Expresso at the Excelsior is very small but the Illy coffee is perfectly served, accompanied by a small range of pastries.

If you are not into hotel big buffet breakfasts, give this place a try. Good coffee, the best egg tarts, as well as bircher muslie, fruit salad, croissants etc. Not many seats but the service is also good, and they have BBC on the TV to watch while you eat or drink your coffee. They do take away as well.

Expresso and Lord Stow's are one in the same location. A cosy little area for a quick coffee and nice egg tarts freshly baked and received by the hotel in the morning. Be quick as they tend to sell fast!

The coffee shop opened from 7am - 7pm. Coffee was generally very nice as you might expect from Illy. Fantastic Portuguese egg tarts....will certainly be back!

EXpresso is located at the G/F at the Excelsior Hotel in Causeway Bay. In the busy Causeway Bay, EXpresso is a place you could have a rest and enjoy the coffee. I was there because of the good egg tarts. I think it is the best egg tarts in Hong Kong not compare to Macau. Lord Stow's egg tarts are... More

A great way to have breakfast - the bacon rolls are great and their hot green tea is superb - my husband tells me that their coffee is really really good - as I don't drink coffee I'll take his word for it!

Wow you must visit this little coffee place, the best Portuguese tart you would ever eat! Such a shame it is so small as it can be very busy!

I've used this cafe on many occasions and the service is always friendly and efficient. They make really good illy coffee and the custard tarts are very fresh and delicious - it's easy to struggle not to eat too many. Make sure you don't leave your visit too late as they normally run out of tarts by late afternoon.
