The extension of the MTR island line has brought new life to this old stone pond. Cafés and restaurants are rapidly blooming around Shek Tong Tsui, bringing new blood to this old district. Lifetastic is one of the few newbies in the pond, offering a relaxing atmosphere for customers to come and enjoy life. Large glass windows, vibrant artwork and cozy sofas offers a sense of tranquility and comfort as soon as you step through their doors.
Their signature strawberry watermelon cake; almond base, rose water cream, fresh watermelon and strawberries form distinct, uniform layers that makes the OCD in me purr. Flavours were light and refreshing, a wonderfully balanced and attractive dessert.
Having already drank a fair amount of coffee that day, I went with the smaller piccolo latte. Coffee was rich and smooth, although I felt that ordering tea would’ve been a better choice to go with the cake.
As a huge fan of Loveramics products, I couldn’t resist staring at their colourful array of Loveramics cups and teapots, wishing I could take them all home. Bonus cookie points!
Lifetastic is a great place to be to enjoy life. Bring a book to read, curl up on the sofa with a drink and let the hours go by, because what’s the point of life if we are too busy to live it?
