While I'm not a coffee drinker, I know lots of people who swear this place is the best and I really enjoyed the smoothie.

Along with Why50 and Coco Espresso, Barista Jam makes flat whites & lattes closest to those I'm used to back in Wellington NZ and Sydney/Melbourne but the café is let down by very grubby walls that are way overdue for a re-paint. Their scrambled eggs are great too

Great cafe with a short lunch menu. Coffee is great even if service is generally a little bit slow. There is a bar with seating a small seating area in back and a larger communal seating area upstairs.

It's a hard core coffee place! Very Aussi:) There are gears and tools for DIY coffee fans to shop as well. A quick coffee is a wise choice. Food is less impressive than the coffee. Has lunch before. Memories fading. I can't remember anything over it.

We arrived around 10am and shop has jus opened. Coffee is great and food is alright (nothing to great but not bad - jus normal). Staff service is ok. Knowledge of coffee is really good with the ability to explain in detail of which coffee beans would be more suitable for my liking. Staff is also kind enough to explain... More

Great from a friendly group of baristas, good areas to sit and chat and look at computer. Great cakes and food if hungry and has space upstairs too. Very central to everything and close to all hotels in Sheung wan.

It is hard to find a western style breakfast place in Hong Kong, but Barista offers ham and cheese croissant and a good cup of flat white in the heart of Sheung Wan. It is reasonably priced for Hong Kong standard to get a Western style breakfast. They also do sandwiches and simple pasta dishes, good place to chill out... More

Coffee was okay for my liking. It was surprisingly quite comfortable sitting at the bar. There was cookies for you to take by giving any $ in return for donation. It was ok if you want to do a good deed but don't expect too much on the cookies. It was just not fresh and tasted so awkward.

Food was so-so, coffee was alright, service was okay. I won't go back there again even though the location is convenient.

Staying in Sheung Wan

Neighbourhood Profile
Sheung Wan
Unlike most of Hong Kong’s other popular districts, Sheung Wan welcomes wanderers with an easy-going, relaxed atmosphere. Art galleries are plentiful and boutique cafés are tucked away in every side street in the sub district known as “PoHo.” Browse through the vintage clothing and handmade leather goods stores – it’s no surprise fashionistas flock to this area. History enthusiasts will be rewarded with sites of beautiful architecture, reflecting Sheung Wan’s past as one of the earliest settlements by British forces. As night falls, the entertainment scene reveals itself to be just as laid back with its private kitchens, speakeasies and underground bars dotted throughout the area. When in Sheung Wan, everyday feels like the weekend.
