Breakfast is so underrated! Start your day eating a healthy acai bowl or a crispy croissant because you deserve it
Lovers of eggs, pancakes, waffles and avocado toasts, we have scoured the city high and low for the best cafes in Hong Kong to drink coffee and indulge yourself (including dog-friendly cafes). Whether you’re looking to fuel up post-workout or just want some alone time with your perfectly-cooked eggs Benedict, here is where you want to eat breakfast in Hong Kong.
Where to eat breakfast in Hong Kong
Wondering where to eat breakfast in Hong Kong? This list will have you sorted before the toast is done.
Our favourite places to have breakfast in Hong Kong, Catch is all about large portions of wonderful breakfast food. We love the Dirty Eggs that feature fried eggs, paprika potatoes, avocado and chipotle mayo ($148), and you can’t go passed the Big Bad Ben, complete with poached eggs, bacon, avocado, chorizo and hash browns ($158). The food at Catch is all made with love, but you’ll have to wait until the weekends, as it only does breakfast from 9am on Saturdays and Sundays.

Elephant Grounds has locations around the city, and makes breakfast treats that will have you full and happy in no time. All totally Instagram-worthy, try the Spinach Mushroom Omelette ($85), heavenly Peanut Butter Toast with caramelised bananas ($65) or keep it healthy with an Acai Bowl ($85). Don’t forget to try one of their coffees or matcha lattes too. Breakfast in Hong Kong doesn’t get much better.

Noc Coffee Co.
We are madly in love with Noc, especially as it’s just around the corner from our office! These guys do an amazing coffee, even with soy milk, and you will want to accompany that with some of their gorgeous avocado toast, that doesn’t skimp on the good stuff. Noc is open from 8am and has branches across the city that serve some of the tastiest breakfast in Hong Kong.

The Cupping Room
The Cupping Room in Sheung Wan does a really good breakfast, and we are particularly partial to their house home-cured salmon and egg dishes. Avocado toast fans will love what they’re offering, and we hear the French Toast is spot on. They’re open from 8am on weekdays and 9am on weekends.
