With branches in both Tai Hang and Central, Fineprint is a top spot to get some tasty breakfast. Open from 6am on weekdays and 8am on weekends, it’s a great location for a pre-work fix or a long weekend catch up. The avocado and salmon toast with harissa is damn good, and this crew makes some of the best coffee in town – hands down.

One of 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.

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.
