An educator teaches us how it’s done, opening a hidden cafe with a unique charm:  Midsummer Night, the dawn of a new initiative by a college lecturer who’s fascinated with film & television.


Crowd-Free Oasis

Midsummer Night in OUG; hundreds of potential customers have driven past this street in recent weeks, since it’s where MyBurgerLab is located, but Midsummer Night is on the first floor farther up the road, concealed without a signboard above an auto workshop, so it’s still been an oasis of crowd-free calm so far.

Midsummer-Night-at-OUG-Restaurant-Review2True to its name, Midsummer Night’s hours are mostly after sunset – 7pm-midnight, Tuesdays-Fridays, & 3pm-midnight on weekends – since its owner still has a full-time college day-job.


Cave For Movie Buffs

Midsummer Night – which is also run by genuinely warm & hospitable people – is a true cave for movie geeks, filled with posters & postcards for some of Hollywood & Hong Kong’s best-known extravaganzas.


Love the focus on the nineties; we remember Meet Joe Black, Tin Cup, Heat & even The Arrival (Charlie Sheen!) very well.


Home-Made Desserts

Simple & satisfying home-made desserts are available here, from rum-&-raisin cakes to chocolate cheesecakes.


Artisan Roast

The coffee blends are supplied by Artisan Roast; there are cold brews & also special creations like the ‘Trouble White’ (featuring single origin coffee with milk, named because it takes more effort than the norm to prepare).


We really like Midsummer Night; we think others will do. Expect to hear more about both in the months ahead.
