GR8 Café offers coffee and quality Japanese cuisine on Tseung Kwan O Promenade. Its wooden interior brings cosiness to your harbourside retreat, and the food and drink are as good as the ocean views from its seats. Signatures include the crab roe spaghetti and honey lemon lobster bun. Apart from coffee staples, GR8 also serves loose-leaf teas; the spring flush milk white peony is a favourite for its rare appearance in cafés.

Café Haahim is the ultimate café for those looking to sit back and chill. It’s all in the name of the café—哈欠 (haa1 him3), which means “yawning” in written Chinese. Expect a cosy environment when you enter the café and try out the keto cakes and tarts along with a hot cup of coffee. If you’re looking for something more filling to while away the afternoon, the ma la shredded chicken bagel sandwich is a foolproof option.
