Pangkor may be a small place, but if you need a snack, espresso, or a regular pint, Pangkor won’t disappoint. Even better if you don’t mind taking the boat over to Lumut.

If you want to down your nosh while the sun goes down, there’s no better place to do it. This beachside hangout café serves highly-recommended (even by the locals!) Malaysian and European food, including beef rendang (stewed beef in spices), chicken chop, and mango salad. You may have to wait a little for your food to arrive, but who cares about that when you have the sand and sea for company?

Low-profile is the way this cafe likes it — because when you’re good, who needs publicity? From Mama’s curry chicken rice to garlic bacon spaghetti, and from churros ice cream cups to strawberry-topped cupcakes, this cafe will have you salivating from the moment you step through the door.

If you like your cakes as much as you like your coffee, here’s your sweet spot in Pangkor. Customizable birthday cakes are Seamoon’s specialty, but you’ll be equally delighted by their mouth-watering array of tarts, waffles, and mousses. Drop by for their afternoon tea sets, and you may be staying until dinner.

Okay, so we cheated. The Farm Cafe isn’t exactly on Pangkor Island, but if you’re willing to work your feet or a few GrabCar wheels, this well-loved cafe will reward you with salted egg croissants, cempedak (a kind of jackfruit) cake, and strong coffee in a rustic boutique setting.
