Ninetys in Hong Kong is the ideal brunch spot. They’ve got an excellent menu offering a wide arrange of dishes, from delicately plated salmon tartare to brimming bowls of siu wan rice. But we came for the coffee and in contrast to their lengthy lunch menu, they’ve got a very streamlined coffee flavor selection—fruity or choco. We picked the latter and had it as a long black.
Roasted and custom blended in Melbourne, Australia (where Ninetys has its roots) the choco blend hits hazelnut, milk chocolate, and caramel notes. They serve it with a small plate of dried blueberries on the side, which we were instructed to eat after every sip. The verdict? It’s rich and bold with a tinge of sweetness, just as chocolate should be. And the mild tartness of the blueberries really does complete the experience.
Whether you’re looking for a place to have a hefty meal with the whole family or just a cup of coffee by yourself, Ninetys checks each box.
