5 NEW Coffeeshops for BOGOF Brew
Basement, 22 Des Voeux Road Central
Have you ever walked into a Central coffeeshop thinking you’re gonna grab a cuppa and maybe do a bit of work on your laptop – then soon realise it’s too crowded to have a seat and too noisy to concentrate? You won’t have that problem at Coffee Central by Coffee Exchange, firstly, because it occupies 3,200 square feet. Secondly, its basement location means up to now it’s still pretty much under-the-radar. This all-day cafe is perfect for breakfast, brew and more. Try their ginseng coffee for a different, uplifting experience.
Central & Wan Chai
Coffeeshops aren’t really just about coffee anymore. In this case, we’e got a cake salon where you can also enjoy great coffee. Vive Cake Boutique was founded by artist, Vivien Lau, who believes that “The only way to create great things is to love what you create.” The cakes, cupcakes, confectioneries and cookies are all exquisitely handmade. From the pink interiors to the flowers on the wall, this place is a coffee and cake Wonderland.
197A Queen’s Road Central
This cozy nook in Sheung Wan boasts perhaps HK’s best pour over coffee. “Pour over what?” we hear you cry. Let’s explain. Like anything geeky that borders on fanaticism, the pour over method according to the New York Times seems to have originated from Japan. This method requires precision, patience, and most importantly, time. Coffee enthusiasts love it because factors such as taste and strength can be better controlled compared to other brewing methods. If you fancy yourself a coffee hipster and therefore a bit of a coffee snob, don’t just take our word for it. Try it.
9 Kingston Street, Fashion Walk, Causeway Bay
This ambitious cafe aims to be more than just about coffee and tea. In fact the main draw here is craft beer. They explore all types of experiences around craft beer, including music, photography, art and more. Its location in Fashion Walk means its unusual offering of “brew and barrel” is exposed to folks looking for experiences that go beyond the mundane.
Suite 1501-1504, 15th Level, 41 Heung Yip Road, Wong Chuk Hang
Wong Chuk Hang has come a long way from being an industrial district known primarily for factories and warehouses. This cool hangout – coffeeshop by day; bar by night – has patrons from neighbouring galleries or fashion and PR firms. The space is accented with drums, paintings and other artifacts the owner has collected on her travels throughout Africa. Come here if you like your coffee with a whiff of safari. The house brew is from Uganda; it’s highly rated.
