A Pop Up Cafe at C-Dou @ Urban Coffee Roaster

On Pound Lane in Sheung Wan, Urban Coffee Roaster has recently set up a six-month pop-up at C-Dou, an arts and culture rental space. While they already have two branches in Kowloon side, this is the first and temporary location in Hong Kong Island.
The space is very cosy and I absolutely adore the front window seating.

Menu

The menu mainly covers some brunch options along with salads, pastas and two signature desserts. First comes an egg dish which consists of a soft poached egg and hollandaise sauce that has a creamy buttery flavor; slow-cooked salmon and charcoal bun.

Despite one of the poached eggs is slightly overdone, I still enjoy the sweet and fluffy charcoal bun so much.

As mentioned, the banana toast with caramelised banana is a signature here. It is basically toasting a piece of simple banana bread, served with crunchy sugared and halved banana slices, with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of chopped pistachio.

The banana bread has a strong cinnamon flavor, but lacking the moist and dense qualities I prefer. The sour cream also provides a pretty nice tartness while the pistachio nuts also give a nice crunchy touch.

Last but not least, their coffee menu features over a dozen coffee beans and they serve hand-pour coffee in house. I am offered to try one of their recommendation which is made through a natural process, with a floral, tropical fruits and winey flavor.

The glasses in two sizes give us different experiences: the larger one makes a great aroma, whereas the small one gives a much concentrated flavor.

After all, my favourite is surely their hearty sweet potato latte, tastes very natural and I have asked for soya milk base ❤
