A wonderful authentic breakfast experience. We had a pineapple bun with coffee for 27 HKD each. Hard to beat! Friendly staff and English menu. No name on the outside so just look for the street number. Great way to eat like a local when traveling....More

Bun is crunch top and soft and moist bun on the bottom unlike a lot of others which usually a bit dry. The milk tea us a good compliment to the bun. Worth a visit if you crave a decent pineapple bun in HK.
