About Take A Break Cafe 居廬 - To Kwa Wan 土瓜灣店
About the restaurant
There are two Take A Break Cafes in Hong Kong, one in Prince Edward and the other here in the Kowloon neighbourhood of To Kwa Wan. Take A Break Cafe specialises in breakfasts, brunches and lunches with a decided European and Italian influence. Simply a great spot to hangout with friends over coffee or tea, Take A Break Cafe’s Pak Tai Street address is often busy with locals in the know.
Now that the Hong Kong district of To Kwa Wan is undergoing major redevelopment, the area is in dire need of quality restaurants and cafes for a growing local population. Take A Break Cafe, found down Pak Tai Street, is one such neighbourhood fixture, offering great coffee and refreshments and a robust menu of chiefly European and Italian dishes, all generously apportioned and served at great price. Take A Break’s all-day breakfast is particularly popular, with items like baked ham and cheese croissants, Oreo smoothies and strawberry waffles helping you to start the day right.
As the day wears on in the busy streets of To Kwa Wan, Take A Break Cafe ramps up its offering to include European dishes like mussels sauteed in white wine and Italian fare like penne pasta with wild mushrooms in a black truffle cream sauce. Pizza is on offer too, with the hallowed black truffle making its way onto a Neapolitan pie alongside rocket and Parma ham. Cafe culture is a big thing in Hong Kong, and with the addition of Take A Break to the Kowloon side of the harbour, this corner of town has another spot where you can get away from it all, kick back, unwind and refuel.
