    Cold brew is great. Wifi is very slow but otherwise a decent place to work.

    Adorable little cafe with great coffee. Hardly any seating though. Be prepared to get take away.

    Great meatballs. Come for the set lunch menu if you don't mind paying a little extra, the pasta portions are filling. The hot beverages aren't quite hot enough. Closer to lukewarm beverages....

    "Flat White" is very good and the prices of drinks and foods are reasonable. For coffee, buy 10 drinks can get 1 free.

    Melbourne style flat whites! One of the very rare cafes in hk where they serve the real thing. Best coffee on the island. :)

    As the name suggests, the baristas here make a great coffee (cappuccino is always a must for me on each visit!) Food items on lé menu is done well (I recommend the carbonara) + pick a piece of cake!

    If you are in need of wifi, you might be able to access some providers present in McCafe next door.

    The espresso base coffee is good here.. But the key lime cheesecake had no key Lime taste in it whatsoever.. A bit disappointing...

    Not many places know of or make a piccolo latte (basically a latte w half the milk). A great way to enjoy a stronger drink w less liquid, especially of you're having more than one a day!
