18 seats (I counted !) in this very tiny place. Served fast enough (but not very fast) by one single lady, the other one being in the kitchen and serious about her work: do not try too hard to get a smile ! But the veg linguine were good and tasty, as was the nice slice of pumpkin + almond cake: wholesome food in a small but very decorated brasserie, what do you want ? Not cheap for the fare, but still reasonable. A happy find !
On the way from Tin Hau temple to the MTR. A tiny café at Electric road just in front of the MTR entrance. Café Eos only has <10 seats. The café sells western food, from salad, pasta, pizza and desserts. Ordered mixed greens and iced coffee which is quite ok. Then going to Kowloon park through undersea MTR.
Less than 10 tables, a tiny 'Hole in the Wall' Brasserie, with the open kitchen beyond, this excellent and economical eatery is a well-kept secret in the Tin Hau area. Try the Seafood Risotto (fresh clams and squid) with the Creme Brûlée to finish (their Creme Brûlée is possibly the best in town that I know), all washed down with a simple house wine. This is not 'Fine Dining' which so often equals 'pretentious and overpriced', but is the right quality at the right price. 'Trip Adviser' asks if a place does 'Cheap Eats', not sure what this means? McDonalds? Cafe Eos is also nice and quiet. No ghastlies yelling at each other.
We went for tea on a weekend. The ginger cake was sold out and i ordered a coffee cake, which was light but rich coffee taste. The place is really small, so small that waitress cannot even move around. Price is reasonable.
