Serve good coffee and you virtually can smell the coffee the moment you step. They also serve pastries and cakes. Small deli but nice, went with my family who are coffee die hard, regular coffee was strong with great aroma. Nice place to enjoy your afternoon and let time just pass away.

Great breakfast option if you're in a rush - it serves decent coffee and croissant sets as well as the famous egg tarts which are worth a try!

The cafe serves delicious Portuguese egg tarts, coupled with a cup of coffee. Service of staff is good, only thing is cafe is a bit small, will not be able to seat big groups.

Service was cool, staffs were great. Very kind and peaceful support. Enjoyed egg tart with coffee. Tart was not too sweet, recommend to visit once to get a quick breakfast before starting shopping.

Good tea, yummy tart, flaky croissant - quick and easy alternative way to grab breakfast on the way out the door if you don't have time or appetite for full breakfast buffet.

Staying in Wan Chai / Causeway Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centres of Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and restaurants, both areas are bustling with people – tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart. Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye – find boutique stores in the above ground floors of buildings and wander into side streets to find interesting restaurants and shops tucked away from the main roads. Wan Chai especially has experienced a modern revival in recent times, with an influx of trendy restaurants and bars around the Star Street area. In addition, both areas contain many of Hong Kong’s iconic tourist attractions worthy of your visit.
