For the passionate coffee enthusiast, CoHee is a favorite spot to visit in the new Territories as they roast their own coffee, sell an impressive range of coffee equipment, and host workshops and courses. The cafe takes inspiration from Japanese aesthetics and mindfulness in the small details. The cafe was named after the Japanese word for coffee (CoHee), because of its mission to offer the highest quality coffee driven by the pursuit of perfection. It’s a small coffee shop with a clean, minimal design and bar-style seating.
Hidden Coffee Hong Kong is passionate about specialty coffee, hoping to excite customers and inspire them to explore different beans, roasts, and brewing methods.

When you go for a visit, you can really experience their passion when you taste a cup of their expert roasted and brewed lattes.

The Lofé’ Plus slogan really gives you a taste of what your experience will be like when you visit; music + coffee = life.

With a full menu of delicious breakfast and lunch meals, Whitewood coffee gives you more than just a specialty coffee experience. We love the earthy interior with the soft greens and lots of wooden accents, and the ‘family-owned’ feeling is palpable when you come in and be greeted by the friendly staff. They also focus on sustainability, sourcing their coffee from single farms and estates and serving homemade bread and sweets. If you’re looking for a space to host a party or an event, you can also reserve the whole shop, too.
This one is for the sweet tooths out there who love ice cream and coffee - especially when served together! You can get gelato and a soft serve on its own here, as well as nicely paired coffee on the side. If you really want to bring your love of these two delights together, we recommend the ice cream and coffee combos that add coffee to the silky smooth rich ice cream and chocolatey treats. The menu is big and they’ve got tons of specials all of the time, so it’s best to check out their Facebook page to drool over their options.
With a name like that, you’re going to remember this cafe for its unique take on coffee culture. Their brand design is all about modern, sleek, black and white accents, as shown in their photos and their shop interior. Just like many serious coffee culture cafes, this is the type of place where coffee is seen as an art form, and as you sip on your brew, you can admire the local artworks on the walls, too. Don’t forget to try some of the snacks as well as the artisanal coffee, like the seasonal moon cakes and fudge cakes.
