We love Portobello, it’s perfect for breakfast, brunch or afternoon tea (they also do dinner). The menu is great (breakfast, sandwiches, crepes, waffles, cakes…) and the décor is very “Portobello, London”. Tables are very small but this is what makes the place special. It’s in the middle of Soho so the atmosphere outside is great also.

Cakes are amazing and well displayed so sometimes it’s difficult to choose as they all look rich and delicious.

One thing that was peculiar on a recent visit was the chocolate truffle cake. It was a chocolate cake with real truffle inside. Not chocolate truffle but real truffle. Having never seen this before, let alone tasted it (unfortunately for us the taste was not good), we expressed our surprise at this dish to one of the girls working there but we were told that “customers like it”. Still unconvinced.

Apart from the chocolate truffle cake, Portobello is a special place!

We picked Portobello for our tea time. It was packed and people were waiting, at times, to get a table.

Its a nice place to have tea and cakes. We did not try the coffee so I do not know much about that...

The apple tart was devine so I ordered a lemon tart as well....

Service was normal: quick without smiling. We have been to many cafes in Hong Kong. Smiling is not fashionable but you can get used to it. I am sure it is nothing personal.
