Cafe Gray Deluxe @ Upper House, Hong Kong

It’s unbelievable but after all those scones and cookies at our afternoon tea at JW Marriott we went to have coffee at Upper House, a luxury hotel  which was in the next building. Tisay really wanted to show me the hotel’s coffee shop. I’ve seen pictures of Upper House and I really wanted to see it too.

The first picture was the elegant entrance to Cafe Gray Deluxe which was on the 49th floor of the hotel.

It was around 5:00 pm and there were still lots of diners enjoying afternoon tea.

Here’s their afternoon tea menu. I would like to try it one of these days since it’s not as overwhelming as our buffet.

We were there for drinks only so this menu was what we concentrated on.

I ordered the Valrhona hot chocolate which was pricey at HK$65. When I took a sip I was flabbergasted at how awful it was. It tasted like milk with a teaspoon of cocoa powder. There was barely any chocolate taste. I requested the waiter if I could change it since it didn’t taste like hot chocolate and I was relieved he agreed. I hope this was just a fluke. How on earth can they serve something so bland like this. Valrhona should get mad.

At least the coffee was strong and soothing against the chilly weather. Ahhh… good coffee solves everything even a too full tummy.

Naturally we had to check out the restroom.

They made good use of the corner view by putting the nice lavatory there.

A nice touch were the small vanities for women who want to touch up their makeup.

Another view of the entrance with the lights on. Really dramatic!

I wish I got to see the hotel rooms too.

At the main entrance of Upper House I spied this neat vertical fireplace.
