A Little Escape in Hong Kong

【留在香港的充電假期—西貢外國風素食友善咖啡店】

說起容易做起來難,把旅行時的自己所有的力量和勇氣帶回家,即使經常提點自己,偶爾還是會被生活上的壓力影響而忘記了。
迷路時沒有Google Map,只有靠自己心口一個勇字找方向找飯店;到訪那家慕名很久的咖啡店時的興奮感覺;看到像夢境一般的景色時的新鮮感⋯⋯ 總在自己居住的地方忘記得一乾二淨。
幸好,香港有不少的離島、郊野公園、沙灘等等,可以假日時去放鬆抖抖氣。今天,我就想介紹一家在香港後花園——西貢的特色外國休閒風咖啡店!

Easy to say but hard to do - to bring the attitude while travelling to back to our life. The exceptional courage of looking the way to your hostel while no data on phone (to “Google map”), the excitement of first-time visiting the highly-rated restaurant/ coffee shops, the moment seeing the beautiful scenery that you’ve only dreamt of… everything is fresh and appealing.

But how about when we get bored in hometown?

Luckily we got a lot of different spots in Hong Kong despite the busy city centre. Islands, country parks, beaches… all around our city. Today, I want to introduce a new coffee shop I’ve found in Sai Kung - “the beautiful backyard garden of Hong Kong”.

簡約澳洲感覺

Aussie-Cozy Vibe with Minimal Interior

大大的窗戶、充足的陽光,這家Little Cove Espresso上個月才從原址(也在附近)搬到新店。他們的Instagram中寫到:一間身處巷中的咖啡店,為了照顧好西貢的居民和經過這𥚃的人,而做好咖啡。一看就知道是喝咖啡的好地方!白白的裝橫也是滿滿的澳洲感覺,走的是休閒舒適風。

A big window with abundant sunlight, Little Cove Espresso has just moved in to this location from their original store earlier last month. “A laneway cafe taking care of the good people of Sai Kung and those passing by, one cup at a time.” This neighbourhood cafe has an Aussie atmosphere - bright, high ceiling and comfy seats.

- 許多素食和健康選擇 -

Very Vegan/Vegetarian-Friendly Menu

除了外觀像澳洲的咖啡店外,他們的食物選擇也很像啊——就是非常「素食友善」!從早餐的果昔碗、多士;午餐的沙拉碗、意粉、開邊三文治;到甜點(祼食開心果巧克力條),也有不同的選擇(菜單上清楚列明V-Vegan純素、Ve-Vegetarian蛋奶素)。除此之後,他們提供的植物奶(豆奶/杏仁奶/燕麥奶)也不需要另外收費!(是我在香港(還有外果)第一次見到的。看來他們也很推廣植物奶呢~)

還有,咖啡的確好喝。

Not to mention they have a selection of Vegan/Vegetarian friendly dishes on the menu! Range from breakfast (Smoothie bowl, Toasties), lunch (Salad Bowl, Pasta, Open-side Sandwiches) to dessert (Raw Chocolate Pistachio Slice). Meanwhile they also provide Soy/Almond/Oat milk as dairy alternatives without adding any charges!

Their coffee? Yes, very good indeed!

這個是我小小的一次「工作假期」,素顏、穿起最愛的白Tee牛仔褲、帶著電腦⋯⋯ 其實就已經充足電了!

下次放假,你又喜歡去哪𥚃呢?

No make-up, put on my favourite white t-shirt and jeans, bring along my laptop… A little and simple satisfying “Working-Holiday”.
What about you? What is your favourite kind of relaxing holiday?
