Whiskers N Paws, the established pet supplies store and salon, is introducing a brand-new pet grooming café to The Lohas! Collaborating with Cupping Room Coffee Roasters, this latest concept not only provides on-site grooming services for pet customers in an adorable, space-themed room, but also high-quality coffee and food offerings for pet parents to enjoy while waiting for their furry babies to finish their grooming session. Highlights include irresistible sourdough toasts topped with avocado chicken or fig and hazelnut.
If your furry friend seems a little apprehensive post-grooming, brighten them up with pet-friendly snacks and happy meals. Both the chicken and pumpkin and salmon and mushroom meals come with pet-friendly chocolate cookies and vegan coconut ice cream. A range of pet products are also available for purchase, making this the perfect one-stop shop.

Popular cake boutique Vive has recently extended its ventures on Gough Street. The new café specialises in a selection of coffees, drinks, delicious food, and irresistible desserts. We particularly enjoyed the avocado toast with bacon, poached egg, and Hollandaise, fish and chips with salted egg mayo, and uni mentaiko pasta, while the pistachio tiramisu and Thai milk tea chiffon are unmissable items on the menu.

Soft-opening in Wan Chai, Yeaffee is a quaint coffee shop located along bustling Lockhart Road, recognisable by its calligraphic logo depicting a steaming cup of coffee on legs paired with the pirate flag from the popular Japanese manga and anime One Piece. Currently, there are only three items on the menu: white, black, and a mysterious “others.” Let the owner know your tasting preferences and they will hand-brew the perfect cup for you!

Triple Café has only recently popped up in Tai Po, but it has already gained a steady following. If you’re not a morning person, Triple is the café for you, as its lunch and dinner periods have proven to be the café’s best. Apart from a delicious and refreshing cup of joe, Triple Café also serves a selection of filling pasta, risotto, burgers, pizzas, and even steak. Trust us, this is one worth travelling to.

The Site opened in late February of this year, but its growing popularity in the Prince Edward neighbourhood made it a just inclusion in this month’s column. Serving a variety of coffees, cakes, pastries, and mains, this is the site to be, anytime in the day. Favourites include the rose latte and tofu cheesecake, and the all-day breakfasts are praised for their portions. The Site’s toasts strike a perfect balance between fluffiness and crunch.
