Breakfast Hong Kong: Maison Eric Kayser

Maison Eric Kayser

A great pit stop for artisan bread and pastry in Hong Kong is Maison Eric Kayser. Offering up delectable French pastries, bread and freshly prepared sandwiches, along with great coffee, it’s one breakfast spot that is always on our radar.

Marks & Spencer

A staple for Brits craving home-comforts (and Percy Pigs), Marks and Sparks actually have some pretty great breakfast options too. Pre-sliced fruit, yoghurt, Bircher Muesli pots and sausage sarnies (a hangover staple), are just a few of the options on offer. Admittedly you don’t bag quite the same value for money when you convert currencies, but it’s always worth checking out what’s on offer in the meal deal department before hitting the tills.

Passion by Gerard Dubois

Feeling like a quick coffee and pastry to ease those Monday morning blues? Passion is where to head. Or if you really need a pick-me-up, make sure to try out the indulgent Chocolate Chaud. There is seating upstairs and some tables outside at its Wan Chai location, but we love taking away a loaf of the crusty sourdough for a treat at home.

Pret A Manger

We’ve tucked into more of Pret’s lunch sarnies than we’d care to admit, but it’s worth having a look at its breakfast options too. Those with a sweet tooth will no doubt opt for the honey granola pot, while bacon and egg baps will hit the spot on your commute. Pret even offers some cool substitutes for milk in your morning latte – coconut milk is worth giving a go!

What better start to the day is there than a fully loaded bagel?

Winstons Coffee

This Aussie-style coffee shop exudes seriously hipster vibes, offset by hordes of Hongkongers grabbing a quick bite and a cappuccino before heading off on a hike or going about their weekend. Small but sweet, Winstons serves up a mean morning brew at its locations in both Kennedy Town and Sai Ying Pun, along with delicious food offerings like avo toasties, bagels and baked goods.

Rarely a weekend goes by when we don’t find ourselves at Bakehouse. Helmed by Chef Grégoire Michaud, this bakery is far from run of the mill, with all of its baked goods made fresh onsite every day. Whilst its Sourdough loaves are some of the best in the city, we love trying out its new and creative twists on the classics which can often be found in the well-stocked cabinet. Must-tries of ours includes the Sourdough Egg Tart, Double Chocolate Cookie and Almond Danish. If you’re wanting something heartier, Bakehouse also serves up delights such as Brioche French Toast and Shakshuka for dine-in at its Wan Chai outpost. Just be sure to get there early to beat the inevitable queues – yes, even for takeaway!

Now with three locations to its name (the Sun Street outpost is our fave!), this speciality coffee spot has perfected its offering of affordable and healthy bites. Head here for everything from Avo-Open Faced Sandwiches, Bagels, Toasties and Acai Bowls.

You’ll find plenty of people who shout about its smashed avocado on sourdough (tip: add smoked salmon), along with the Big Bad Ben (with poached eggs, bacon, avocado, chorizo, hash browns, hollandaise and harissa) and the Summer French Toast.

Elephant Grounds

Going out for breakfast definitely doesn’t mean cornflakes for us! It’s all about big chunks of avocado, runny poached eggs and freshly baked bread. No strangers to its extravagant ice cream sandwiches (can we have one of those for brekkie?), Elephant Grounds does nothing by halves, vamping up its Avocado Toast with French pea pesto and dill yogurt. Its Peanut Butter Banana Toast (available at the Mid-Levels location) doesn’t miss the mark either…

For the self-professed avocado toast and coffee enthusiast out there, Fineprint is an absolute dream come true: with not one, not two, but three kinds of avocado toast, you’ll be spoilt for choice! This chic little breakfast nook is reminiscent of Sydney coffee shops, but seamlessly fits into Hong Kong’s brekkie scene as well. If you’re not an avo fan, the Ricotta Toast or Bikini Toastie are equally solid choices – accompany your pick with a flat white and you’re set! The dimly lit interior is fairly cosy, but it’s easy enough to grab your food to-go or even sit outside and people watch to your heart’s content.

Open from: 6am, daily (all locations)

Le Pain Quotidien

NINETY’s Coffee

With prime locations in Wan Chai, Central, Soho and Causeway Bay, it’s hard to sleep on NINETY’s once you’ve passed by and caught a whiff of the expertly-brewed coffee.

One Dim Sum

Our guide to breakfast in Hong Kong wouldn’t be complete without a mention of dim sum! One of our favourite local spots is One Dim Sum in Prince Edward, and it’s perfect for a lazy Sunday morning. Be prepared to queue a little though – whilst the doors open as early as 9am on weekends, there will almost always be a wait. Our favourite items to order will always be the “char siu bao” and “siu mai”, but we can never bring ourselves to leave without having at least one egg custard bun (no matter how full we are).

Open from: 10am, Monday to Friday; 9am, Weekends

If you’re someone who’s not that in love with breakfast food, or eating a ton first thing in the morning, teakha has the perfect set up. While it’s known for its tea (the Masala Chai is one of the best we’ve had!), it’s actually the scones that get us in the door. Available in flavours like Pineapple Honeycomb, Apple Longan and Earl Grey Lemon, it’s no wonder we find them hard to resist! Of course, traditional breakfast sets are available too, including Huevos Rancheros Toast, Gingerbread Orange Pancakes and Granola Yoghurt with Pear. As a bonus, your order of a breakfast dish will nab you 50% off drinks if you order on a weekday before noon!

