My husband and another person were working here, so we met up with them. We brought in a lot of kids after a morning on the beach. It was really great. The coffee is good (expensive as is all in HK), but the breakfast set...More

It was a quiet afternoon at the beach so few places were busy. Tried this coffee place and chose salads from the relatively limited menu - both quite good. Also tried a pastry/cake they called Coffee Crepe which was very good.
