Excellent and fast service from friendly staff. Flat white was well presented. Delicious food (we had breakfast). Decor is modern and trendy. Lengthy menu with something for everyone (both on the hot and cold drink menu). Highly recommended!

Espresso and pour over where on point. Multiple blends and SO to choose from and all prepared meticulously. Highly recommend this place if you are from Melbourne

Ristretto a little more bittter at first than the 18 Grams cafe 1 min away. However, it settles into a great flavor and given the great space with wifi - this is where you would set up for an hour or two of working with reliable coffee.

Good coffee coming from a well-known HK franchise. Baristas are well trained, although every time I got my food before the coffee. Good selection of breakfast and cakes, but poor pastries variety.

It is somehow underrated but it is a good place for a nice cup of coffee. Their single origins are not bad. Enjoyed thoroughly their Kenya.

I passed this great cafe several times heading to Causeway Bay on the tram. Today I decide to stop and was very impressed. The intimate atmosphere is exactly what you are looking for when you want to escape the inner city hustle of Hong Kong. The ambiance and design is very cool and eclectic with small tables and a community bench which is great when you are dining alone. These local guys know exactly what they are doing. I noticed all the usually top end gadgets and gear used to making a variety of coffee variations for the hard core connoisseurs. A brand new Slayer was on the bench and the staff seemed to have a good idea on how to use it (so many barristers simply don't know how to operate these machine). I originally stopped for a latte and decided to enjoy a a meal at the same time. The menu offers a wide selection of western and european meal as well as a fine selection of pastries and sweet goodies. I tried and latte and a croque-monsieur (ham, cheese and egg toasted sandwich) which included curly fries. My latte was OK. I can tell the beans were good and well roasted. Before you judge, I only say this as the milk is sourced from Indonesia and I personally don't like the unusual sweet flavour that asian cows produce it also tastes. The flavour tastes similar to UHT processed milk. They would get a better rating from me if they had sourced a Aussie or NZ milk. Overall the experience was good and I would go back again and this time try a pour over or non milk coffee.
