10 New Breakfast Spots in Hong Kong you need to try!

The Best of Breakfast in Hong Kong

In Hong Kong we are spoiled for choice when it comes to the most important meal of the day and we’ve got so many favourite, tried and tested brekkie spots. However, if you’re looking to try something different, then it’s time to spice it up and use the weekends to explore the latest and greatest of Hong Kong’s growing foodie scene. With so many restaurants opening all over town, we thought we’d bring you the best of the best when it comes to breakfast, as well as some new spots that we love. So without further ado, here are our Top 10 favourite breakfast spots for 2016!

R&R Bagels

New on the block, R&R Bagels have hit the ground running and have quickly become a strong competitor in the league of Hong Kong’s most loved breakfast bites! These little rounds of dough are like cat-nip to us here at Sassy, and we can’t get enough of their awesome flavour combinations. Tucked away on Li Yeun Street West, trust us when we say it’s worth making the detour on your way to the office for a mouthful of Maple Bacon and Egg, Smashed Avocado and Feta or ‘The Hampton’, to name but a few of their delicious flavour combinations…

Mercedes Me *NOW CLOSED*

This swish new restaurant from Maximal Concepts has been an instant hit this year, winning awards  as well as the hearts of Hong Kong foodies. Expect the same luxury and high quality that the Mercedes brand is known for in a location that couldn’t be any more Central. The new breakfast is a favourite for business breakfast meetings, offering a semi buffet with a variety of seasonal fresh fruits, salads, cheeses, homemade juices and freshly brewed teas. Egg-lovers have to try the 62 Degree Slow Cooked Eggs with a choice of two sides, or go for a lighter option with the homemade plain yogurt with cookies crumble. A must-visit if you work in the Central area and need to fuel up before a busy day at the office!

Mercedes Me, Shop C & D, Ground Floor, Entertainment Building, 30 Queen’s Road, Central, Hong Kong, 2895 7398, www.mercedes-benz.com/hk/mercedes-me/store/

Little Creatures Brewing Hong Kong

K-Town is full of great eateries and watering holes, and the latest edition to the Western District is no exception! Famed for their vast selection of signature craft beers (we highly recommend going for the tasting plank), this Aussie-inspired jaunt also cooks up a mean breakfast. From Grilled Sourdough spread with peanut butter, jam and vegemite (don’t knock it until you try it!) and Breakfast Pizzas, to eggs galore, don’t forget to sample their huge brunch menu that delights with hearty burgers and open-faced sandwiches (we can’t get enough of the chicken concoction with curry lime mayo!). Recovering from the night before? Their $80 Bloody Marys will sort you out in no time at all.

Catch on Catchick

If you’ve got some time this weekend, head to Kennedy Town for an incredible brunch (you can see our full review here!). There’s something to please everyone on their hearty menu, but the real winners are definitely the breakfast bites. We highly recommend chowing-down on the Big Bad Ben – two fluffy poached eggs smothered in creamy hollandaise with bacon, chorizo, avocado and hash browns. And don’t worry if you sleep the day away, their dinner menu is loaded with fresh, delicious seafood dishes and you can even bring your pups along, as the open outdoor area is dog friendly.

Corner Kitchen Café

This chic and breezy café will not disappoint. The décor is spacious and homey with comfy couches, wooden tables and the hipster essential: mason jar glasses. You’ll always find something drool-worthy on their breakfast menu but we love their wraps, which include Avocado, Spinach and Scrambled Eggs or Smoked Salmon, Tomato and Greek Yogurt. There’s a big table upstairs so you can bring all the girls for a weekend brunch. Save room for dessert because you don’t want to miss out on their Red Velvet with brûléed marshmallow frosting – a firm Sassy favourite!

When you need a little break from city life, but not enough to risk leaving the island, head to the latest creation by Cathal Kiely, the Irishman behind Rúla Búla and Solas amongst others. With its high ceilings and spacious dining area, it’s easy to forget you’re still in the 852. The interior has a cute nautical theme, comfy couches and homey wooden tables, a perfect place to snuggle into a delicious brunch with near endless options. They serve salads, seafood (of course) and pastries, but our eyes are on classics like their Full Irish breakfast and Bubble and Squeak with creamy mashed potatoes, and crispy fried bacon and cabbage.

This new Sheung Wan spot is just around the corner from Sassy HQ and it has become a firm favourite for team meetings and coffee breaks! Why 50 is a cute, independent cafe that serves up seriously good coffee. The simple, sweet decor is the perfect place for a cosy morning, and we may be slightly obsessed with their Avocado on Toast with Poached Eggs and the epic Cubano… all washed down with a strong cup of quality coffee, of course. A fail-safe brekkie fave for Sheung Wan dwellers.

Open Door Café and Courtyard

Offering up a delicious range of gluten free dishes, like their signature cauliflower ‘rice’ with chicken and pineapple, Open Door is a haven for those with tricky stomachs. If you’re a grab-it-and-go type of girl in the morning, don’t skimp on nutrition. Stop by Open Door and grab a breakfast smoothie with all the extras, like kefir, chia, flax and hempseed! If you have time, soak in the arty vibe and enjoy work by local artists – the exhibition changes each month, giving you a free shot of culture with that almond-milk latte. If you and your pooch are looking for some new pals, keep an eye on their Facebook page, they have monthly doggie playdates with free puppuchinos and maybe even a treat or two.

Open Door Café and Courtyard, 120 Connaught Road West, Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong, 3460 3880, www.opendoorcafe.hk

Grassroots Pantry

Looking to eat a little healthier this week? Grassroots Pantry is a must-visit for delicious, healthy and wholesome meals. Their food holds no room for nasty, processed ingredients – but by no stretch of the imagination does that mean that they scrimp on flavour! Pop in on the way back from your morning run and indulge in nourishing favourites like Smashed Avocado and Free-Range Poached Eggs, Coconut Kefir Yogurt Parfait, Acai Berry Bowls and Lemon Chia Seed Pancakes – delish!

Pancakes aren’t just for dinner at Stack, the industrial-chic restaurant by twins Josh and Caleb Ng (of Common Ground fame) know how to do these bad boys in every which way. While Stack is known for creative pancake-based dinners and great cocktails, we just can’t resist the siren call of a light, fluffy short stack on a lazy Sunday morning. You can go down the classic route, drenched in syrup and butter and topped with ice cream, or you can try something a little more adventurous like their decadent Mr. Benedict’s Duck, with creamy poached duck eggs on pancakes. Book ahead to avoid disappointment!

Stack, G/F 1 Third Street, Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong, 2549 9787, www.stackconcepts.com
