We stopped by chance after our walk around at the K11. We ordered an iced chai tea latte and a cappuccino. I liked the cappuccino but the chai was the best ever. At least for me and my wife. We will be going back again while in Hong Kong for more cofffee and chai tea.

We went as a family group after dinner at a nearby restaurant and were very favourably impressed with the range of ice creams available. There was something for both adults and children. We had a berry mixture which wasn't too sweet and was full of berries. One of the children had blue vanilla in a cone and the other had... More

Time to kill reveals a Gelaterie/coffee house with all the usual suspects. Nice ambiance and somewhere I'd come again.

Holly brown used to be a local Australian influenced cafe that has gone from boutique to mainstream (aka chain operation). The coffee remains as good, however customer services are not, I am perplexed by the evidentiary lack of passion and attention to detail by staff during my last visit. In this regard, Starbucks may have done better on service front.... More

We ordered the Rouge Symphonie Danish Toast. The combination of the gelato with the Danish Toast was excellent. The gelato itself wouldn't be too sweet and it mixed well with the Danish Toast. Their mint mocha was just nice for me. This shop seems to be lack of manpower. You might need to wait longer for your food to be... More

The range of ice cream flavours are very limited. Overpriced for the amount you get. They serve coffees as well. They have indoor seating. Staff are very unfriendly .

I found the range of ice-cream is limited but they were tasty. This is literally a coffee-shop and the menu is a typical/predictable one.

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
