Wonderful night out at affordable Hong Kong pricing. Tasty range of meals and atmosphere especially when the company and service is great too. Ooooh yes and stunning range of croissants and homemade breads to choose from.

We came for brunch on a Sunday afternoon. It was busy but not so busy for service to slack. When shown to our table, I asked the lady to change my chair as it was covered in bits of food. Instead of changing it, she used her hand to wipe the chair and then went on to serve other customers.... More

I had their salad bowl, for which you can choose 4 or 6 ingredients. The variety is little and they don't go together well. Even though the place seems like a fancy lounge place, my experience was café like. I believe there are two sides: the restaurant and the cafe. I was at the cafe. The atmosphere is relaxed and...

It turns out quickly that it is more a place for takeaway or alternatively sit at the associated tables.The seating arrangement is easily confused under the big pressure around lunch.Brunch supply at a fixed price proves to be a choice from the menu, however, is abundant.What, however, fails precariously's is the ventilation system. I have smelled less cooking odors when... More

Good cafe with good selection of cereals , sandwiches , drinks and comfortable atmosphere. Nice coffee , good for family and couples. The bread is really great. A few notches up from subway and Deli France in my opinion.

The pastry is versatile and above average. Soup is ok not impressive. White Coffee is just ok. Dine in brunch is better. Fast food services at the counter and bit confusing. Like their open space with natural sunlight. Recommended. Overall better dining experience than greyhound next door.

This bright and airy cafe with an open kitchen is delightful for breakfast or a morning snack. We ate there three times on our visit and were delighted each time. The counter service is efficient and the selection is amazing - a wide selection of sweet and savoury pastries, rolls and sandwiches, and great coffee. They also serve wine, but... More

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
