    Coffee is ok. The Rock On Ice cream mixed with real peanut butter keeps me going back to this place. Yum!

    Nice ice-cream, but they chrg $5/spoon if you ask for more! Typical HK "service" by telling you this is their policy. They could have said it is their green policy & offer steel spoon as alternative.

    Overrated dessert shop. Waffles are pre-made and warmed later making it taste like cardboard. Better off without dessert than to settle for compromised dessert.

    Awesome service and a fine siphon brewed coffee. Solid WiFi too. No drip or French Press coffee here. I'd pass on the chocolate muffin. Music sappy for my picky American ears, but I'm nitpicking now.

    Gelato is way too sweet! I ask for brownie topping and they destroy a small piece into the ice cream so it's just crumbs - what a shame! Coffee and the space is what saves this place!

    One of the best places for espresso & freshly roasted coffee beans in HK. Avoid the lunchtime rush where they disable the free WiFi (12-2pm I think).

    Good coffee that's served at the right temperature (i.e. not scalding hot). They also serve the (in)famous Kopi Lewak for HK$200 a cup if you're so inclined to try it.
