I was so exciting to visit Brew Bros Coffee, knowing the coffee beans are from Melbourne.  Melbourne’s coffee was one of the best I’ve ever tasted in my life and nothing can compares to it.  Australia’s brunches are also incredible, they are so creative yet mindblowing, using the freshest ingredients and combinations of ingredients.  

The coffee here were good but not great, it’s probably much better than other coffee shops in HK that has caused an hype, but compared to Melbourne’s, it has still got a long way to go.  Despite a slight let down, the food was above average especially for the reasonable price it is charging diners. The brunch differs at different hours of the day, we were seated after 1130am, so the menu changes to the 1130am to 5pm. The Poached egg, smashed avocado on sourdough with bacon and dukkah was incredible and came with two poached eggs, although one of the egg yolks was overcooked and not runny.  My favourite was the Brioche french toast, salted mascarpone, caramel beurre, cinnamon soil and berries coulis which took 20 minutes to make and it was worth the wait.  This really reminds me of the brunches I have had in Australia, so colourful yet tasty!  The brioche french toast is so warm and soft, it went so well with the creamy salted mascarpone.  Lots of berries varieties – strawberries, goosberries and blueberries.  I would come back just to have this!

This is their second branch and I can see why it is so popular.  Hong Kong has many coffee shops and Brew Bros Coffee definitely stands out with their great coffee and delicious yet affordable food.  This really reminds me of the dining/brunch scene in Australia, the only thing missing are the hipsters baristas which i hope they will be coming soon!
