Newly opened in the quaint village of Tai Mei Tuk is Tamora, a three-storey café sporting a spacious and open design reminiscent of coffee shops found on South Korea’s volcanic Jeju Island—not something you get to see every day in Hong Kong! Visitors will arrive to find ample space to relax and unwind in, with nature within reach. For drinks, order a cup of latte, matcha latte, or sample across the selection of Jeju teas. Currently for food, Tamora only offers croffles with matcha and chocolate flavours, but more desserts and all-day brunches will soon be added to the menu!

Root Down

This new wood-inspired café is an added boost to Sai Ying Pun’s diverse and vibrant café scene. Root Down has a laid-back atmosphere and patrons will feel at one with their surroundings while lounging under the indoor skylights. Apart from coffee, Root Down offers light bites such as sandwiches and pastries, making this the perfect mid-day stop.

Fleuria Fleuriste & Café

Newly opened in Pacific Place is Fleuria, a flower-themed café and florist. Originally a humble flower atelier selling vibrant fresh blooms in Lai Chi Kok, this latest café venture stays true to the florist’s roots, offering patrons a one-stop shop for coffee and fresh flowers. For coffee and snacks, expect the usual coffee orders, espresso martinis, and delectable desserts when visiting Fleuria.
