It’s another lazy Saturday afternoon, and I need a coffee!
If there’s one drink on this planet that I cannot live without, I think it’d be coffee.
“I only need coffee on days ending with Y”
I’m not an expert about coffee, so I won’t be able to throw at you all the expert terms like the acidity, the body, the origin of coffee and so on… For me, a coffee is a drink that wakes me up, gives me the energy to last for the day, and tastes pleasant!
For me personally, I really enjoy drinking a cup of coffee at a nice chilled cafe with a touch of their own identity. Instead of coffee chains, I like individual cafes more. They usually have their own decoration, their own feel, and very importantly, the coffee usually tastes better!
There are so many nice chill cafes when I used to work in Sheung Wan, such as Coco Espresso, Brew Bros, Elephant Grounds and so on… However, when my office moved to Tsim Sha Tsui East, it was a bit difficult to find some nice cafes with good coffee. Well, this was the case until I discovered “N1 Coffee & Co”!
This place is a little cafe on Mody Road, the entrance of it is a bit hidden, so you may not be able to recognise it when you walk past. I love the decoration of this place, it’s got one of my favourite building element – bare concrete!! Inside the cafe, there’s also a Merry-Go-Round horse as a decoration piece, which makes the interior very unique! The identity of the cafe is Mint Green, which gives it a bit of cool refreshed feeling to it. I absolutely love the interior of this cafe!!!
Now about the coffee and food… They serve daily lunch sets here, ranging from spaghetti to salad to sandwiches, which gives you quite some variety of choices, they also do All Day Breakfast here. To be honest, I didn’t have much expectations about the food when I first walked in, I was here more for the coffee. However, to my surprised, the food actually tastes quite good here.
Now about the coffee… Before I even talk about the taste of the coffee, let’s talk about the presentation! We came here in a group of three, and all 3 of our coffee got different latte art on it. The barista here is very passionate about his coffee, and won’t serve it unless he thinks they are presentable, and tastes good! Now back to the taste… Like what I’ve mentioned previously, I’m no expert at coffee, I just think it tastes very smooth, and the aroma is very strong, which is already good enough for me.
“You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy a coffee, and that’s pretty close”
Generally speaking, if you want to have a relaxed lunch with a good cup of coffee in the TST area, N1 Coffee & Co would be a great choice! If you ever pay a visit, let me know what you think about them.
Beware, this is a place where you can easily spend the whole afternoon here 🙂
