“Made fresh with a nice view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I were looking for a fresh and refreshing lunch after a few days of not so healthy eating. This was the perfect place. The food was fresh and full of flavor. Recommend the baked chicken. There salads were also very nice. Be aware of the ginger ale... Got a hunk of ginger in there. Like I said, everything is fresh!!!!

“Ok for takeouts but grossly overpriced dine-in”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

Their pastries, bread and coffee are fine but if you dare to stay for brunch they'll charge USD 30.00 for a burguer that is under no circumstances better than those at Burger King.

“Fantastic!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Just returned from Hong Kong and Simply Life Cafe was our absolute favorite place to hang out for a glass of wine, coffee....and even dinner. In fact, we made a point of dining there the last evening of our stay! You will absolutely not be disappointed! Exceptional food quality for all types of diners or great place to stop just to refresh and have a glass of wine or... the best that coffee can be!!! Even more exceptional was the people! All at a great price! Thompson, the supervisor and Kristin, the hostess made us feel at home and could not have done more to make our dining experience more memorable. It will be a "must" stop on our next visit to Hong Kong. 5 Star dining couldn't have topped this. Dining is an important part of our vacation and for us, Simply Life a grand experience...fabulous food and great personal service. Our sincere thanks to Thompson and Kristin for their care and thoughtfulness! Don't miss this one! Beth and Peter

“Great cafe, million dollar view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012 via mobile

Simply life in IFC has a wonderful view of the bay. My huband and I would take to the bar stools, as it is often quite crowde all day and the bar table is right on the window that has a view.
You can choose from their sit-down menu or their a la carte bread-soup/salad-entreé menu. Their bread is lovely and filling, so is the soup!
On our last visit, we Decided to try the lunch menu and we were pleasantly surprised! You are given baguette slices upon ordering. Next comes a cup of soup or a salad. Then the entree. I ordered the angus burger which was cooked perfectly. It was juicy and came with bacon strips--how i like my burger! My husband ordered the open face steak sandwich.
Simply life is a little pricey but very convenient and the ambience is lovely.
