From Fo Tan to Tsuen Wan and now to Cheung Sha Wan, Lucy Coffee & Food has moved a fair few times since its initial opening several years ago. The bakery café now occupies a small shop space on the outskirts of the city, offering delicious homemade bread and cakes straight out of the oven.
A flair for vegan food and artisan baked goods has given Lucy Coffee & Food a cult following. Good food, packaged neatly inside chic industrial interiors, means that the little café is never without a visitor. Everyone just seems to want a (literal) slice of the cake.

Sizing down from its previous venues doesn’t mean that Lucy Coffee & Food loses out in terms of decor. The new location is furnished with a specially curated selection of adornments, drawing the spotlight on an eye-catching vintage vinyl player placed atop a large wooden crate in the centre of the room. Pots of giant leafed greens line the edges of the café to accent the relaxing environment, likening the small space to that of a cosy warehouse. There’s truly no better place for an afternoon tea than at Lucy’s.
If you’re visiting with the intention to try out all the artisan bakery items, make sure to arrive early in the morning. By the late afternoon, most cakes have already been snatched up by hungry customers in search of a sweet bite. One of the many selections on rotation at Lucy Coffee & Food is the French Fig Almond Tart. The nutty almond base is pleasantly sweet without being overpowering and glazed with thinly sliced figs arranged in the shape of a rose petal on top. Delightful in both looks and taste, it’s a treat that ticks all the boxes.
If you happen to be in the neighbourhood, drop by Lucy Coffee & Food for the vintage interior and the noteworthy food. With just four tables in the café, the wait for a seat might take a while, but once you bite into the homemade cakes, it’ll all be worth it. 🙂
