Vive la France, à Wanchai

It’s basically a place for the ‘Ladies who Lunch’. But get there at the right time (8-9am) and you can enjoy this puppy relatively undisturbed. Kick back in one of the leather arm chairs, sit at the wooden social table, or just hide away surfing the decently okay internet. This locale is technically a bakery — and one might debate the Belgium / French angle here — but one with range. Although this author, unadventurous Englishman that he is, prefers to stick to the Pain au Chocolate, or the occasional waffle, there’s baguettes, tartines, croissants,… and the jams, if you can actually nab them, exude fabulousness. For coffee think ‘Big Bowl Belgium’. It’s just the thing for a relaxing Sunday morning. Get there early though: this place fills up, and when it does the sounds from the riffraff, bouncing off those refined glass doors make Barnes Wallis’ invention look pedestrian by comparison.
