Causeway Bay Hong Kong Cafe at Causeway Point Part 3
Before the second world war, eateries were established in some Hong Kong estates serving Chinese styled breakfast items on their menus such as : fried fritters, Char Siew Buns, etc.
After the war, Hong Kong was influenced by the westerners, at that time only selected high end cafeterias served western styled food at exorbitant prices and do not welcome Chinese patrons.
In order to cater to Chinese patrons, Hong Kong eateries sprouted offering western styled food to attract these diners with their affordable rates. Initially these eateries offered only coffee, tea, red bean desserts, sandwiches, toasts, and eventually expanded to offer Po Lou Buns, egg tarts, and finally developed into full fledged Hong Kong Cafes.
Hong Kong Cafe is the answer to Hong Kong's market demand for affordable fast food with Chinese & Western items on the menu.
