Life Cafe in Central, Hong Kong to shut down on Dec 12th. Free food & drink farewell!

Sadly, one of my favorite vegetarian cafes, Life Cafe in Soho is set to close down after this Saturday, December  12th. 

Astronomical rents are the death knell to this pioneer organic veg cafe which has been in business for over 10 years

Free food and drink will be served to on the cafe's last day... this Saturday
I will truly miss their pesto pasta salad!
