In case the name hasn’t already tipped you off, Charlie Brown Cafe is a Peanuts-themed cafe featuring characters from the famous comic strip. From the moment you set foot in the place and take the stairs up, you’re surrounded by pictures/sculptures of Charlie Brown and friends.
The cakes shaped like the characters’ heads are a little creepy, but everything else is pretty cute.
Can’t have a themed cafe without merchandise galore. The massive Woodstock in the centre comes with an equally massive price tag – HK$2580 (~US$332/~S$472). 0_O
Tried the chocolate cake with Woodstock on it. It’s got some crispy bits in there to cut through the richness of the chocolate, which was nice. The yellow figure had a lemony scent but was mostly sugar, so it was left behind.
Also had the orange hot chocolate with Snoopy’s silhouette “printed” on the foam. One of my favourite flavour combinations is that of orange and chocolate, and this didn’t disappoint.
It was surprisingly quiet when I was there on a Sunday afternoon. I wouldn’t mind going back to try the other items on the menu. Needless to say, food wouldn’t be a priority if you’re a fan of the Peanuts comic strip, but approach the merchandise section with caution!
