As its name might suggest, this restaurant is renowned for the variety of its brunch options. Brunch Club, tucked away on Peel Street, is a cozy and welcoming space offering artisanal coffee, baked goods, and all manner of comforting breakfast and lunch options. Whether it’s a classic fry-up, healthy fruit and yogurt or juicy burger that you’re after, you’ll find it here. Think of it as an extension of your living room on a Sunday morning. There’s even a newsstand so you can grab a newspaper.
Think ‘Ye Olde’: the Globe is your traditional English pub in the heart of Hong Kong. Their slogan is “Real Beer, Real Food, Real People”, so don’t expect anything pretentious, just British pub grub the way it should be. Their famous Sunday roast is piled high with beef imported from the UK and served with all the trimmings. Don’t miss their well-loved pies and seasonal changing menus.
For those in a ‘New York Italian’ state of mind come brunch time, Posto Pubblico’s fresh ingredients and authentic recipes is a must. They serve their mouthwatering à la carte menu during brunch, but also offer a two-hour free-flow prosecco meal at a reasonable rate. Sit at the bar solo and enjoy your Sunday paper or bring friends for a boozy session.
If you’re seeking something a little more upscale, head to Craftsteak and feast on prime cuts of beef, juicy burgers and fresh imported seafood. Some of the finest steaks in town find their purpose in life on this place’s charcoal grill, while the sophisticated setting and long list of wines brings a touch of fine dining to the brunch experience.
At Sohofama, you’ll find wholesome, organic Chinese food and dim sum served up in a stylish, welcoming setting. The focus here is on classic childhood favourites, prepared with healthy ingredients and the odd modern flourish. You won’t find chemicals or processed nasties here, only the best HK’s local farms have to offer; don’t miss their indulgent black truffle xiao long bao. Grab a seat on the terrace for a relaxed weekend ambiance.
A collaboration between HK restaurateur Yenn Wong and Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton, Aberdeen Street Social boasts one of the best menus in the city, with a distinct ‘Modern British’ slant – their deceptively simple steak and eggs is a stroke of genius (and a fantastic hangover cure). From detox juices to an unmissable signature Bloody Mary, the drinks hit the heights, too. This family-friendly brunch spot includes a lush, green outdoor area with terrace and indoor seating; an inviting bar area; and a relaxed dining room.
Italian-American comfort food at its finest, with superb New York-style pizzas and pastas. Chef Vinny, who insists on using produce from local farms, serves up spicy homemade sausages, locally inspired char siu carbonara and a ‘Bronx’ pizza that will transport you straight to the mean streets. At the weekend, come for their mouthwatering barbecues, freshly baked ciabatta and homemade pickles.
The 24-hour Flying Pan diner offers traditional English fry-ups, fluffy, American-style pancakes and creamy eggs Benedict – all sloshed down with their signature bottomless coffee. It’s a great venue if you’re riding solo and takeaways are available (but you’ll miss out on all the extra coffee).
Oolaa covers all the bases, from healthy salads to classic breakfast options, hearty steaks and pork belly. The massive open space means that they can accommodate large groups throughout the day and their long hours mean you can head there early morning for a cappuccino and toast, or do a late boozy lunch with friends.
