If you have been stressed out by your exit from Central or you are preparing yourself for the expected stress of entering the manic population density of inner Des Vouex Road Central then Amber Coffee is a welcome stop. If you blink you will miss it nestled on the side of the road between 7-11 stores and suit tailors.

A relatively new store that serves a selection of GOOD coffee choices and belly filling baked goods. The barista was so welcoming and was quick to identify the type of taste I was looking for. The notorious flat white was delivered in a beautiful Chinese styled tea cup and it looked the business!

Whilst watching the population of Hong Kong speed by from the window seats the flat white was smooth, not too intense (I went for the medium roast) and just the correct temperature. The only thing I wanted was more of it in the cup! This is very much worth the caffeine hit and time out if in the Central area.
