In Penang for nearly 6 months, Yin's is my morning treat; incredible breads, bagels and baked goods, fresh juices and coffee roasted on premises. A small but delicious menu of breakfasts & lunch specialties including Penang's best pizza! A friendly staff and the feel of...a family run bakery & restaurant. Highly recommendMore

I was attracted to the aromatic smell of breadS when I first stepped in the cafe. Reminds me of in Europe. We tried the mix breakfast set and quiche. All were delicious and up to our taste buds. Beautiful brew coffee too... Nice ambience! Will...be our regular place in futureMore

It is one of the rarely restaurant in Penang to prepare the food from scrap material. It promote healthy food without sacrifice favours. We ordered the vegetarian pizza and really served with plenty of mushroom and of course the best is the sour dough.

Went here as recommended by the TripAdvisor community and it was near our hotel. The food definitely did not disappoint - tasty homemade goodness 😋 Pricewise, it may not be the lowest in town, but you pay for the quality! Try it to believe it.

A Place to visit for Breakfast... Do not miss it, plenty to offer at a very reasonable price and taste is very good... Yin is such a lovely adorable lady with the kind Father In Law helping out to run the business besides a young...charming and thin lady which I think must be the Manager perhaps. All of them carries a 5 Star badge of Service, as per se. Many Foreigners there for brekkie be it from Australia, UK, Germany, Russia or even Japan just to name a few... Please do Visit them when you are in Penang or at least once in your lifetime.. HahaMore

Vegans can choose between almond butter/peanut butter + banana sandwich or vegetable sandwich. Bread was fresh from the bakery and almond butter had a homemade feel. They also have fresh juice.

A simple and basic bakery that offers a range of baked goodies, all pleasantly displayed and effectively presented. Our baked goods were great, and second to that was the kindness and helpfulness that we received. We needed a bit of guidance and help and were...treated with a most pleasant response and assistance. Going here makes the day better.More

Was looking for a breakfast place and came across Yin’s Sourdough Bakery & Cafe. What a gem we discovered! Breakfast was excellent - we ordered the big breakfast and we not disappointed. Sausages and luncheon meat (side order) were made in-house - tasty, well seasoned...and just lovely. Coffee was great. And the sourdough (with fragrant kaya) was excellent. Staff were helpful and attentive - and friendly too. An altogether happy breakfast for my wife and me. Yin’s will now become our regular makan spot when we visit Penang.More
