    Good coffee. Quiet place with quiet music. Thank you.

    They do proper flat white here. What makes the flat white different to a latte? Try to order both. Then try flat white elsewhere, you will find most places serve you a small size latte instead.

    The coffee here is good. Different varietals. The food is a bit average though.

    Nice chilled cafe with great coffee. Really well made cappuccino & iced coffee. Quieter & more chilled than Cupping Room round the corner, smaller but at least you can hear yourself think.

    Again overpriced HK fails to deliver. Coffee geek kinda vibe. Caution: hipsters approaching. For bean quality Winston is better.

    The panama pourover is not bad, but at HKD75, I think I'm spoilt by rates at home.

    What's this here about good coffee? Beans are good, but the barista technique is seriously awful and incredibly inconsistent. Expecting New York or Seattle quality? Go to Cupping Room.

    Came to try after hearing all the raves about their coffee. Wasn't as impressed. Not a comfy cozy cafe. Tho i think they give talks about coffee upstairs and sell many related items.

    Watery latte, lacking flavours or special note to taste. It is cheap that's a plus. Don't believe the hype.

    It is small. Sit at the four-stool bar and chat up the baristas, tossing around words and phrases like "nuttiness", "earthy tones", and "notes of chocolate". $28 for a single-origin drip coffee.

    Great coffee my fav is the piccolo. But pastas not much to rave about. 5 little prawns with penne for $90 and the taste was so-so.

    Hong Kong is far too small and rent too high for you to clog the tiny cafes with your laptop loafing. Facebook in your hotel.

    They really don't want us sitting here w our computers! Wifi password is, somewhat passive aggressively, 20-mins-only! True to form, they turned off the switch after 20 mins. Coffee is good tho!

    Ask for a Cortado. Not on the menu, but a great afternoon coffee. Less steamed milk than a cappuccino, but more than an espresso macchiato.

    Lol@Evelyn's tip. OMG strangers! A HKers worst nightmare! Fear! Loathing! It's a neighbourhood cafe guys, not the Mandarin Oriental. Don't be wankers trying to make reservations.

    The iced drip coffee is great, but it packs a punch. Try it black for the best flavour.

    Not only do they make great coffee in just about every style you can imagine, but they sell selected coffee and even green beans for those avid caffeine-addicts who cook in their own home labs. Read more

    Espresso-based coffees made with great care, but if you like your coffees strong, ask for a double shot. Interesting special blends of the day too.
