Ever wondered what to eat in Stanley after visiting the Stanley Market or post photo shoots at the Murray House? Here are some cafés and restaurants that can easily become your new favourites when you're visiting Stanley.
Coffee & Pastries
Stanley Cave can be easily spotted by its distinctive brick wall around the corner of Market Road. What’s more exciting about the cave, is the row of glass windows displaying a range of cakes, pastries and sandwiches, that are freshly made everyday. The extensive team all have experience in baking for many prominent outlets in Hong Kong. The fro-yo is also outstanding here. Take-out is also available if you wish to sit along the promenade.

Cuppers Specialty Coffee
If you ever need some alone-time for consolidation or just some personal space, Cuppers will be best suited for you. They are best known for their specialty coffee, and (probably) have the best coffee you can find in Stanley. They offer a variety of coffee beans, as well as various brewing methods. They also make limited slow drip coffee (only 10 cups a day), where the coffee tends to be more aromatic and has a lighter body! You can also find a range of homemade pastries and chocolates imported from the UK in The Chocolate Room.
