Some time during Chinese New Year break, Nanz FINALLY made some time for me in her busy schedule to FINALLY go out to Lane Crawford‘s new Library Café on Canton Road. Of course “time for me” meant mom came along too and so did Jess and even my brother too. The Library Cafe is situated at the very end of the newly renovated Shoe Library (the only place where you are tempted to sell your soul for an endless amount of…well..soles HAR HAR HAR HAR /endofcheeseballs).

The Café is a curation of the best food and drinks from local Hong Kong eateries as well as some international food brands. The setting is super chill and the modern interior fit with an extra long communal marble top table and glorious hanging exposed bulbs adds a hint of relaxed luxury. We drowned ourselves in endless refills of Fortnum & Mason teas and indulged in two mini cakes from Ms B’s Cakery. The Café also serves a selection of food and drinks from Petite Amanda, Yardbird, Boissier, fashion-themed cupcakes and cookies designed by Deseree Smith and many more.

Loved the exposed lightbulbs

The “Better than Sex” Chocolate cake from Ms. B!

Ms. B’s Sunshine cake (Lemon and Poppyseed chiffon with lemon curd)

And as usual…gossiping away…

Put my family together in public and we are guaranteed to be the loudest laughing, most obnxiously boisterous group of people ever. Good times good times.

ok bye now!

P.S. I’ve just updated my POP-UP SHOP with something real drool-worthy and limited too! Click to seeee and shop!

Oh this place looks completely amazing. I’m going to have to try and visit when I go back to HK in a couple of weeks! That menu, food and drink look SO GOOD!

It looks like a very nice place for a quick bite and a good coffee or tea (love the Alessi tea pot). Definitely a spot I will try to visit next time I´m in HK.
