Hongkongers are cafe people. We’re constantly looking out for the best cafes in Hong Kong. We love catching up with mates on a weekend morning over eggs, cakes and crusty artisanal sourdough. But cafés aren’t just for weekends. Hong Kong is powered by caffeine, and many depend on a reliable go-to barista for a double shot.

So, we’ve done the ground research and found the best cafes to check out every month if you’re jonesing for a fun new vibe. So, whether it’s a quick caffeinated catch-up, an indulgent hangover fix, or a workday coffee stop, these are the best new cafes in Hong Kong worth trying.

From the minimalistic décor to the massive windows, t.w.i.g. is perfect if you’re looking for a leisurely break. There’re many exclusive blends on offer, but Salted Lotus Latte is our favourite. The waffle sandwiches, Caprese and Western Pulled Pork perfectly complement the blends. Also, indulge in the delicate goodness of their Strawberry Shortcake and Genmaicha Basque Cheesecake. Just brilliant.
