If you’re a sucker for all things matcha or just anything to do with Japanese food, check out Via Tokyo for some quality desserts. This popular soft serve store is most well-known for their various matcha creations and often draws snaking queues outside its store. Try the shiratama azuki matcha soft cream that comes with mini mochis, or mix it up with vanilla ice cream for a picture-perfect, creamy swirl. Via Tokyo also serves up premium cakes, pastries, and sandwiches if you’re looking for a savoury bite.

If you’re a self-confessed dessert lover, you should be no stranger to Dang Wen Li by Dominique Ansel. Boasting a collection of sweet treats that pay homage to the city, the bakery-slash-cafe has some of the most adorable and delicious cakes on their menu. From a coconut mousse creation disguised as a pineapple bun to a delightful Earl Grey mascarpone mousse dressed up as a classic lemon tea juice box, these desserts look so good that you'll have a hard time sticking your fork in. We also highly recommend trying the torched-to-order mochi 'fishballs' filled with red bean ice cream and the milk tea cookie shot that comes with a sugar cookie 'cup' filled with cold-brewed milk tea.


Jomo Coffee & Cakes

JOMO is a regular stomping ground for caffeine junkies, and their brewed coffees are best served with a slice of their delicious homemade cakes. Take your pick from a selection of chiffon cakes (we love the black sesame flavour), cheesecakes, and roll cakes, or dig into their range of vegan pastries that include a heavenly salted caramel apple crumble pie. Some of them are available as a whole six-inch or eight-inch cake too so you can always take one home to enjoy with your family or share it with your friends for a special occasion (or any other day, no one’s judging).

For somewhere a little different, check out this botanical cafe tucked inside a flower shop at the Prince Edward Flower Market. Cafe Hay Fever is a cosy destination to enjoy a speciality ice drip coffee along with a mean slice of cake. The cake selection here often changes so you’ll have plenty of excuses to revisit the cafe. Try their signatures such as the banana cream cake, burnt basque cheesecake, and chocolate truffle cake. The cafe has also recently opened up a second location in Central for those who reside on the Island.

Having opened its doors just a few months ago, this charming little nook in Tai Kok Tsui has already gained the attention of many for its Japanese, minimalist aesthetics and delectable bites. Check out their yuzu or black sesame cheesecake, before washing it down with a glass of Earl Grey latte or a Dirty Earl Grey latte if you want a bit of a caffeine boost. The cafe also serves savoury bites which include onigiri (Japanese rice ball), okonomiyaki toast, and udon – making it an ideal place to hit up for those who like to round off their meal with a sugary treat.
