Australian cafe heads offshore

Caféine from Australia has opened its first overseas cafe in Hong Kong.

Caféine, located on Queens Rd Central, offers “genuine Australian coffees” and a variety of cuisines and dishes.

Owners Dean Hintz and wife Jane Sexton said the decision to set up in Hong Kong was not just a new business opportunity but an exciting new stage of their life, in a booming international city.

“Moving to a city overseas to establish a new business obviously has its risks. But there is a sense of security with Hong Kong due to its rule of law, progressive infrastructure, established business communities and networks and a real sense of positivity about making things happen,” said Dean Hintz.


“From a personal perspective, the dynamic atmosphere of Hong Kong and round-the-clock availability of great food mean that it’s possible to operate a café during the day and enjoy going out for a meal afterwards.”

Since first opening in Brisbane in 2004, Caféine has been a well-known hub for people living and working in the vicinity seeking coffees and casual dining foods.
