NOC Coffee Co.

With locations across the city, NOC is always up there as one of our top choices for coffee. Roasting its own beans at its Sai Ying Pun Roastery, a decent cuppa is always guaranteed here. Tucked onto Tai Wong Street East, the Wan Chai space is cosy, with limited seating room, so it’s best reserved for a take-away cup on your morning commute or on a lazy weekend. Opt for a perfectly-made flat white, a healthy matcha latte, or go a little different with the Fizzpresso – a refreshing and unique blend of espresso, tonic water and passion fruit.
