All coffee lovers must have heard of the famous Omotesando Koffee in Tokyo. What was meant to be a pop-up store at a tiny, traditional Japanese house in Omotesando’s residential area ended up lasting for an extended period of five whopping years.
Name of its novelty spread far and wide – even tourists were making special trips to check out Omotesando Koffee.
Sadly, Tokyo’s famous Omotesando Koffee’s has shut its doors approximately half a year ago. But that is not the end of the beloved coffee brand. There are now a few outlets across Japan and the hipster coffee shop has too recently opened its very first international outpost in Wan Chai, Hong Kong. Hong Kongers you guys have no idea how jealous we are!
Fans of Omotesando Koffee can look forward to the specialty coffee bar’s high quality espresso-based beverages and baked custard cubes at Hong Kong’s outlet. Consistency remains top-notch as founder Eiichi Kunimoto has relocated to Hong Kong for this overseas outpost too.
However, the ambience of the Hong Kong-based coffee shop is clearly a world apart from the original store. Instead of being housed in an age-old traditional Japanese home, Hong Kong’s Omotesando Koffee is located within a shopping complex alongside other lifestyle and F&B brands.
Nonetheless, good coffee makes up for it all. We look forward to visiting Omotesando Koffee when we next visit Hong Kong!
