Best new cafes in Hong Kong: April 2021 edition
Encompassing two floors, this cafe is filled with rustic elements that immediately make us feel at home (or, well, at a barn). Loop Kulture emphasises sustainability, from sourcing organic produce to selling a variety of hand-picked nuts in their cafe, they even take it a step further in delivering dishes garnished with edible flowers (extra points for your Insta game). This quaint pet-friendly cafe is where you’ll find us after work.
Loop Kulture, G/F, 90 Apliu Street, Sham Shui Po, Hong Kong
The Coffee Academics
With about 16 locations across Hong Kong, the folks at The Coffee Academics aren’t resting just yet. Discovery Bay peeps will soon have one more spot to grab quality coffee, and perhaps an addition for a place to work from. The opening date of the new locay is not confirmed yet so keep your eyes peeled for the latest addition to the plaza.
The Coffee Academics has multiple locations in Hong Kong
We don’t know about you, but we’re always up for a cake and coffee combo. Or how about a combination of both? Sole Coffee has taken it an edge further with their basque coffee cheesecake (nom!). The cafe has special cakes made in collaboration with local bakery, Candy’s Gourmet, but if cake is not your cup of tea, perhaps some all-day breakfast? You can expect excellent service, just as long as you don’t pop over on a Wednesday, the cafe operates every other day of the week.
Sole Coffee, Shop 19-20, G/F, Yik Ft Building, 11-15 Fung Yau Street North, Yuen Long, Hong Kong, p. 3705 3120
A new cafe in town no longer simply means you’re getting served some coffee by a brand new team. New cafes have become a whole new experience in itself, whether it be experimenting with fusion coffees and cakes or the sleekest interiors. Until Coffee grabs goer’s attention with its see-through menu and then grabs patrons’ hearts with its service and specialty coffee blends. You can’t miss out on their mocktails while you’re there.
Until Coffee, G/F, On Tin Centre, 1 Sheung Hei Street, San Po Kong, Hong Kong, p. 6015 5409
Basque burnt cheesecakes have undeniably taken the cafe world by storm (we’re not complaining), but the real show stealer of this cafe has to be their earl grey chiffon cake that’s topped with rose petals and pistachios, marking a vibrant colour combo that will have other peeps peeking at your table. The rustic slash bohemian interior is a breath of fresh air, a pleasant little botanical garden if you will. And it’s oh so photogenic and pet-friendly (who can really walk past that bright purple entrance without stepping in for a closer look?).
The cafe is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and they accept cash only.
An Coffee, No.41A, Hang Ha Po Village, Lam Tsuen, Tai Po, Hong Kong

Repulse Bay already houses an array of restaurants and cafes and adding to the neighbourhood is Neighbourhood Coffee (nbhd for short). Their fresh new third location in Hong Kong is the place to chill on the weekend and grab brunch with the pals or fam. We love that they provide oat milk as an alternative to dairy with an addition of $5. Their signature tea – namely Japanese Sencha, apple cinnamon, and rosa oolong are a must-try.
Neighbourhood Coffee, Repulse Bay, G/F, No.35B-4 Beach Road, Repulse Bay, Hong Kong, p. 9500 0051
The Third Bakery
Hooray for a pet-friendly cafe – we love it cause we get to pet random cute and friendly doggos! With some offices switched to work from home, it has become tricky to find quiet places to work, and cafes have become a haven for peeps at the workforce recently. And again – you may spot (and pet) some dogs here which is basically free therapy, folks! Their flan cake is bound to make a great work companion.
FYI, check our full list of dog-friendly cafes here.
The Third Bakery, 38-40 Eastern Street, Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong
Calling all hoomans! Superhooman has got us super pumped with the latest addition in their menu – they’re introducing a peanut butter chocolate latte (yes, you read that right!), and you can easily pair it with one of the many yum treats at Superhooman. Perhaps, the Hojicha tiramisu waffle with mascarpone cheese? Another sweet treat – this cafe is also dog friendly.
Superhooman, G/F, 16 Tsing Fung Street, Tin Hau, Hong Kong, p. 9181 1193
The sleek matte black interior sends us one clear message – they love black at Revol, be it the decor or their coffee. They’re here to explore the diversity and richness of coffee in its unaltered form. They have two single-origin-espresso (SOE), with coffee beans sourced from Peru and Colombia. SOE 1 has more nutty flavours, perfect for the colder seasons, whereas SOE 2 has elderflower, strawberry, and cane sugar.
Revol, Shop No.2, G/F, 206-212 Johnston Road, Wan Chai, Hong Kong, p. 3702 0170
Nestled in the industrial streets of Tsuen Wan is a calm and slow-paced cafe, Bench that offers both indoor and outdoor seatings. We love the little fun they had creating their logo and ambience, it’s unique and has a cosy feel to it. Their apple cinnamon french toast and lemon meringue tart looks hella appetizing, they also serve up some delish brunch.
Bench Cafe, 17 Fu Yung Street, Tsuen Wan, Hong Kong
This mid-century cafe is serving more than just coffee – the Japanese joint is cosy and comfy, and is a great spot for unwinding. The nostalgia that the decor brings in paralleled with its unconventional coffee creations. Maple caffe latte is their signature (hmm, is it a mere coincidence that they’re located in Maple Street?) and the pandan and coconut cake is not something you’re likely to see in local cafes.
Fonji, 5 Maple Street, Prince Edward, Hong Kong (closed on Sundays)
With seasoned barista’s roasting signature blends in-house and crafting unique coffee cocktails, Between takes a unique turn in serving coffee. The design of the cafe is minimalistic yet it has heads turning when walking down the street. They’ve incorporated mixology with coffee (do not sip on this whilst at work) and also have super healthy options (as they call it), in other words, these are vegan friendly with coconut milk, almond milk, or oat milk infused with ingredients like turmeric, sesame, and matcha.
Between, G/F, 248 Queen’s Road East, Wan Chai, Hong Kong, p. 2877 8711

A cafe that serves delicious sparkling espresso, sweet cappuccinos and mochas, Master Room is a hidden gem in Kwun Tong. Other than savouring their carefully crafted beverages and pastries, don’t miss out on their iconic 1.5-metre-long Mahogany table as well as granite walls and tiles made by local craftsmen. Filled with bright natural light and fragrant coffee aroma, Master Room is definitely a great place to sit back and enjoy the day.

A female-led online shopping platform, Womanboss has soft-launched a 3000 sq-ft cafe in Sham Shui Po. Other than enjoying fresh goodies like Matcha Cake ($58) and Sparkling Americano ($40), you can also shop an array of products like soaps, coffee beans and arts. We like that their overall vibe is very chic and modern, plus their art gallery has lots of beautiful displays that will mesmerise you.
Womanboss, 82 Apliu Street, Sham Shui Po, Hong Kong
Filters Lane (Graham Street)
Serving indulgent food, alcohol and coffee, the new Filters Lane on Graham Street is a great hub for all coffee lovers.

Pair your aromatic coffee with their delicious pastries, all-day breakfast or bagels, and you will be all set for the day.
