Coffee and Brunch. A weekend must-do for most of us. Here’s a great spot if you find yourself in Orchard Road craving for a good brew.
Born in Hong Kong 5 years ago in bustling Causeway Bay, The Coffee Academics have now expanded to Shanghai & Singapore and set its sights on Beijing, Tokyo & Paris! The main reason to visit this cafe is the coffee, of course. Served in a cup or in an ice cream cone!
The food at their flagship store at Scotts Square is a little hit and miss. We would go back for the Crab & Avocado Salad, as well as the Umami Pasta with shrimp, chili and bonito flakes. The other items on the menu were average. Desserts look to be a hit with the 3 tier Academics Pancake Tower being the most popular and insta-worthy, the HK Egglet Waffle with mango, milk tea ice cream & salted egg yolk sauce is another best seller.
We like the light-filled space and vibe of the cafe. When you’re next at Scotts Square, pop into fashion boutique Trixilini on the 3rd level for some gorgeous threads! The Embrace house collection is now available there too, so you can shop for both fashion & jewellery at the same time!
