Food is generally good but nothing out of the world. Had the french toast set which was supposed to be award-winning but didn't taste that impressive.

Our first meal in Hong Kong, recommended by our concierge at the nearby Royal Plaza Hotel. Soaked in the ambience and enjoyed the simple fare. Waitress was friendly and recommended that our teenagers try the signature pineapple bun and French toast. It was delightful. Kudos!

Had brunch here on Tuesday around 11am. Their famous pineapple bun with butter is very good! The HK style French toast is good too. But I would skip the pork chop sandwich though. Need to come back for thei egg tarts!

High turnover for seats and expect speedy table clearing! The staff just clear your unfinished food without checking! Affordable breakfast and a bit overrated for their famous Polo Buns! Recommend to order their Milk Tea, French Toast and Egg Tart.

I went there for breakfast after seeing all those positive review. Ordered the pineapple bun and it was by far the worst I’ve had in hk. The crust was hard and the bun wasn’t fluffy. I also ordered their signature coffee and it was really...More
