Charlie Brown and Peanuts friends aren’t as popular in the Philippines as Mickey Mouse or Tom & Jerry. We do know Snoopy, though. But back when I was a child, I would always catch Peanuts in RPN-9 (although with much difficulty as I can’t figure out the show’s airing schedule exactly). My favorites were Charlie Brown and Lucy Van Pelt 😀
This is why I was so happy to find out that there’s Charlie Brown Cafe in Hong Kong. The first time I saw it was in 2006 but I never got the chance to go there. I always passed by it in my later trips but unfortunately, I never got to try their food. Last December, I was more than ecstatic to know that Charlie Brown Cafe is just right in front of our hotel!
Charlie Brown Cafe is not just a cafe because they serve more than just coffee and pastries. In fact, I didn’t order any cake or coffee.
We went there for breakfast and ordered mini-ham and cheese croissants ~
With orange juice ~
And pancakes with maple syrup served with some salad ~
Charlie Brown Cafe boasts itself of their specialty cakes that you can order in advance for special occasions.
There’s really nothing extraordinary with the food at Charlie Brown Cafe but I would still highly recommend it because it is an eyebrow-raising experience the first time you see it inside.
As tourists and locals say, the Cafe celebrates all things Peanuts. The walls are colorfully decorated with Peanuts characters display. Up close, they’re so cute!
Every table has a stencil drawing of a random Peanuts character.
Even their ceiling is swamped with Peanuts lights and designs!
As if those are not enough, they scattered more Peanuts around the room. Here’s Charlie Brown-big holding the menu ~
And here’s Charlie Brown-small waiting to be hugged ~
Snoopy also sat around with a cup of coffee. There’s a chair beside him where you can pose for some wacky photos 🙂
Our entire meal was less than HK$75. It’s not too pricey and the food was good. I loved the croissants but they’re mini so two pieces weren’t enough 😛
Charlie Brown Cafe is listed as one of the best cafes in the Tsim Sha Tsui area so it’s definitely one of those places you should consider when thinking of where to eat. Besides, it’s a rare cafe and I heard is only operating in Hong Kong and Korea (not sure if they have one in the United States or in other parts of the world). You definitely wouldn’t want to pass up on the chance if you’re in Hong Kong.
