While waiting for our recent ferry to Hong Kong, we visited the Gloria Jean's on the 3rd floor of the Outer Harbor Ferry Terminal and had a great coffee and cheesecake, quite a surprise considering the location.
They have tables set-up but they are usually full with people waiting for their departures so its often impossible to get a seat. There was also only one staffer so preparing drinks and snacks was a bit more time consuming this time around, the good news is that this barista was skilled in her trade.
We tried a Carmel Latte that was flavorful with a much stronger espresso taste than we are used to at other coffee shop franchises. Very nicely done (rating 3.75 of 5), would happily stop for another of the same order.
The Cream Cheesecake we tried was also surprisingly good, having a light - tofu cheesecake like texture and a lovely taste. A very nice dessert (3.5 of 5), would reorder this one again as well.
Overall, a very good stop for coffee and snacks. Too bad it was at a ferry terminal and not a nice outdoor coffee shop in a better location. We've been happy with stops at the Gloria Jean's at the ferry terminal, its a good option for those with a bit of time to kill prior to sailings to Hong Kong.
