This joint offers a great variety of breakfast/brunch, including the Full English breakfast. There are different combinations of eggs and toasts to meet different demands. The price is reasonable, and the taste is great.

Excellent food. The rancheros is huge and the Bloody Mary is super strong. Prices are pricey but normal for Hong Kong. Free wifi too!

Not a place for a fancy breakfast, but like a diner in the US. Good breakfast options - eggs, pancakes and French toast. Very flexible menu. Catering to US and English customers has English, and American breakfast options. Didn't try French toast on this occasion but will be coming back. Eggs were cooked well. I had pouched eggs, avocado, toast... More

I would definitely recommend this place. It's the closet thing to a real US dinner you will find in Hong Kong. Nice menu for brunch with different style eggs. Not a fancy place but good for a hearty breakfast.

This place is a really good place for a hangover cure breakfast and also, most importantly, if you love eggs! The menu is HUGE!! and you can combine almost anything with anything and add...yes, you guessed it, anything! They have smoothies to help you rebalance those good old vitamins and there is something for everyone on this menu. Great little... More

A most improbable institution in a most improbable location in the mid levels. The menu is English breakfast on 24 hour basis, with an amazing array of choices and combinations. We had breakfast here three times while staying at the Butterfly on Wellington down the hill. Unfortunately, breakfast time is the only time the escalator works downhill only, so it... More

Love this place. I've been coming to the one in Central or the one in the Wan Chai for over 10 years. Their best known for their breakfast but they also have sandwiches and burgers. My 10-year-old just had a grilled cheese sandwich and said it was good. I usually stick to breakfast low.

No better place for a breakfast to fill you up for your day sightseeing. A no nonsense American syle diner with American sized portions. I had the very good huevos rancheros while my wife had a large and tasty frittata. Coffee seemed to be unlimited a pot was just left on the table.

This wasn't the best quality in the world but our hotel didn't include breakfast and I'm a fussy eater... After travelling Asia I can't say how nice it was to go somewhere and get bacon and eggs. Massive variety, expensive but just Hong Kong prices. Worth a trip, we went every morning of our three day trip.

The place is open 24 hours a day, so I can see it having a bit more of an appeal late at night after a few drinks. But it is definitely not anything close to an American Diner experience. It's just not good. Go to Green Waffle Diner instead.

Art galleries are plentiful and boutique cafés are tucked away in every side street in the sub district known as “PoHo.” Browse through the vintage clothing and handmade leather goods stores – it’s no surprise fashionistas flock to this area. History enthusiasts will be rewarded with sites of beautiful architecture, reflecting Sheung Wan’s past as one of the earliest settlements by British forces.
