  • BREAKFAST: Brew Bros

    Brew Bros’ second location near HKU manages to make something as typical as toast both aesthetically exquisite, as well as divinely delicious. Go for the ever so trendy poached egg & smashed avocado combo, or try out some of their inventive options, like earl grey tea cured salmon & scrambled egg. You're sure to be pleasantly surprised no matter what you order.


    Brew Bros, No. 53, Hill Road, Hong Kong, +852 2803 2323,

  • DESSERT: Flipper's

    Soufflé pancakes have been huge in Hong Kong for months now, but the arrival of Japan’s famous Flipper’s is changing the game. Their Kiseki Pancake is made with eggs and milk straight from Japan, served with homemade maple syrup and Hokkaido cream. If your little one has a sweet tooth and a love for all things soft and fluffy, you’re going to have to be prepared to grab a ticket and wait in line. Try their limited edition Honeydew Melon pancake—light & fresh and perfect for summer, or opt for the classic berries, green tea, or caramelized banana options.

    If you’re itching for a little culinary adventure on your next date night, Tokyolima is calling your name! Go for Anticuchos (Pervuian street food skewers), Tokyolima rolls from the Nikkei Sushi Bar, or pick from their range of seafood & meat options. If you’re feeling especially adventurous, go for the “Please Chef Feed Me” option for a hands-off surprise. For a gathering with the gals, you can also pop by weekends and public holidays for brunch: enjoy a selection of the very best, including a raw bar and dessert platter over a free flow of drinks.

    Tsuta, Shop 2, G/F, 18 Tang Lung Street, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong,

  • BREAKFAST: Catch

    Catch only opens early on the weekend, so make sure to drop by this Aussie-inspired café for their yummy brekky options, like the Smoothie Bowl, Summer French Toast or HK Scramble. It’s a bright, airy place-- perfect for a Saturday morning wake-up call, and they also do fresh juices and smoothies.


    Catch, G/F, 95 Catchick St, Kennedy Town, Hong Kong, +852 2855 1289,

  • BRUNCH: Whitewood Coffee

    Whitewood Coffee’s décor is minimalistic, all marble tables and gold wire chairs, and their prices are unbeatable—you’ll be able to feed the whole family for under HK$200. They're the first place in HK to serve charcoal coffee, and they also do a charcoal toast (with fluffy scrambled eggs) and soufflé pancakes. There's not a table here without a child or two, so they must be doing something right on the kid-friendly front.


    Whitewood Coffee, Shop 207, 2/F, Kings Wing Plaza 1, 3 On Kwan Street, Sha Tin, Hong Kong, +852 9210 4874,

  • DINNER: Okonomiyaki Dohtonbori

    Head here with your young budding chef(s), where everything is DIY. Ingredients come in a bowl, and from there on, you're in charge of mixing, flipping, and adding toppings. Not to worry, as you'll be provided with verbal instructions, as well as a visual guide with plenty of photos and links to video tutorials, and a timer to make sure that you don't overcook anything. If you're still scared of messing up, you can ask a staff member to cook for you, but where's the fun in that? There are plenty of okonomiyaki variations to choose from, like cheese, mochi, seafood, veggie, or yakisoba. End the meal on a sweet note by making your own crepes. Tip: remember to book a table beforehand!


    Okonomiyaki Dohtonbori, Shop 210, 2/F, K11 Art Mall, 18 Hanoi Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong, +852 3468 2264,

  • SNACK: Japan Toast

    Savory toasts jam-packed with filling—this place doesn’t skimp on ingredients. It's the perfect pit-stop for a quick snack any time of the day. You can find pretty much anything you’d want in a sandwich, all for under HK$40, from Grilled Eel & Tamogayaki to Shrimp & Crab Salad.


    Japan Toast, Shop 3030, 3/F, Macau Plaza, Shun Tak Center, 168-200 Connaught Road Central, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong, +852 3586 0122,

  • DATE NIGHT: Dockyard

    Dockyard, the Gourmet Food Hall located in Kerry Hotel, is essentially the fanciest food court you’ll ever visit. Don't spend date night bickering over what cuisine to have here, you can grab bites from all over Asia: Vietnamese, Thai, Indian, Japanese, and Korean, as well as freakshakes and cakes you’ll go gaga for. It's spacious indoors, with a variety of seating areas, as well as foosball and air hockey tables, or you can grab a drink from the bar and head outside to admire HK's beautiful skyline. It’s a relaxed dining experience that’s fun and atmospheric, without breaking the bank. Tip: visit on Thursdays, Fridays, or Saturdays for live music.


    Dockyard, Level 1, 38 Hung Luen Road, Hung Hom Bay, Kowloon, Hong Kong, +852 2252 5228,

  • LUNCH: Seoulmate Cafe

    This much-loved spot recently moved from its Sai Ying Pun location to Causeway Bay. They've kept up their image of food that looks and tastes good, like their bibimbap (made with black truffle, smoked salmon, and lava egg, forming layers of a cylinder) and new dishes like Cloud Meringue Kimchi Fried Rice (a fluffy white cloud with a smiley face, revealing piping hot kimchi rice once you ruthlessly cut it open). It's roomy indoors, with a special tatami corner, but come on a nice day and have your meal on the patio, with a swinging bench and plenty of space for the kids to run around.


    Seoulmate Cafe, 4/F, Kyoto Plaza, 491-499 Lockhart Road, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, +852 2104 6788,
