Since the completion of HKU station, Shek Tong Tsui has transformed to one of the most sought-after Westernized locations in Hong Kong Island. There has been plenty of trendy hip restaurants and cafes rolling in, such as COBO House, Artisan Room and the newly soft opened LIFETASTIC.
A glass door front, some stylish chandeliers and a collection of animal paintings, the cafe aims to provide a resting place to enjoy a work-life balance.
A plate of all-day breakfast is simple and filling, including button mushroom sautéed in butter herbs, scrambled egg topped with black truffle paste and a crunchy hash brown. The 16 layers pain au chocolate is unbelievably crispy and filled with chocolate paste.

We loved the signature strawberry watermelon rose cake. Consisting of almond meringue crust, rose water cream and a refreshing piece of watermelon slice; the top is completed with Korean strawberries too!
Both the flat white and mochaccino have beautiful latte art and whilst I am a non coffee drinker, I found the mochaccino very palatable and well balanced.
