the coffee, for those that know what a flat white is, is very good, they have a bunch of snacks and juices as well as breakfast, which was my usual choice rather then the bland hotel food

Quite frankly it's getting to the point the I may as well pay double somewhere else! The food quality has plummeted and friendly staff can't compensate any more! You need to step it up a notch!!

Went here because it was drizzling, and looked cozy albeit somewhat middle of nowhere. Mediocre coffee, snobby staff and really bland food. Its not like the place was busy but the staff kept sighing and looked really unwilling to help when we asked for salt, butter and a knife. Will not be missed. Cant imagine why anyone would go out...

The site that Zambra was on has been entirely renovated and is now the casual restaurant 'Bolaven', serving coffee and 'Indochinese' cuisine. Mezzanine floor is closed, no wi-fi (was discontinued a few months before Zambra's closure unfortunately). I had just a coffee on this visit - very good coffee. Staff are the old Zambra staff, and the menu sounded ok.... More

Contrary to what some reviews say, there appears to be no free wifi. The coffee is just so-so, and the food rather uninspiring. The staff are friendly, and proximity to the Novotel Century is a plus.

We stopped by Cafe Zambra in Wan Chai yesterday to sample their coffee drinks. This was our first visit to this business and will probably be our last. We had a plain iced-coffee, which was fine and tasted as expected (rating 3 of 5). We also ordered the coffee (Kenya blend) of the day. Unfortunately, this was an unpleasant drink.... More

This is a great cafe to lounge and read a book in. Mushroom risotto and juicy grilled chicken was excellent. Free wi-fi, good air conditioning, excellent coffee, and lounging couches. Brownie was a no go as it was too dry and crumbly. Who enjoys a crumbly brownie? A variety of coffee blends to choose from is a big plus for... More

Always get a great cup of coffee here, time to avoid the lattes and choose a great coffee blend.

Staying in Wan Chai / Causeway Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Wan Chai / Causeway Bay
Wan Chai and Causeway Bay are the retail centres of Hong Kong Island. Filled with shops, malls and restaurants, both areas are bustling with people – tourists and locals alike. Causeway Bay has one of the highest rents on the planet, and is a bit more polished and modern than its Wan Chai counterpart. Beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye – find boutique stores in the above ground floors of buildings and wander into side streets to find interesting restaurants and shops tucked away from the main roads. Wan Chai especially has experienced a modern revival in recent times, with an influx of trendy restaurants and bars around the Star Street area. In addition, both areas contain many of Hong Kong’s iconic tourist attractions worthy of your visit.
