After shopping at Jardine’s Bazaar, we stopped over at this small and well hidden café for a afternoon tea break.
There are many cakes and pastries on display. Everything looks so delicious!
The signature Zoe (HKD$30+/SGD$5.40+) is actually named after the owner. This is the birthday cake for Zoe’s 18th birthday. The mousse is very light and smooth and the crispy biscuit base gives it a nice texture.
The staff recommended 1459 (HKD$30+/SGD$5.40+) which is a mille fouille. Apparently, there are 1459 layers of thin puff pastry sheets sandwiching the custard cream in between. I’m quite skeptical about the 1459 layers but nevertheless, this is good!
Likewise, my dad’s Macchiato (HKD$33+/SGD$6+) looks cute. Both coffees are freshly brewed and taste very strong and bitter.
The cafe was packed when we were there.
To say that the food and drinks come in tiny sizes is an understatement. For the prices paid, I expected a little more. The quality is certainly high enough but the quantity really leaves much to be desired. Nontheless, I think the cakes here are really fantastic and it’s hard to find such good western desserts in Hong Kong.
