Best Coffee Shops in Central
38 Caine Road
More than just a coffee shop, this boulangerie, surrounded by soaring residential towers, is perfect for before or after your morning workout. They open 7am Mondays to Fridays and 7.30pm on the weekends and on public holidays. Rub elbows with the gym and yoga denizens, or with tourists on their way up to the Peak. Coffee is buy one get one free; so are croissants and cookies. What else could you ask for?
G/F Two Chinachem Plaza, 68 Connaught Road
A popular spot for coffee and pastries amongst Central worker bees, all products sold in À La Bakery are from France. This ensures high-quality gourmet bread and pastries, made even more refined with French AOP certified butter, subtly balanced to ensure intense flavours. Trivia time. Did you know that A La Bakery was founded by popular broadcaster Robert Chua Wah-Peng (蔡和平)? Now you do.
S106, PMQ, 35 Aberdeen Street
Housed within PMQ – the redeveloped architectural gem that has become home to HK’s creative types – Cafe Life is a cozy, little nook perfect for taking a break in between design hunting and graffiti spotting. The coffee here is surprisingly intense and roast-y, with a slight bitter edge. Go here for a midday pick-me-up, and do indulge in a slice of cake or two. This underrated gem just might become your new, favourite hangout.
111 Caine Road
If you’re a coffee geek, you’ll love this place. Outside is a blackboard sign that says, “She’s a strong cup of coffee in a world drunk on cheap wine.” Inside – but barely – is a beast of a roasting machine. Coffee beans are roasted fresh onsite, and it’s a sight to behold. Cherish every cup of brew handcrafted especially for you, which may come with a java jacket that says, “Cover me up I’m just too hot.” This is coffee as an awesome visual and sensory experience.
G/F, Chung Shan House, 8-10 Gough Street
This is for the creature of leisure. Gough Street is loosely known as Hong Kong’s WeHo for its strip of noteworthy restaurants, design showrooms, and of course coffee shops. b. YOURSELF CAFE by agnes b. offers French-inspired, grab-and-go, gourmet food and drinks. They also have a charming, pet-friendly outdoor seating area where you may watch HK’s hustle and bustle pass you by, from a front row seat.
