18 Grams (Causeway Bay)

Recommendation posted 10 months ago

18 Grams is one of the very first establishments in Hong Kong to offer espresso-based beverages. It started out as a humble coffee bar in Causeway Bay. Now, with a total of eight branches, it has turned into a full-fledged empire deeply favored by the caffeine-obsessed! Visit its original location on Cannon Street for a Flat White or Piccolo Latte, and see where it all began for 18 Grams!

Treat yourself to an excellent cuppa from a three-time World Barista champ!

Pair your filtered coffee with any of the cafe’s tasty brunch offerings, like their Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon and Avocado on Toast with Poached Egg! Drop by early to snag a seat at the wooden communal tables inside as it gets pretty hectic here during lunchtime!
