Droplet 45-46 Cochrane Street Central Tel: 2581 2128 Grub: Western-style diner. Vibe: Droplet is tucked away in an alley beneath the escalator on Cochrane Street. It has a slightly run-down feel but is friendly and relaxing. It stays open through the night to 6am on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Who to take: Hang out with friends on a warm afternoon or stop by for a quick snack on your way to or from school. What's hot: Droplet serves everything from breakfast to dinner all day long. Only the set menus are time-restricted. All-day breakfast options include: eggs, bacon. sausage, ham, beans, tomatoes, fries and toast. There is also the Full Monty all-day British breakfast - a twist on the English breakfast which includes English Cumberland sausage, square Scottish sausage and black pudding among its options. Other hot meals include pasta, fish and chips, and burgers. The burgers are excellent value and tender and juicy. Beef, chicken and veggie burgers are available and come with a base of tomato and lettuce. For a nominal fee, you can add generous helpings of bacon, cheese and mushroom. Fries are available with the burger or as a separate item in two sizes. For pasta dishes, you can choose among spaghetti, fusilli and penne, with a variety of sauces. Vegetable and meat choices are on offer, though the menu doesn't specify what kind of meat. Pasta is always good for sharing, and you can order either a regular or large size, depending on how many are in your group. The salads are wonderfully fresh and crisp. The basic green salad includes lettuce, cucumber and tomato. Like everywhere else on the menu, you can add extra items, such as mushrooms, egg, beef and turkey pastrami, salmon and avocado. If you are looking for something quick, there is a range of sandwiches, filled bagels and toasties. The banana and peanut butter toastie is particularly tempting. The dessert section of the menu boasts half a dozen items, and we were keen to try the apple crumble, but sadly only New York cheesecake was available. What's not: Being partially open to the elements, it probably isn't the best place to hang out on cold, wet days, no matter how badly you're jonesing for a toastie. Cost: Sandwiches and bagels start at about HK$20; toasties are from HK$30. Hot dishes start at HK$40. Set breakfasts are from HK$28, lunches from HK$45. Most people will find themselves well fed for less than HK$100.
