Really tasty veggie food here. Very chilled out with real community vibes going on here. The owner is well know on the island as a passionate environmentalist. A must if you are a veggie

The bookworm café has a cozy hipster-atmosphere and is decorated originally. The food is really delicious, even if you're not a vegetarian. Indeed there's no dish with meat, but it tastes really good! The waiter (owner?) expressed an unstressed and friendly attitude :-) Highly recommended.

Unfortunately they didn't have any gluten free for just a coffee break but we had some great milkshakes and some sort of health shake which was a great afternoon refill of energy. Great Wireless, awesome atmosphere inside and the staff was absolutely great.

As a vegetarian, I really enjoyed having simple nutritious food and an icy cold beer. More so, the atmosphere was really enjoyable. Quirky, cool and relaxed.

A little expensive by HK standards but you are paying for the location - sleepy island and hippy ambience. That said the cakes were pretty good.
