Need a coffee break? Read on for the best cafes in Causeway Bay.
1. Passepartout Brunch and Coffee
Passepartout’s modern blue walls and English-inspired interiors may catch your eye, but it’s the food and coffee that’ll make you stay. The five brunch dishes, each named after different cities around the world, have been all the rage, especially the Calcutta, which consists of crispy butter chicken, slaw and masala waffles. If you’re looking for something a little less filling, Passepartout’s baked goods will be ideal. You can complement those with the cafe’s special miso caramel latte–and don’t forget to keep an eye out for some fancy latte art!
Passepartout Brunch and Coffee, Shop 2, G/F, Chung Wai Commercial Building, 447-449 Lockhart Road, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, p. 2882 0828, 銅鑼灣駱克道447-449號中威商業大廈地下2號舖
Private room dining with coffee and cocktails, plus Netflix AND karaoke?! Yep, you read that right–Cosmos has all of this in one place. Managed by the local karaoke company RedMR, Cosmos aims to overturn the negative impressions of karaoke (you know, the dark and dingy rooms with mediocre food?), and to deliver an exclusive culinary experience to its guests. In their bright, pastel-themed rooms, you’ll be able to belt your hearts out while digging into some scrumptious dishes. Take your pick from teriyaki steak donburi to slow-cooked Norwegian salmon fillet, with a variety of coffee, tea, wines and special cocktails to match.

3. Ninetys Roastery
The Ninetys franchise is no stranger to cafe-hoppers in Hong Kong, but at its Roastery, you’ll get to enjoy brewed coffees made from their freshly roasted beans too. Sourcing premium java beans from around the world, the professional baristas at Ninetys Roastery’s have recently redesigned their Fruity Blend. This new blend gives out aromas of jasmine, with hints of pineapple, vanilla, and toffee to finish. To pair with the coffee, go for their equally impressive light bites, like the salmon tartare and crab benedict.
Ninetys Roastery, Shop 116, 1/F, Lee Garden Two, 28 Yun Ping Road, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, p. 2167 8684, 銅鑼灣恩平道28號利園二期1樓116號舖
4. Séan Cafe & Lounge
If you’re a fan of dreamy, floral-themed cafes, this one’s for you. Decorated with pink blooms, chandeliers and marble tables, Séan Cafe & Lounge is the perfect place for cute dates and small gatherings (and, of course, Instagram stories). While some menu items, such as the cherry blossom pancakes and rose latte, are infused or embellished with flowers to go along with the cafe’s concept, other dishes are popular too. Have a go at the English breakfast, tiramisu pancakes, or the delicately hand-painted macarons.

5. The Coffeeology
From matcha lattes and matcha cheesecakes to matcha salmon pasta, The Coffeeology is not to be missed for those of you who are mad for matcha. Alternatively, opt for the cafe’s linguine and salads, or kickstart your morning with the breakfast combo, which includes a pastry, creamy scrambled eggs, along with a coffee. The Coffeeology’s cold brews are also a crowd favourite–ideal for those who need a cool-down after all the shopping.

Customised latte art? Sign us up! Whether it’s the adorable Sumikko Gurashi or Studio Ghibli characters, or a 3D teddy bear chillin’ in the coffee, the talented baristas at Sleepless are simply the experts when it comes to hand-crafted lattes. If you’re hungry, you can try the popular smoked salmon and mentaiko risotto, chicken wings with grapefruit and honey citrus sauce, or choose between the large selection of pastas, salads and seafood.

7. Vivienne Westwood Cafe
Punk and classy, Vivienne Westwood has been one of the biggest names in the global fashion industry since the ‘70s. If you’d like to pay tribute to this legendary designer, head to Vivienne Westwood Cafe, where you can enjoy the signature three-tier tea set while taking in the Westwood-style deco. Although some items featured in the high tea change seasonally (drop by now for wagyu katsu sandwiches and summer fruit tarts), staples such as scones, teas, English breakfasts and other mains are also worth checking out.
