Breakfast on the Beach at Limewood 

Summer bites: seasonal dishes and culinary experiences we will be enjoying this summer
Nothing like a brekkie on the beach to kick off the day. Drawing inspiration from the epic beachside brekkie scene found in Bali, Limewood is opening its doors a few hours earlier on weekends and welcoming you to enjoy the brand-new exciting breakfast menu. Whether you are in the mood for something sweet such as the Croissant (HKD 60) with wild honey, peanut butter and coconut spread, pineapple and papaya jam or something savoury such as the, Hong Kong Madame approved, House made Waffle with house-cured salmon (HKD 140), sour cream, avocado and poached egg or even something healthy such as the Chia & Almond Milk Pudding (HKD 120), you’ll get to enjoy it together with the sound of the crashing waves. Feeling like spicing things-up (it’s the weekend after all)? On top of refreshing juices and Vietnamese coffee, you’ll find a selection of naughty “MORNING SIPS’ which includes the Reverse Latte (HKD 50) – coffee, dark rum, milk, sugar – or the Garibaldi (HKD 50) – Campari, orange, coffee.
