C'est la B - Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong
During my visit to Hong Kong, one of the shopping centres I shopped at on numerous occasions, was Harbour City in Tsim Sha Tsui. I had always been meaning to check out C'est la B, a cafe and cakery opened by Bonnie Gokson, of Sevva fame. An early lunch provided the perfect opportunity.

The temptations on offer
It's a very pretty and whimsical little cafe. with butterflies and pastel colours throughout. I especially love the hanging teapot lights!
Some of the cakes in the display
We decide to have a small early lunch and choose the lunch time set to share, which includes a soup, bento and cake of your choice.
I'm enamoured by the gorgeous cup and saucer more than anything!
There were a few bento choices, each with a theme. I can't remember the name of this one, but it consisted of penne pasta and meatballs; prawn cutlets and a salad. Unfortunately, it wasn't that great. The pasta was quite chewy, and the other components were average. The table next to us had the bento with korean short rib and rice, which looked better.
Green tea latte
Finally, dessert time! The mousse cake is quite nice - light with the fragrant lychee shining through.
A very nice venue (with matching steep prices), though I found the service neither here or there, it wasn't a busy time but it was still quite slow. I would definitely come here for coffee and the gorgeous cakes, but skip out on the savoury food.
