Their Salmon Bagel is totally overpriced. At upwards of HK$150. Which idiot would pay that much?! Me. Coz good bagels are hard to find in Hong Kong and there’s just something delightful about the fact that it’s bigger than my face and satisfies all my cravings. Though today, I noticed the Lounge at Four Seasons has those bagels as well! And I haven’t tried it but I ought to see how they compare. I also like their coffee (definitely better than Four Seasons‘ instant one-button tap coffee machine... in fact, why haven’t these hotels upgraded and hired proper baristas for coffee? In this day and age... but I digress). Oolaa’s coffee is real coffee (maybe not always the perfect espresso) but definitely none of that instant Nespresso junk.
There are no end of instagrammable cafes with mediocre food, but featherstone combined a hip vintage style with some very tasty and unusual dishes. For example I wouldn't have thought to combine mashed potato and crispy chicken skin but it works. While the menus include a long description about feathers and crystals and mysticism it doesn't get in the way of the good food and service. There's also a shop with interesting homewares, hats and jewellery.
