The Library Cafe, Hong Kong

If I may politely chip in. When I visited this establishment and took a look at the menu I was somewhat puzzled to figure out how this establishment merited a listing on happycow. The primary business of this eatery appears to be selling parts of dead animals with the vego side a peripheral aspect. I am more than happy to be enlightened of course.

Cons: Geared to eating meat

This little cafe serves very fresh, conscientious dishes.
Not many vegan choices, but those that are vegan are very tasty.

I usually have their avocado/tomato sauce/sun-dried tomato/herbs/greens sandwich on thick French bread. This is sumptuous. Else you can have the vegan pasta dish. Both dishes cost about under $80 each. A fresh mint tea goes very well with either.

I must add that the cafe uses butter to cook the mushroom in the sandwich. Although it's all vegetables, a vegan client must tell the waitress ahead of time not to use butter and they usually complies. I've pressed them several times to be careful with this, to serve with sensitivity to a client's dietary preferences.

Service by three youngsters, very courteous and helpful.
