Address: G/F, 1 Gage Street, Central
I love discovering new bakeries and snack shops to visit, so when I came across this little gem of a bakery I was very excited. Situated on Gage Street, ABC Bakery ostensibly looks Chinese but actually sells a wide range of Western cakes and pastries.

Walking into the store, you’ll be greeted by the fragrant waft of baked goods streaming from the kitchen at the back. After a few minutes of contemplation I decided to choose a chocolate walnut tart as well as a box of ABC Bakery’s famous nougats. The treats were very well-priced- perfect for a pick-me-up in the middle of the day.
The nougats didn’t disappoint- wrapped in edible rice paper, I felt like I was eating mini snicker bars without chocolate (and I guess without the guilt as well!) The nougats were soft yet chewy but not overly sweet, which complemented the brittle texture of the nuts.
All in all, ABC Bakery is definitely a stop to make if you’re feeling peckish at any time of the day, with cheap, comforting and sweet treats.
