previous incense shop's as an agreement with the owner. This turns out as a blessing in disguise as many regulars are pleased with the vintage storefront.
The order of Cappuccino (RM11.00) is served in a porcelain cup with saucer, the typical type used in traditional coffee shops. The cappuccino is quite strong with its medium-dark roast. A small bag of Kong Th'ng is provided. This hard candy is made from peanuts and sugar. Although commonly enjoyed on its own, Kong Th'ng tastes surprisingly well after a brief dip with some coffee.
