Cafe Deadend has been aptly named – it’s literally at the end of a small street named Po Hing Fong. Although it’s hardly a street I guess – more like one of the winding, little roads thats snake up the mountain of Hong Kong Island , eventually leading to the Mid-Levels area. Curiously, there are lots of shops selling coffins in this area, and there’s also lots of cool street art. Click through for more…

Cafe Deadend is smaller than I expected – but maybe that’s because the outside seating area wasn’t in use because it was a particularly cold day. Even inside it wasn’t warm…so pack an extra jumper/scarf/hat/jacket if you’re heading here in the colder months. We were handed little bits of paper which served as menu – quite a cool design. Unfortunately there are only 4 options for breakfast…and the lunch menu also looked a lot tastier. I would definitely recommend coming here for lunch instead of breakfast, or maybe just come for a coffee stop.

S. and I both had coffees – even her soy latte looked pretty! Have a guess which one it is from the photos… She went for the Bagel – house-cured salmon, mixed greens, dill cream cheese (HK$90) which looked truly beautiful. It’s also a classic bagel topping which can’t go wrong. It was also very generously filled – this breakfast will definitely keep you going until lunch time.

I had the B.E.L.T – A.O.P, crispy bacon, sunny side egg and honey mustard dressing (HK$95) – kind of like a breakfast burger. I forget what A.O.P is – I think they said it was the bread? (Feel free to correct me). I loved the unexpected side of yogurt with freshly sliced apple. I guess it works like a palate cleanser after the sticky, saucy, bacon-y burger. Also makes you feel kinda healthy.

This is a great neighbourhood cafe, but as I mentioned before, definitely better for lunch than breakfast. I imagine it would also be lovely to sit outside in summer!
