Just a short four-minute walk from Tai Wai Station, Dear Coffee and Bakery is a quirky, unassuming cafe that offers an assortment of delightful baked goods and exquisite coffee. Try one of their all-day breakfast dishes or go for the popular mochi-stuffed bagels, purple potato bun, or the salted caramel cinnamon roll. Top off your meal with a cup of latte served in a beautiful vintage cup. If you do decide to visit, know that there’s almost always a queue outside the cafe, so be sure to get there early and avoid rush hours!
Tai Wai is one of those off-the-grid places that people rarely ever stop to explore. Known to many as merely an MTR stop before reaching Sha Tin, this heritage-filled, old-school village is not a popular dining destination – and that’s all the more reason why you need to visit. From tasty and affordable Japanese food to cool hangout spots to stop for coffee, Tai Wai is home to an assortment of amazing restaurants and cafes. It's also a great place to visit if you’re looking to support local businesses and try out something new. By Jessica Luisa Chan
