Depends what type of breakfast.
If it was me I would walk 1 street away to Lebuh Campbell to Hameediyah for my murtabak and teh tarik fix.
You are limited only by your imagination. The choices are endless.
If you want a real local experience seek out the kopi kedai (coffee shop) in the alley just off Campbell Street where it intersects with Penang Road.
Here you will find artisans who will cook toast over open coals and coddle you an egg which is to die for.
Please try it before it disappears. Cost is a few ringgits
Then there are the nearby tamil and malay breakfast joints and I could go on.
Follow your nose and enjoy
You are staying in Chinatown area, so 5 -10 mins walk will take you to a lot of choices.
2 streets away is Campbell street where there is a Campbell house (Boutique hotel). To the left of this hotel is Woo Hing watch shop and next door is a family dimsum restaurant, the old type where you may be expected to share tables.
Across is Cintra street where there is De tai Tong, another dimsum selling from morning till supper.
To the right of Campbell street is Chowrasta market where there there is a small open space. It is right behind a coffee shop. Here you can find some hawkers selling breakfast. The curry mee is good. Locate a stall selling potted plants and you will find the spot. There are also several coffeeshops near the market.
Walk towards Penang Road and opposite Oriental hotel, there is coffeeshop for mixed platter(bean curd, shrimp crisps, loh bak etc) , nasi lemak, noodles, fried koayteow . It is the corner coffeeshop at the junction of Penang rd/Argyl road.
Happy hunting.Edited: 09 June 2013, 15:12
In Chulia Street there is a truck load of places to have breakfast.
I usually go to the ECCO at 402 Chulia Street.
But there are plenty to go to, all the way around the corner to the backpackers
in Love Lane
