iEat Bookworm Café

A Lamma legend

Veggie fare

The epitome of Lamma’s laidback hippie vibe, the Bookworm Cafe was one of the first in Hong Kong to serve organic vegetarian cuisine, started by eco warrior Bobsy Gaia, who came to Lamma from war-torn Beirut in 1992. Bobsy later went on to start the popular slow food chain Mana! and was also instrumental in creating the Lamma Forest, now home to more than 30,000 trees. Bookworm continues to be a relaxed café with an all-day menu that delivers on a healthy promise, including the popular Lebanese inspired mezze dishes.

We are very lucky on Lamma. It is incredibly safe and for a long time, the rents were low.