Open from: 9am, Monday to Friday; 8:30am, Weekend and Public Holidays

Today Is Long (TIL)

Inspired by Australia’s golden sunsets and the sandstone monolith Uluru, we are obsessed with this corner cafe’s burnt-orange theme. Head here for an extensive range of caffeine options (conveniently split into drinks for a “Short Day” which are lighter in caffeine and drinks for a “Long Day” which are heavier). Food-wise, loaded croissants, toasties and wraps all make an appearance on the menu, along with the cafe’s famous “croffles” (a croissant and waffle hybrid).

Open from: 7:30am, daily

VEDA proves that vegetarians can still have plenty of delicious dishes to choose from, whatever the time of day! The plant-based restaurant starts serving as early as 6:30am (until 10:30am), with a line-up of avo toast, granola, pastries and much more. Many options here are also vegan or gluten-free, so it’s a great option for those with dietary requirements too.

Best For The Morning After

Breakfast Hong Kong: Morty's


Had a heavy night and are in need of a helping hand to get you back to health in the morning? Or maybe you just want to indulge a little? Morty’s is your answer to all. This New York-style deli serves up drool-worthy sandwiches all day, but for your morning fix opt for the fully-loaded Breakfast Bagel (with house bacon, scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, butter lettuce and tomato), or the spicy Pastrami Omelette (with slow smoked pastrami, jalapeño and cheese). Breakfast is served at the Central location until 10:30am.

Open from: 8am, Monday to Friday

Australian Dairy Company

Australia Dairy Company’s breakfast set is hard to beat for an authentic local breakfast in Hong Kong. Think fluffy, creamy eggs served on thick, generously buttered slices of toast and a bowl of classic macaroni and ham soup to boot. Grab your order and head home for a morning on the couch; whilst the food is hard to beat, the actual cha chaan teng itself is not the place to be if you want to soothe your hangover!

Australian Dairy Company, 47 Parkes Street, Jordan, Kowloon, Hong Kong, www.facebook.com/Australia-Dairy-Company

Brunch Club

A cosy and casual spot for any time of day, we love Brunch Club’s menu which is packed full of comfort food faves. The homemade bread and desserts here from Marie’s Bakery are a must-try, or for a more filling option, go for the Wing On Waffle with slow-roasted chicken wings served on a crispy potato waffle (available at the CWB location).

Green Waffle Diner

Whether you’re in the mood for a sweet or savoury breakfast, Green Waffle Diner will always hit the spot. Its Country Brunch Skillet (a delicious mix of bacon, peppers, onions, home fries, poached eggs and melted cheese) is the perfect meal after a big night out. We’re also partial to its Pandan Pancakes, topped with a generous serving of condensed milk and whipped cream. The milkshakes are also definitely not to be missed, though you can opt for some strong coffee or tea if you want something a little less sugary! This is an American-style diner, so expect large portions and a healthy level of carbs! Waffles and pancakes can also be ordered gluten-free, which makes it a hit amongst our gluten-intolerant friends.

Open from: Opening hours vary between locations; call directly for more info

You may laugh, but how many of you have turned to the golden arches to cure a hangover? And with McDonald’s on pretty much every street corner (and available for delivery!) you can’t go wrong. Did we mention McD’s in Hong Kong serves up its sausage McMuffins all day long?

This quaint Poho gem ticks all the boxes in the aesthetics department, and it rustles up an excellent All Day Breakfast (complete with hash browns, score!).

Another great option for when you’re feeling a little fragile (or just hungry!) is The Diner. Start with the Morning After Smoothie, which is packed with antioxidants and coconut water to make that hangover disappear, before delving into the Breakfast Burrito or Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes. Brunch is served until 3pm on weekends, so you can even have a lie in too!

Best Breakfast Hong Kong: Supabowl


Breakfast in Hong Kong doesn’t have to be pastries and eggs. If you’re feeling like a lighter grab-and-go breakfast before heading to the gym, Supabowl is where to head to. Found in both Wan Chai and Central, this little shop serves up delicious and colourful made-to-order acai bowls. We’re partial to the classic Supabowl (signature acai base with bananas, strawberries, blueberries and bee pollen), but the superfood options here are almost endless – just the thing if you need a healthy kick-start in the morning.

nood food

Much more than just a juice bar (a great one at that), nood is a healthy haven that’s perfect for a healthy bite on the go, or to sit in and savour. Its Cacao Chia Porridge is a sure bet, as is the Coconut Yogurt with Quinoa Puff Granola. Feel like something with a bit more bite? The hot food counter doesn’t disappoint with endless Paleo dishes, along with responsibly-sourced meat and fish.

Bing Kee

If you’re after some flavoursome pork noodle soup, head to Bing Kee. There’s a reason why this is the best-selling dish – with juicy, peppery pork, greens, noodles and a flavoursome broth, it’s some of the tastiest noods we’ve tried! Along with the food, we love this local dai pai dong for its cleanliness and friendly service, making it a real winner in our books.

Crowned the cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant in Hong Kong, it’s totally worth braving the queues for a delicious dim sum breakfast here.

While the seating areas aren’t the biggest in any of the R&R Bagels outposts, the convenient locations (scattered in the heart of Central, Wan Chai and Tai Koo) makes it a great pick for a working morning or catching up with colleagues over a coffee. A breakfast favourite of ours will always be the Maple Bacon & Egg – a mouth-watering mix of sweet smoky bacon (glazed with Noble Tonic No. 01 maple syrup), a runny egg and cream cheese.

Open from: 7:30am, Monday to Friday; 8:30am, Weekends
