A locally-grown micro coffee roaster best known for their independently-roasted coffee and delectable range of handcrafted ice creams, Elephant Grounds started off small as a tiny counter at the back of WOAW lifestyle store on Gough Street, and has now grown into a network of five cafes across the city, with four on Hong Kong island alone.
WiFi signal: Good.
Power: Power sockets available at Star Street, Causeway Bay, and Mid Levels locations.
Coffee, bites, and more: One drink that sets Elephant Grounds apart from the rest is its Bulletproof Coffee, a mix of grass-fed butter, brain octane oil, milk, and a shot of espresso, which delivers a slow-burning seven-hour caffeine hit. But what we really, really love about Elephant Grounds is its ice cream sandwiches, which are made with in-house ice cream and come in amazing flavour combinations like blood orange ice cream and macadamia nut cookies and cereal milk ice cream and graham cracker cookies. They switch up the flavours quite often though so make sure you check their Instagram beforehand to see what they have on offer.
Water: Tap water is available upon request.
Service: Pretty friendly by Hong Kong standards.
Noise level: Usually quiet enough.
Other: Outdoor seating is available at the Causeway Bay location.
Hours: Differ according to location.
