Great place for lunch or a quick snack

The Simply Life Cafes all over HK, are worth going to for lunch or a quick snack, although are very popular for the locals at lunch time so can be busy, food is very good and is good value. A great place to have a break from shopping or sightseeing

Went to lunch today with a family member who is vegetarian. On their lunch menu their only salade option included ham. There only other vegetarian options included an egg dish, a very unappealing sounding dish of brown rice and goat cheese and a pizza. My family member ordered the artichoke and sun dried tomato pizza without the cheese. It was... More

Simply life is famous for its cakes & breads. Tried their restaurant last week for 'brunch' with expectation and we need to queue up for 1 hour for seats. What they offered? Soup with a slice of bread or a plate of salad, a main course, soft drink or 'home made' tea. That's all. About HK$140 per person including service... More

Great western and asian food. Large portions. Large choice of desserts. Very good service. Come early for lunch (before 11AM) as there is usually a long queues on week-end days.

I go to Simplylife at Festival walk fairly often as I work near there so I thought I would take a minute to review it! Overall I would say the meals are average, although, they do a nice latte; it's on the stronger side, rich, creamy and nutty. The beans they use are not over roasted like Starbucks so the... More

The whole concept of this restaurant is unique as you can see everything being baked or cooked. Very clean, healthy and pleasant environment. The food is excellent. The salads and the grilled black cod were just marvelous. Delightful and lively dining experience. The main problem is its popularity and the consequent waiting time unless you go there in a reasonably... More

Always, always queues when you walk past this place. I can't see the attraction when there are so many other choices in Festival Walk. We queued for about 45 minutes on a weekday lunch hour. The menu was cafe style Western fare. The dishes ordered by my party looked fine. Their take on fish and chips looked interesting and we... More

If you are unfortunate enough to have ordered beef that was not cooked properly, be prepared to have your meal interrupted by a manager that goes by the name ‘Hot’ who not only does not apologize for his chef’s inability to cook a piece of meat properly, but proceeds to launch into a long discussion on how I should have...

After they moved to this new location, that was the second time we dine there within a month. Six of us had a wonderful dinner on 5th July last Friday. Perhaps it was Friday night, our sons plus girls friends had to queue for 2 hours since 7:20pm till we could had a table at 9:25pm! Though waited for long,... More

Simplylife has very good selection of the cakes as to company coffee/tea. Also, we like to come here for weekend brunch. This place is always full on weekend. There is always a queue. In terms of brunch menu, there is menu selection, mmm... I'm wondering if the selection changes once in awhile. I guess it's good to speed up the... More
