The Alchemist is a traveller café in a less well-travelled part of Kowloon. It’s quirky décor includes postcards and travel guides from around the world, as well as a mini travel library. The menu is an East meets West fusion, with an Asian interpretation of an English breakfast being a popular choice. The drinks list at The Alchemist is impressive, with every imaginable flavour of tea, along with juices, smoothies, and coffee. Local couch surfing meetings are held here too, and rumour has it you can even swap travel books for food discounts!
