VIP Coffee & Cake Shop

Cha chaan tengs (or “tea restaurant” in Cantonese) have been around since the mid-1900s in Hong Kong, becoming popular for serving affordable tea drinks and dishes that blend Chinese and Western flavors. Hong Kong-style cafes have made their way to other parts of the world, including San Francisco. Enter VIP Coffee & Cake Shop. Everything at this spot on Broadway is comforting and hearty – the menu includes things like French toast, macaroni soup, and baked pork chops smothered in black pepper sauce over a bed of rice. Wash everything down with some iced lemon tea or Hong Kong-style milk tea, and then end your meal with one of the cafe’s many desserts, like the crowd-pleasing egg tarts. The super casual spot is great for a quick lunch, and since most of the dishes aren’t delicate, they travel well for takeout.
