A minute walk off of Long Ping MTR Station, Exit B, there is a little neighborhood cafe called Accro Coffee. The thing that drew me into this cafe was the huge sign that boasted World Siphonist Champion. Though I am not a coffee connoisseur, I do like my coffee.
I've been here a lot recently because I have been trying to escape the sound of drills (the perks of living in Hong Kong…lots of buildings being constructed…and lots of apartments undergoing renovations).
When it's boiling hot outside, I can take refuge in Accro's air-conditioned space. When I'm tired from a long day of work, I can sip a cup of Joe and let my mind wander. When I want to get away from the Yuen Long crowds, I can sit in solitude at one of Accro's tables. When I want to finish a book that I have been mulling over for weeks, I can read the hell out of that book at Accro because of the chilled vibe.
I've only indulged in the coffee here, which is pretty good. I believe they serve snacks and, definitely, cakes as well. Though this place is probably most proud of their siphoning of coffee, I think the ambience is the draw for me.
