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.
