Hidden Hong Kong: 6 Quirky Cafés to Try

Discover Hong Kong’s Hidden Quirks

Looking past the high rise buildings and abundance of bamboo scaffolding, Hong Kong is full of hidden gems. Turn left, turn right, head up the stairs of a building that on first glance looks abandoned and you’ve reached your destination. Because whether you’re chasing secret waterfalls or lounging around on a tucked away rooftop, we’ve learnt to expect the unexpected when it comes to living here – hardly scratching the surface of this concrete jungle. So if you’re looking for something off the beaten track, then our Hidden Hong Kong series is here to help!

This week we’ve rounded up some of the quirkiest cafés in the 852… from cats and cappuccinos, to scrabble and sandwiches, check out these unusual dining spots.

Cat Store Café

This super-cute café not only delivers a guaranteed feline fix with over 10 cats to keep you company, but also serve up some seriously sweet (and very Instagram-able) coffee art too. Yup. Double shot with a dish of full fat cream for the furry mate at your ankles. Embrace this alternative dining scene and grab a quick tea-break with a tabby at this unique café for cat-lovers!

OnDogDog Café

As much as it pains us to admit, sometimes our teeny apartments are just a little too tiny to take care of a pet day to day (sob, sob) – but the solution could lie in this cool café concept in Ho Man Tin! Devoted dog-lovers can head to OnDogDog and be greeted by five energetics canines left to roam freely around the space. Lovable, adorable (albeit a tad smelly, but we can get past that…), this pack of three Huskies, one Akita and one Shiba are always on hand to mingle and play whilst grabbing a quick pupacino or bite to eat. Alternatively, bring your own pet and join the pup party, girls!

Ease Café

Comic book and Manga lovers prepare to seriously nerd-out at Ease Café! With over 5,000 comic books on display from floor to ceiling, grab one off the shelf, sit back, relax and lose yourself amongst a full breakfast, delicious desserts and seriously cool views of Mong Kok.

J-Point Café

J-Point Café have turned our favourite comfort foods into works of art that’ll have you rather, err… snap-happy. Think oodles of fried noodles for hair, a cute ham bow and sweet curry rice animals. These character-inspired bento boxes are almost too cute to eat… almost.

Jolly Thinkers

If a game of Monopoly ends in upturned tables and thimbles sent flying across the room, then perhaps Jolly Thinkers isn’t for you. But for all those who enjoy a good board-game (take us back to the days of Operation and Battleship, we say) then head on over for a relaxing afternoon with friends. With hundreds of games to choose from – trust us, you won’t even make a dent in their stash – and light snacks on offer, it’ll be dark before you know it. Staying in is totally the new going out, after all…

Hello Kitty Secret Garden

Okay, we admit it… we’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for all things Hello Kitty-themed. So when the first of their cafés launched in Honkers, we couldn’t help but bee line for this Secret Garden, fingers poised and ready on the camera trigger. Serving up a variety of Western cuisine, including burgers, pizzas, sandwiches and salads, this adorable eatery makes a fun alternative to your usual Sunday jaunt. Plus their kitty-themed coffees are sure to get more than a few Insta-likes (but who’s counting!)…


If you’re looking for more Hello Kitty inspired meals (I mean, who isn’t?), then why not check out the Hello Kitty Dim Sum in TST – yep, Hello Kitty char siu baos do exist. And dreams do come true.
