Fare It's Saturday morning, the edges aren't as sharp as they should be after Friday night's farewell to the week, and a good SoHo breakfast is on the mind. In this instance, 'good' pertaining to general well-being and seizing the day as opposed to calorific greasy goodness, and thereafter back to the sofa with an armful of DVDs or, alternatively, onward to the pub. Eat Right tries to tempt with a chunky smoked turkey, avocado and tomato sandwich rather than the delicate fatty ooze of a sausage. Who needs scrambled eggs with cream and cheese and yet more cream? At Eat Right, they are cooked naked and served with spinach on rye bread. For dessert, look no further than fresh fruit salad topped with yogurt. Breakfast is served daily from 7am.

Ambience Black walls, high ceilings and chilled-out music. Plenty of newspapers and magazines and an incongruous Carlsberg tap in the middle of the bar. Many of the clientele are dressed in tight tracksuit pants and sport rosy cheeks and wet hair, and the relaxed staff and management ensure that there is no snobbery towards the more slovenly.

Cost Filling breakfast for two HK$268 (and just 1,002 calories).

Who to bring Post work-out gym bunnies and those who have biceps.

Turn-ons Filling food your heart will thank you for. The coffee is as good as you will have anywhere in Hong Kong and well priced. The calorie counter gives you something to ponder.

Turn-offs The calorie counter. The realisation that a reduction in the fat and salt used to prepare eggs also means a reduction in the taste.

Drinks Coffee, protein shakes, fresh juices.
