This North Point coffee shop is well-known for their light-roast coffee that comes in a variety of styles. Come here for a bite and coffee because their signature Chef’s Breakfast is a great way to jumpstart your day. While the coffee and brunch was good, I have mixed feelings about their service. If you don’t mind rolling the dice on your service and you just care about the quality of the food and coffee, Brew Note Coffee Roaster is one place you shoulder consider.

For those of you who are staying out in the outer reaches of Hong Kong or enjoy venturing further from your comfort zone, take a peek at Accro Coffee. You can find it in Yuen Long, which is pretty close to the Hong Kong-China Border. For those of you who like to have a relaxing coffee after work or a long bike ride (Yuen Long is a pretty popular biking route), Accro Coffee is great! Just beware of their service, which shouldn’t cause too many problems but they’ve been known to be a little more brazen with their opinions than others.
Address: Shop 8, G/F, Fook Cheong Building, 21-27 Ma Wang Road, Yuen Long
Hours: (Mon-Sun) 12:00 to 00:00
Lov Lov Coffee is a unique coffee shop that allows you to either order a cup of coffee or you can create your very own coffee with their DIY package. The store is half coffee shop, half workshop, and is a popular place for locals to get their coffee fix and to learn how to make a cup of coffee with their very own lattè art! We highly recommend it for the lattè art course, but not so much to just hang out for long periods of time.
Address: Room B, 4/F, On Wah Industrial Building, 41-43 Au Pui Wan Street, Fo Tan
Hours: (Mon-Wed, Fri) 12:00 to 20:00, (Sat-Sun) 12:00 to 17:00

From eggs benedicts to the truffle scrambled eggs, Leisure is a ‘must go’ when you’re feeling ‘brunch’. The owner is very generous with his portions, but we would highly recommend not overstuffing yourself on their all-day breakfast menu. Match your order with a strong green tea latte. Be sure to try their Maple Pancakes with Vanilla Ice Cream to wrap up your brunch experience at Leisure.

Hours: (Mon-Sat) 08:00 to 16:00
