Adding to the city's ever-expanding list of minimalist cafes, NN Coffee keeps the crowd coming by offering excellent coffee and a simple – but no less delicious – menu made up of brunch, salad, and pasta dishes. The cafe's bare concrete walls, coupled with a honey-coloured hue from wooden furnishing and framework, easily make the cafe one of our favourite spots in Sai Kung. Head upstairs and park your bum on a seat by the window for a peaceful afternoon of people watching.

Cozy Coffee is an open-air, two-story cafe offers a haven of peace situated by the main road leading into town centre. Its light-coloured decor on the ground floor attracts the post-beach crowd – and their pets – on the weekends, while the second floor's library theme makes for a more relaxed ambience. We recommend the lobster to accompany their pour-over coffee.

There's one thing that Sai Kung is not without and that's our beloved furry pals, so it comes as no surprise that the Shiba Taro Cafe is a popular joint in the area. Playing shopkeeper of the cafe, Taro the Shiba always welcomes his guests with a warm and friendly smile. Dog lover or not, you’re bound to fall in love with Taro. Don’t worry, the food is no afterthought either. Serving up a range of Western cuisine, there's everything from sweet and savoury nibbles to seafood pasta and all-day breakfast.

Dim sum anyone? Nowhere Man earned its place on our list for its unique and innovative dishes found on the menu. From a black truffle siu mai salad to Peking duck spring rolls and strawberry-infused chicken wings to a classic prawn toast, you can clearly see a fusion of traditional cuisine mixed with modern tastes. This is a definite must-try.

More than just a cafe, Blacksmith is a cool little hangout spot that often showcases different art pieces by local artists as well as a handful of precious gems collected by the shop owner. Mixing art together with cuisine, Blacksmith serves up a mouthwatering selection of dishes such as pulled pork bagel, honey lemon french toast, ratatouille and kimchi chicken pizza.

Founded by comedian and musical actor Jim Chim, My Sunshine House is a charming little blue and white themed cafe with a Mediterranean twist. The cafe's open space makes it a popular gathering ground for bookworms looking to flip some pages with a coffee in hand, and dog owners to bask in sunshine along with their pup friends.
