A walk by Nodi

Just over the high pass, by the bridge from Alexandra House to Landmark Chater, almost squirreled away, lies the espresso bar format coffee stand Nodi. A menu with a slight Australian bent, and an eclectic tea range, it’s a great pit stop amid the hub bub of Hong Kong life. Just be sure to avoid lunch time: queue times seem to rise non-linearly in proportion to queue length. Nodi Coffee

Mandy’s under appreciated gem

A picture speaks volumes. Home made pastries, decent coffee, and newspapers that don’t look like they’ve just been used to mop up this mornings’ spill. And all for a not-unreasonable price. Often missed by a high-end crowd focused on table dining at adjacent Cafe Causette, forget that: just plop yourself down at a chair on the counter in line of sight of all those cakes, and be a tad assertive. The perfect place for a pit stop on a late Saturday morning. Mandarin Cake Shop
