|Cozy Breakfast at Ferringhi Coffee Garden|

With a unique garden setting, surrounded by lusty green plants and a cosy ambience, Ferringhi Coffee Garden is the place to go for a hearty breakfast. This restaurant located in Batu Ferringhi is owned by Richard Long of the neighbouring Ferringhi Garden Restaurant.
A good dish to start the day would be baked omelette and toast. The thick, charcoal-grilled toast has a nice crunch, but it’s the tender omelette with mixed mushrooms, beef bacon, chickpea, edamame (boiled green soyabean) and wonderful cheesy flavour that makes it a must-try. Don't limit yourself to the omelette as there are plenty of other great options, including chicken and beef sausages.
The burgers with a hearty serving have an interesting combination of ingredients. The luscious club sandwich is substantial enough as a full meal. It has two thick slices of house-baked focaccia with a healthy dose of ingredients in between (turkey ham, mozzarella cheese, omelette, grilled beef, smoked salmon and plenty of greens), with crisps on the side. There’s a choice of chicken, too.
The restaurant pride itself in making its own pastries, including Petit Four and French pastry. The Petit Four, decorated with swirls of chocolate and nuts, is rich in flavour. The French pastry selection is fair, including the popular creme brulee.
Ferringhi Garden Restaurant doesn’t just serve breakfast. The menu includes lunch and all-day dining offerings. The teatime menu serves up the FCG Special (a combination of freshly made sandwiches and Petit Four with a choice of coffee or tea). For dinner, don’t forget the barbecued offerings of kebab, satay and burger.
