Menu looked great - many mix and match combinations. Food itself was OK, but the menu and reviews set higher expectations I'm afraid. OK, but nothing exceptional.

The breakfast is good and some options are very reasonable. The Jumbo breakfast is very good value especially if you share with another person. However the griddle option can be better. Service is great but presentation can be improved. WiFi is slow. BTW try the buzz shakes which are amazing.

The food was very good. The staff was friendly and the location was clean. They have free WIFI too. The food is finish in a couple of minutes. The breakfest was very British. All in all everything was fine.

If you are in SOHO in the middle of the night and you need some simple "comfort" food then this is the place. A huge selection of all kinds of breakfast food. Portions are large, prices are very reasonable and the staff was very friendly even at 1:00AM.

We came here for brunch on our first day in Hong Kong. Great choice on the menu but we both ended up ordering huevos rancheros. Very tasty (I probably prefer mine bit spicier but lovely all the same) price includes a small juice. With a soda adde on the bill came to €215 incl. service charge. Not the cheapest but... More

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.

Staying in Sheung Wan

Neighborhood Profile
Sheung Wan
Unlike most of Hong Kong’s other popular districts, Sheung Wan welcomes wanderers with an easy-going, relaxed atmosphere. 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. As night falls, the entertainment scene reveals itself to be just as laid back with its private kitchens, speakeasies and underground bars dotted throughout the area. When in Sheung Wan, everyday feels like the weekend.
