Harlan's Cake Shop @ The ONE


Harlan's Cake Shop is located on the 4th floor of shopping mall The ONE in Tsim Sha Tsui. Its counter is filled with beautiful cakes delighting all passers-by.


We had the Rose Champagne and the Dark Grey Chocolate Cake, two beauties that were unfortunately not as tasty as they were pretty.



For drinks, J chose the regular Coffee {HK$28}, which he said to be one of the worst coffees he's ever had, and I went for the Caffe Orientale, which was good but not worth the price {HK$36}.


The sit-in area is limited to the three tables you can see on the picture above, which I didn't fancy that much because of their lack of privacy and the fact that I don't like low tables that make you bend over every time you want to reach your food. 

Visited on: January 20, 2013
Overall Quality: 2*
Price: Cakes prices start at HK$35
Value for Money: 2*
Would I recommend it? Don't bother, these cakes are only good to take nice pictures.

  23. Xènia,

    No sé per què no havia anat mai a aquest mall i em va ENCANTAR!! Trobo que és, de moment, el que més m'agrada de HK. Molt edgy. Quan vaig veure aquest lloc de cakes vaig pensar en tu :) Sort que no els vaig provar...

    Petons!

  24. If there is one cake you will always remember, this is your wedding cake Toronto. I have ordered mine for a pastry shop with a exceptional range of décors and flavours. I could hear all the wow in the room when the cake arrived and the silence when it got served!
