Sweets for the Sweet

From cookies to macarons, where to head for a dose of the most adored sweet treats in the 852

Hong Kong has got us covered when it comes to desserts and confectionary. With access to both fantastic local bakeries and some of the best international bakers and pastry chefs around, we’re never more than a few metres away from a spot to satisfy a craving for something sugary. We’ve narrowed down the sweets selection to six of the most popular baked goods in our fair city.

Not much beats the aroma of a batch of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. Though they’re relatively quick and simple to make, most Hong Kongers don’t have the luxury of an oven in their kitchens. Instead, we turn to one of these bakeries when we’re in need of a homemade cookie fix (tip: in the hunt for the best cookies, the nose knows!).


We tried our first Cookieboy last year at Quarry Bay’s Tong Chong Street Market, and we were hooked. Founded by pastry chef Ryan Zimmer, who formerly headed up the pastry team at JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong, Cookieboy’s cookies are soft, chewy and utterly delicious. For us, it’s a toss-up between the classic chocolate chunk and peanut butter varieties, but innovative seasonal flavours such as matcha and apple pie are also available. Order online to have them delivered straight to your door for some serious midnight munching.
