    The Cofee Academïcs

    Yes, with an ï. The coffee could be the best in town, Fuel permitting, and the food is pretty good (the avo and chicken toast is chef’s kiss). The location in DB, although remote, has plenty of seating, and there are always dogs waiting outside, which is a plus. 4.5 out of 5 stars.

  • TGIF


    A pretty large coffee shop (for HK standards). All day breakfast looks very nice, but there is something called Cjocolate Cravings that I would kill for. And the coffee is great. Aircon is set to freezing though, which is very Hong Kong. 4.5 out of 5 stars

  • Espresso Remedy

    Espresso Remedy

    A hole in the wall kind of shop, with a couple of benches next the wall in a pretty steep down slope. Very Hong Kong. The coffe is great. The spot is particularly good for people watching. 4 stars out of 5.

  • Blue Bottle, HK

    Blue Bottle, HK

    Yes, this Blue Bottle. There are three locations in HK, the one next to the mid-levels escalator and, in particular, the one in Wanchai are personal favorites. Coffee is good, the avocado toast is bordering great. 4.5 of of 5 starts.

  • NOC, HK

    NOC, HK

    Second only to Fuel, the coffee is slight less awesome, but the food is really good. The combo flat white and toffee croissant cube is ? 4.5 out of five stars

  • Fuel Espresso, HK

    Fuel Espresso, HK

    The density of Starbucks stores in HK is far from reaching critical mass like in some North American cities (I’m looking at you, Vancouver) but it is fair to say that there are a lot of mediocre coffee outlets around here. Good coffee is hard to come by, great coffee is even harder to find.…
