    This is my favourite spot in the IFC. I always get their smoothies - my favourite being blueberry or green apple. It's so refreshing and not very sweet and satisfying after a bit of walking around.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Best ice latte based drinks-locally roasted beans-double shots by default - excellent Wega espresso machine. Use a dedicated bean for espresso. Excellent sea view. Some other simplylife not as good.

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

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

    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.

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

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

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

    Good place to chill with a good view over the central ferry terminal on a fine day.

    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.
