Piccolo and Flat White
Hazel & Hershey
Shop 3, 69 Peel Street
Central, Hong Kong
10:00 – 19:00 Daily
Hazel and Hershey is one of those places that we wanted to love … it’s small, has a cute side patio, nice places to sit, decent enough service, WIFI, magazines …. in short everything you want in a coffee shop. And besides coffee, they sell all sort of coffee related paraphernalia – and I mean all sorts! So it is obvious they are way into coffee. And I think that may be the issue; In ‘trying so hard’, they lose some of the ease and joy that is actually drinking the coffee; no matter how much energy you put in the making of it.
I mean – if you are staying close, then it is the best brew in the short radius; however we found ourselves trekking the extra 15 min walk to get to Fuel for a better cup; albeit in a more corporate atmosphere.
Definitely stay away from americanos – as we found out is the case in most of Hong Kong’s coffee shops, they are not great. Instead we would suggest the Flat White or the excellent Piccolos.
If you are looking to make a hobby of it; Hazel & Hershey offers barista and aficionado classes.
