    This place has been one of the consistently best cafe-bistros in Hong Kong for decades. Wish I could work with such an exceptional team.

    The small salad selection looks like a small box but the staff really pack the four toppings in! Generous portions.

    Very efficient meal for 200+ per person. Harbor view with construction site in between.

    Great lunch location with lots of lunch sets at good price. Scallop with organic rice is delicious, juicy and tasty but the beetroot salad is too chunky and not tasty.

    Mary Ng · August 30, 2015
  • Claudia L.

    Decent food at reasonable price. Booking is a must at peak hours.

    Claudia Li · August 28, 2015

    Great casual lunch place. There's a salad bar and Asian food bar, with a few selections of booze. If you feel slightly luxurious, you can sit in their restaurant part and order from the set menu.

    The food was quite good and reasonable with a wide range of choices. The service was slow. It would be great to see the waitstaff smile once in awhile.

    Average coffee but the place looks great and I dig their sandwiches.

    I like coming here to rest from walking around Central & IFC. Coffee is decent and good pastries for snacking. The tables are usually full but the counter seats have the best view of the harbour.

    The bacon and egg sandwich comes on a crispy ciabatta roll with a slight taste of mustard. It's a quick go breakfast.

    Robert Trio · September 8, 2014
  • John Jonas L.

    Great lunch options here with salad, vege, or even Chinese steam fish and cha siu... etc. you won't be disappointed. The only problem is getting a seat.

    Get here before the workday lunch rush if you want a seat!

    They call eggs Benedict "poached eggs" and they were drenched in sauce- had better

    Alex · February 8, 2014
  • Krist N.

    One of the best places in IFC to sit down, have a cuppa, savor some Danish pastries or sandwiches and just people watch. Definitely a go to place after a long day of shopping!

    Krist N. · December 30, 2013
  • René T.

    All dishes good and fresh. Never had a disappointment here. Staff good but little "too efficient" meaning doing their job but no smiles or personal touches.

    René Theil · November 7, 2013
  • Helena B.

    The squid ink rice is delicious. As are the pastas. Not bad!

    Helena Belmonte · September 18, 2013
  • Nigel O.

    Great food but a little expensive. Nice restaurant/cafe but the staff are unimaginably rude and only attentive to get you out asap

    Nigel O · September 14, 2013

    Too noisy!

    Prime angus burger was undercooked as well as NZ lamb chops:(

    Olga K · February 1, 2013

    French toast and Prime angus burger are recommended!

    Ordered English breakfast but a bit disappointed coz the bacon and toast are burnt...

    More comfortable than starbucks and better food and coffee!

    Andrew Au · December 16, 2011
  • Chloe N.

    Overpriced food, plates are not warm, before you finished your meal, food is already cold. The lamb has no rosemary, the cod is not fresh

    Chloe Nip · December 10, 2011
  • Kath M.

    Get the good seats under the stairs

    Kath Morrison · December 8, 2011
  • Aprilider

    Good communication is just as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after.

    Aprilider · November 28, 2011

    Cant go wrong with any of their pasta and bread items which are customizable. Come after 2pm to avoid the IFC office crowd.

    Pumpkin & Ginger Soup! Best soothing threats after hard work.

    Michele Lai · November 8, 2011
  • Mel A.

    Normally a nice view for lunch but lots of construction going on at the moment. Awesome sandwiches- not sure about the coffee though. Is great if you get a flavored latte but otherwise a bit bland.

    Mel Adams · September 2, 2011
  • Erica F.

    Nice sandwiches and a divine ginger tea with milk and honey!

    Erica Fong · August 29, 2011

    Great pumpkin soup and ham And cheese sandwich. Problem of lack of space for seating at lunch time...

    Surfcity_98 · August 12, 2011

    Caesar Salad is the worst I've ever tried. Lot of lettuce, very little of the rest
