The name (Veygo) had me intrigued even before my visit. There are numerous definitions including a link to horoscopes and the literal meaning to ‘take something from’ or to be a ‘state of being’. What the connection to Coffee is still to be discovered however perhaps there isn’t one? Does there need to be one?

Situated in an area of Wan Chai just off the bustling market and strangely located squashed between a hardware store and a material shop, Veygo has this street monopolized for a coffee break.

It was busy on arrival with a surplus of small tables for it’s clients to enjoy a wide ranging menu. Orders are ready, one Flat White.

Arriving in a reasonable sized mug with a glossy smooth top this one could be good. A crisp depth of flavours were mixed through the flowing milky content and delivered within minutes of ordering. The coffee itself was tasty, well sized and reasonable in cost however the one down side had to be the interior. Lots of seats meant too much furniture and too little space. Does this outweigh the coffee?

Definitely worth a revisit and when in Wan Chai up there with the best to choose from.
