The Coffee Academics, a purveyor and roaster, specialises in coffee and coffee only has two outlets and a kiosk in Hong Kong. I went to the outlet at Wan Chai for breakfast on a weekday.
The cafe has a very English Bar feel. Lots of high chairs along the bar counter, a communal table by the side and of course the normal tables as well. The cafe is considerably big.
It has a simple Breakfast menu but all were items that I like. It has a separate menu for drinks and other food menu, which I termed it as non-breakfast menu.
After much contemplation, I ordered the Smoked Salmon and Two Eggs Any Styled. I like Sunny Side-up best so that was my choice. The presentation was lovely. It was ashamed that they covered the lovely rose-shaped smoked salmon with greens. The eggs tasted great with dashes of pepper and chopped parsley. I like the salad very much. It was tossed well in a sweet and sour plum sauce if I am correct. It was appetising. It was a pity that the bread they served was a staled.
The coffee, good. It has a medium to low acidity, medium body, good aroma with fruity hint and tasted creamy too.
I like The Coffee Academics, the feel, the food, the cafe, everything about Coffee Academics, I like them. It is one of the cafe serving better breakfast food. It is definitely a great cafe to go either alone or in group, even large group, it can accommodate. And it has free WiFi too.
