Hong Kong: Coffee & Chill?

Living a hustle and bustle city like Hong Kong, at times you will wish to have some silent moments; especially a spot to chill with friends and family/ curl up and escape into a literary world. But oftentimes the cafe scene in Hong Kong are crowded due to the limited space, in which it can all get a bit suffocating. Everybody- specially on weekends will be out and hungry. So, here are the chillax hidden spots I highly recommend you to check it out!

1.Hit the Road
Perched on the 15th floor of the building, this spacious minimalist café gets plenty of natural light, whereby also a place for those who love Scandinavian style. It is a good spot for you to wind down and escape from the crowds in Causeway Bay. They serve all kind of drinks- from coffee to specialities, such as lazy aloha is a mixture of frozen watermelon/grapefruit juice/mango that kinda bring a hint of summer in the air. Speaking frankly, this café has became my favourite go to in Hong Kong; either get a cuppa or rest your mind.

Still House
2.A space to unwind yourself " - words that well described the theme of Still House . It is like an oasis in the city, because the interior is filled with plants which gives the place an extra sense of peacefulness. The cafe offers drip coffee, tea and cake, by which make it a great place to have afternoon tea.

3. Halfway coffee
Strolling around the streets in Central, you will often surprised by the unnoticed restaurants in the alleys. Halfway coffee is one of em'. It is easy to bypass this tiny cafe that hidden in one of the alleys, surrounded by vintage/ thrift antique shops.

Sitting there during lunch time, I saw white collars have stopped by to grab a quick lunch/ busy strangers catch up with each other/ instragrammers at work. Food here is not like the other cafe around, I personally like the presentation of food that remind me a lil of brunch scene in Australia. Even though the space wasn't that spacious, but there is something I like about this place.

4. Potato Head Hong Kong
Often time in Central it is quite hard to find a reticent place to have conversation over coffee / brunch, especially during weekends. All the cafes or restaurant will be burst out with brunch eaters. Potato head HK is comparatively spacious to the other places around the city centre. It's a warm and cozy experience, a beautiful setting and a friendly staff that will make sure you are fed and satisfied. Drop by to grab some refreshing tropical cocktails and experience the Bali-ness culture here.

p/s: They play good music here. @ lamfungfrances @ wenniiiee e 

5. Commissary
The interior is reminiscent of 60s and 70s American design, while lighting is mild and soft, with warm earthy tones and large colourful paintings on the walls, accented with pots of greenery spread across floor-to-ceiling shelves near the kitchen.

Serving Southern California life and cuisine, Commissary's signatures that feature familiar comfort food - avocado toast, fish tacos, burgers and steaks etc. Get a seat outdoor and enjoy some sun bathing session on a sunny morning.

6. 3/3rds
3/3rds is located at Wong Chuk Hang, a sedate industrial area during weekends. It gave out a sense of home when I first stepped in, and it's pet friendly.

Whether you’re after top-quality wholesome food or comfort food, 3/3rds has it all- especially the pizzas here are amazing (thin crispy crust). Highly suggest if you feel like escaping the crowds in Central or Causeway Bay, this quaint cafe is definitely the place.

7. Chillazy 'Chillazy' is a spacious hammock lounge, strategically located in one of the most convenient industrial buildings at Kwun Tong. However this is not a typical cafe that we thought of, as the whole concept is a place for busy/tired people to rest. You can act like your own home. After lying or chilling for a long time, there are self-service hot drinks and snack bar for you to refresh, also you are encourage to bring you own food. Whether it is after work or weekend, alone or with friends- here is the place for you to pass the time. Let's chillax at Chillazy. @chillazyhk

8. Bound By Hillywood
A few minutes walk away from the Prince Edward station, you will find this vintage/ hipster cafe located in an area out of your expectation. With an interior lit like a nightclub in neon shades of blue and pink, this is not only a great place to get a good cup of joe and learn more about coffee with knowledgeable owner Nathan but also a contender for nighttime drinkies. They also play a wide rage of alternative music, it would be a paradise for indie music lovers.
