Previously in Fo Tan, Lucy Coffee n Food has moved to Tsuen Wan where it now sits in an industrial building a good distance away from the MTR station. I’d wanted check out the café for a long time but had never bothered because both old and new locations are super far from where I live. It would take me more time getting there than chilling there!
However, I finally buckled under the attractiveness of Lucy Coffee n Food’s interior architecture and went on a weekday afternoon. Getting there from MTR Tsuen Wan Station took more time than expected, and when my friend and I got there, we had just missed the lunch sets offered until 2PM. Oh well, no big deal. We did get a waft of the freshly baked homemade bread in the café, though, which we happily ordered a side of to start our afternoon off. Didn’t expect to find that there!
Although we didn’t get a drink along with our food, the advantage of getting to Lucy Coffee n Food past lunch hour was that it was empty. But who knows, it’s probably not very crowded even during lunch times on weekdays anyway thanks to its distance from civilisation. Either way, I was happy to pass up a free cup of coffee for an unlimited amount of time to take photos of the place. Much of a foodie as I am, I think I’m still more of a camwhore. 😉
Lucy Coffee n Food is furnished with an assortment of knick-knacks, from wooden crates to brightly coloured fabrics to an assortment of plants, both alive and dried, scattered all over. The result resembles a cosy warehouse that would’ve had my friend and I glued to our seats, chatting for hours, if not for the cold air conditioning.
Those worried about their weight can be assured that the food served in Lucy Coffee n Food is healthy. The menu currently features nine dishes, four of which are vegetarian. Even the meaty dishes are heavily plant-based. I went for the Kale & Quinoa Salad, which came with a generous amount of roasted vegetables and a naturally sweet mixture of raisins and quinoa. It was oh. So. Good. I have to remake this combination at home!
Oh, Lucy Coffee n Food. If only you weren’t so far away! Not only is Tsuen Wan on the end of the red line on the MTR, but the café is also a heck of a walk away from city centre. I’d be there in a heartbeat if I lived closer or if the café opened a second branch even just slightly closer to home. Either way, I really don’t mind revisiting if I happen to be in Tsuen Wan again – though that is unlikely because I don’t like to spend over an hour travelling. So Lucy Coffee n Food, please, please, please move closer to Hong Kong island!
