Besides being the dim sum and roast goose capital of the world, Hong Kong is a city that boasts a dynamic and thriving coffee scene. Coffee shops have been sprouting all over the country at an alarming rate but they go well beyond just places that sell coffee.
From quirky aesthetics, hip spaces to some playful, never-before-seen creations, the coffee culture in Hong Kong has dramatically reshaped itself since the early days of Starbucks.
If you are a coffee fanatic like us who travel around the world in search of the best brews, or simply someone hankering for a morning cuppa before you begin your day proper here is our list of 18 coffee shops in Hong Kong’s Central & Sheung Wan district.
Out of the numerous coffee shops in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong, Halfway Coffee stands out for its excellent coffee served in vintage porcelain cups.
