Cafe Loisl | Hong Kong - Viennese Coffeehouse
Cafe Loisl is a Viennese coffeehouse that serves organic coffee and Viennese specialty drinks along with homemade cakes that are made fresh on a daily basis. This little gem is located near Po Hing Fong and I stumbled upon it after visiting Cafe Deadend one time. The cafe has a few small tables on both inside and outside while the remote location guarantees peace and quiet. Even on a weekend, it wasn't too busy and I saw people reading and working in the cafe.
Aside from the tarts, I was told that all of the cakes were made by the owners of the cafe.
Wiener Melange ($36) - I ended up trying this Viennese drink that is similar to a cappuccino with 1/3 espresso, milk and froth. The coffee flavor was mild but overall the texture was velvety smooth. [4/5]
Green Tea Sensation ($48) - I'm not a big fan of apple strudels in general so I decided to try the green tea cake instead which looked very pretty. The green tea flavor wasn't that strong though while I was more impressed by the icy apricot layer which tasted refreshing like a sorbet. [3.5/5]
Verdict - I enjoyed the relaxing and quaint atmosphere at Cafe Loisl and would come back to try more of their Viennese drinks and desserts.
