Freshly Roasted: The Aussie-inspired cafe’s fifth branch in Causeway Bay’s Lee Gardens boasts its own roasting room — where you can learn to roast your own coffee beans — and an upgraded menu featuring separate options for day and night as well as an exclusive menu of fine dining dishes such as sous vide Australian lamb.
Look & Feel: Located on the first floor of Lee Gardens Two, Ninetys Roastery is just as industrial-chic and contemporary as its other branches, featuring plenty of brushed grey concrete, Nordic-style furniture and cozy sofas. There’s also more greenery at this branch to create a urban park vibe, such as the stunning and eye-catching plant from Botanic Union in the middle of the shop.
On the Menu: You’ll find two main types of coffee at Ninetys Roastery: custom espresso blends from Melbourne-based Zest Specialty Coffee Roasters, and pourover single origin coffees from Taster’s Coffee in Taiwan. On top of their signature fusion brunch dishes like Holy Crab Benedict (HK$168) and the new Chicken Waffle (HK$148), Ninetys Roastery has launched a brand new fine-dining menu for their fifth location. Inspired by Nordic restaurants, the new dishes are all about premium ingredients. For instance, the Wagyu Striploin Openface Sandwich (HK$368) uses M8 wagyu, while the sous vide French chicken uses corn-fed yellow chicken.
Meet the Founder: Bruno Koo is a coffee championship judge and American world latte art championship first runner up.
FYI: With its own roasting room, Ninetys Roastery offers coffee roasting workshops where you can roast your own coffee beans to your desired flavors.
