Simplylife Cafe Review (Taikoo Shing Branch)

Rating: 3.5/5 (good food and value for money)
Atmosphere:  Casual cafe dining experience. Nicely decorated. This is a well known cafe chain in Hong Kong. 
Menu: Available in English and Mandarin. In addition to their menus. they also have a counter selling artisan breads and pastries.They have a one page menu at different times of the day. If you miss their lunch menu, then you will only get to order from the tea menu. They have sets which provide for soup and beverage and add on dessert which are value for money.
Service: Polite. Waitors provided good and flexible service.
What to order: Anything really… their standards are consistent and it will leave you feeling satisfied. Their drinks are creative and nice. Worth a try. Like Orange with black tea or Apple oolong tea.  Portions are big for lunch sets especially their burgers.
Average Price: HKD 100-  HKD150

Here is what we ordered.

Orange and a hint of black tea that is not overpowering. Yumz.


I ordered the Eggs Benedict and it was nice.


The ,mushroom cream soup was alright. It did not leave much impression on me. I like their bread, its hearty.


The brown nice was also nicely cooked. I can’t fault it.


This is a cafe that you can probably visit daily and it won’t break the bank. It consistently delivers good food with big portions in a nice environment.

I haven’t had the chance to try their breads but might do so one of these days.

A word of advice, avoid lunch hours, you will need to wait for seats.
