July 2014 | Penang Cafe - The Mugshot Cafe at 18:22

After the tour at 3D Interactive Museum, we went to a cafe to rest for a while.

We are going to The Mugshot Cafe, which located at Love Lane.

Address: 302, Chulia Street, 10200 George Town, Penang.
Operating Hours: Mon- Sun 8.00am - 12.00am
Facebook Page: The Mugshot Cafe

The cafe has been awarded with excellence certificate from Tripadvisor!

The cafe mainly selling yogurt, coffee and bagels.

I walked around to snap the interior pictures.

This is a small corner at the back of the cafe. The cafe was quite small and fully occupied.

I love to see so many small detailed decoration of the cafe.

This is the yogurt factory section. All the yogurt were made by themselves, wasn't outsourced.

This cafe only serves some coffee, yogurt and bagels.

Later, i found out he is actually smiling to my phone camera. Laugh.

He found out that i were taking pictures and video around his cafe.
He is one of the mastermind behind The Mugshot Cafe, Tristan. I've read an articles about the owners. It was owned by two childhood friend who were Tristan and Jesse (both aged 35).  

Extracted from the article.

Here, they talk about their respective journeys in the years leading to the opening of Mugshot and their take on the success of their café.
In their own words:
  • Jesse: Baking was something I stumbled upon because all those years ago, I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I merely wanted to make my own bread and from there, my interest grew and I discovered that baking suited me very well.
(Jesse and his twin brother opened Rainforest Bakery which adjoins Mugshot. Jesse still does the baking in the bakery today.)
  • Tristan: I was a science stream student with a love for maths and physics and I wanted to be an engineer but after a field trip to a factory where I saw the working environment, I realised I can’t work in such a place.
  • Jesse: Tristan and I became friends at seven years old, we were classmates at St Xaviers Institution and we were also room-mates when studying in the UK.
  • Tristan: I started in the F&B industry when I was working part-time at Segafredo here many years ago and I realised I love working in the industry so I went to the UK to study hospitality management.
  • Jesse: Tristan has been in the F&B industry for many years and it’s always been an idea in the back of our minds for many, many years to start something in F&B together.
  • Tristan: My parents always taught me to love what I do regardless of the size of the paycheck so when I wanted to go into the F&B industry, they were supportive and they told me that I need to do what I feel best doing.
  • Jesse: When we started Mugshot, we did not have much money, so we did everything ourselves from making the tables to painting the interior and we never imagined it would grow to become what it is now. Our initial plan was just me and him running this café.
(Today, they have seven staff members and are also providing opportunities for other young people interested in F&B by going into partnerships with them eg. the juice station at the back of Mugshot.)
  • Tristan: The new cafés coming up everywhere will definitely affect us somehow but I’m confident in what we do and that’s why Jesse and I will continue to do our parts... and if we are confident in our own work,  then it will not be a problem. What we need is just confidence in what we do.
  • Jesse: We try to create opportunities for the young team coming on board with us in hopes they can grow so that we all can grow together. There is a bright future for F&B and we hope to inspire or help the few talented ones to get into what they do best so that we can do it together.
  • Tristan: Mugshot will remain as the one and only independent café for us. There’s always plans for another café but it will be a different concept, it could be something else. It will take time for us to plan it out though.

We ordered walnut and mango yogurt vs. Walnut and raisin yogurt | RM10 each

It was so nice and refreshing. If i wasn't full from the brunch, i would try on the bagel too!

random quote hanging on the wall.

A must take shot for visitors to the cafe :)

Here's the video i've taken. Super in love with this application.

After the short visit at The Mugshot Cafe, we spend about one hour there only. Then we move to First Avenue for some window shopping. I spend a lot of time in H&M but still din buy anything apparels.

So after that just go back to hotel and rest.

To be continue...

I've learned goodbyes
will always hurt
pictures never replace
