Brunches are all the rage in Hong Kong (and the whole world) and who doesn’t love a long, leisurely, luxurious brunch in the 852? When you have visitors in town, and want to impress, why not take them to one of these top brunch spots?
The Clipper Lounge is a sophisticated and cosy all-rounder. The food is very good, the choice of champagne is spot-on and if you’re a fan of lobster you will love it here. It’s also a nice choice for a date or a small and classy get-together with friends; it’s at its best in winter when the space feels warm and welcoming.
Best for: An intimate, indulgent gathering
Do it right: Settle in, take your time and really soak up the ambience.

If you want to impress visitors to the city, or have a romantic brunch just for two, you can’t go past the Parlour. With its old colonial charm, exceptional service and quietly romantic ambiance – not to mention free-flowing Perrier-Jouët champagne – the Parlour is a personal favourite.
Best for: Romance
Do it right: Sit outside on the verandah for the full experience.

With the option of choosing between Brasserie on the Eighth and Nicholini’s you are spoiled for choice at the Conrad. When it comes to sheer quantity of food, this hotel brunch is a winner. It’s a little on the pricey side, and it’s definitely not the place for a date, but it’s a great option for a group of very hungry friends.
Best for: Choice
Do it right: Book a table by the window and wear loose-waisted pants.

Best for: Families with small children
Do it right: Hike up or get the Peak Tram, and work up an appetite before you get there.

Offering one of the best locations, right on the harbour at Ocean Terminal, La Locanda is also reasonably priced and has excellent service. The weekend brunch buffet is very generous, and it’s the obvious choice for lovers of Italian food and vegetarians.
Best for: A good all-rounder – for families, friends and the famished
Do it right: Make a day of it: head over on the Star Ferry, stroll through TST, and, when brunch is done, brunch shop till you drop at Harbour City.
