Café O is one of Hong Kong’s popular café stops thanks to its range of Mediterranean inspired light dishes, sandwiches and, best of all, Roma flatbread pizzas.
Café O StyleCafé O is a European style café with slightly different set ups at its three locations. The Wan Chai and Central locations are more geared to the grab and go lunch crowd with just a dozen or so high tables and stools, while the Sheung Wan branch has a dedicated upstairs and more of a sit down appeal. All their branches are popular at lunchtimes and seats can be hard to find, although evening brings a smaller and more relaxed crowd. Décor is a contemporary mix of white walls and red splashes set around a counter service
Café O FoodFood comes from a Mediterranean inspired menu that includes a number of pastas, large salads and freshly made sandwiches, but also mixes in several all day breakfasts from the healthy to the unhealthy, including a full English. The real highlight from the kitchen however are the flatbread, Romana style pizzas that come in square, half metres and metre measurements. Thoroughly authentic, they are served with a variety of traditional toppings, such as pesto and salami, and are toasted to order. While the majority of the meals are squarely aimed at filling a gap for office rats, the pizzas are a full blown meal. Café O also serves wine, bottled beers and a selection of spirits.
Do Go ForOutstanding pizzas in a sleek, unpretentious atmosphere. Café O isn’t really a place to linger, but the price of the meals makes it a great place to refill on quality food without putting a hole in your wallet.
