Another brunch post! I have to admit i am a sucker for brunch so please bear with my brunch posts 😀

Penelope, as I quote from their website, is a cafe, wine bar, and bakery that opened its doors in the summer of 2003. I was browsing for brunch spot on the internet one day and decided to try this one. And guess what? no regret at all. LOL. The place is super cute; the interior is mostly wooden-kinda-old-house type, the ambience was cozy-you-can-spend-the-entire-day-sitting-and-chatting-and-eat, and believe me or not, I and my friends actually spent almost five hours there eating and laughing and eating and drinking and laughing again :D.

Overall, the food is great! I had Nutella French Toast and it was painfully delicious. Seriously, it was like they poured one whole jar of nutella into it and the caramel sauce was just to die for. I don’t want you to stop drooling so here are the photos:

Oh just look at that!
