10 Cafes in Hong Kong

Cafes in Hong Kong

The coffee trend in Hong Kong is starting to catch up, and there are quite a number of independently owned cafes that are hip and trendy. During my recent trip, I had the chance to visit many of them, and here’s a list of cafes and coffee places in Hong Kong that are worth checking out.

I hope that this list will be useful to you when you are visiting the city. And if you have more places to add to the list, please leave a comment and let us know.

Cafe Corridor

Cafe Corridor by Coffee Assembly Roastery is strategically located opposite Times Square in Causeway Bay. They serve food like all day breakfast (HKS$65), sandwiches (HK$45), and French toast (HK$45), but what regulars come back for is the excellent coffee. It is a spot where executives meet clients over coffee, or visitors taking a break in between shopping.

Whenever we hear about a new café, it is more often than not a coffee speciality house. Yet, Teakha at Sheung Wan chose a different path which offers the world an impressive range of organic tea like Masala Chai, Thai iced tea, Jasmine Blossoms, and Hoji au Lait, and Forest Black Tea.

This tea specialist is housed in a little shophouse on a quiet alley off Tai Ping Shan Street, which is slowly becoming one of the hippest streets in Hong Kong lined with cafes, galleries, studios and lifestyle boutiques.
