Best cafes and coffee shops to visit in New Territories

An Coffee

Restaurants Cafés Tai Po

Nestled in the quiet nook of Tai Po Lam Tsuen (near the famous wishing tree), An Coffee is a cosy little java spot that’s highly photogenic both inside and out. Coated in a dreamy purple facade, An Coffee also has a spacious terrace on the second floor for guests to kick back and relax. Granted, the location is not the most convenient, but we promise their homemade cakes and special fruit teas and mocktails will be well worth the trip.

Sleek, all-black interior, cool artworks by local artists on display, and a selection of top-notch coffee and teas, Sammi Coffee is basically every minimalist's dream. Don't miss the main attraction: a stylish Supersize Me figurine by Ron English right in the middle of the cafe!

Whitewood has everything a good cafe should do, with a great and varied selection of coffees – from macchiatos to pour over and from speciality teas to matcha lattes – and a mouthwatering lineup of dishes to match. As well as all-day savoury breakfast options like the full English and the smashed avocado on toast, there’s also plenty for those with a sweet tooth, with a range of souffle pancakes that are to die for including matcha, strawberry, banana, and ice cream.

Cohee

Restaurants Cafés Yuen Long

Cohee – how you would say coffee in Japanese – is tucked among the alleys and village houses in Kam Tin, injecting a little Japanese culture and minimalism in an otherwise local area in Hong Kong. Serving hand-brewed coffee in Japanese pottery and a selection of buns, cakes, and pastries, Cohee welcomes patrons to find their zen and embrace the Japanese way of living.

Tucked away on Castle Peak Road, Hidden Coffee and Roaster focuses primarily on handcrafted coffees with the addition of light bites such as scones and homemade cakes. What makes this place truly special is their coffee training program that supports minorities and individuals with intellectual disabilities. The cafe also offers a range of eco-friendly products such as reusable straws and cups as well as a variety of coffee beans for sale.

Step inside this jungle of a cafe and imagine yourself on a tropical island. Random plants and vines hanging from the walls and ceiling, quirky toys, neon signs, colourful tiles, and different artworks all combine to make a tropical haven that is Joy Food Lounge. The interior here is one of the most unique we've seen in Hong Kong, but of course, the food is amazing too. From ratatouille and beef wellington to all-day breakfast and cheesy burgers, the cafe plates up a wide selection of quality western dishes that will definitely have you coming back for more.

Kaffee House

Things to do Tai Po

In between the old country houses of rural Hong Kong sits a gourmet coffee shop that almost seems out of place yet somehow, still blends in with the relaxed atmosphere and surrounding greenery. The homey coffee shop even has a swing chair where you can sit and enjoy your beverage – just be careful not to spill your hot latte. Alternatively, go for one of their cold brew options that are just as fragrant.

Kaffee House only takes reservations from its members. Those interested in visiting can easily register through their Instagram by providing their full name, mobile number, and email address. Just remember, if you are driving there, park in nearby parking lots and not inside the village as it is a private area. And if you’re going there for photoshoots, remember not to trespass to ask for permission from Kaffee House first.

Mr Cardigan Plant House

Restaurants Cafés Tai Po

Just a stone's throw away from Long Mei Beach in Tai Po, Mr Cardigan is a refurbished shipping container complete with floor to ceiling windows, a spacious patio, and plenty of botanicals both inside and out. The menu is small and changes every so often, but we highly recommend trying one of their fruit teas along with a slice of their homemade cakes. The cafe opens on Sunday only and is sometimes rented out for weddings or photoshoots, so remember to check their Facebook or Instagram to see when they're opening.
