Pacific Coffee on Park Island

Pacific Coffee has opened on Park Island! (The photo below is Copyright of "Mark", who posted this on the Park Island Blog earlier today).
The cafe is located in the Park Island Town Square which you walk though just as you get off the ferry. (Is the official name "Shell Square", or am I imagening that?)
I must say, the cafe looks really nice, with nice big lounge chairs, and I think it is an excellent edition to the growing number of shops on Park Island.
There are some places in HK that I think a Pacific Coffee or a Starbucks should simply not be - Lamma Island is a good example. But for Park Island, and the types of residents we have here I think its fine.
I think Pacific Coffee is definately better than Starbucks, but having said that I also think Pacific Coffee is not quite as good as it used to be when it was first established by the ex-pat guy who later sold it (for 200 million I think it was). I will probably keep going to the Rosanna cafe in the Ma Wan Villa…

Where to get good coffee on Park Island

As more expats, who appreciate (and crave) good coffee move to Park Island, the question as to where to get good coffee on Park Island is becoming more common.
I am a very fussy coffee drinker, and somewhat of a coffee connoisseur, so I struggle to find good coffee anywhere in HK. To put things into perspective, I would rank a Starbucks coffee at around 2/10, Pacific Coffee at 3/10, Café O and McCafe at around 4/10, and Press Room and Classifieds at 7/10.
I tried a coffee at Café Roma on Park Island and would rate it at 4/10 (although for many people the coffee there would be considered entirely fine).
Anyhow, a number of people recommended me a café in the Ma Wan village, called Rosanna Tea Room, so I thought I would check it out.
See below some pictures of the café.
