Kisses cupcakes and Sift have been satisfying sweet tooths, sudden red velvet cravings and emergency dinner-dessert gifts for several years in Wanchai. Sift serves the western end of Queens Roads East (aka Admiralty East) while Kisses served the eastern side of Queens Road East at Hopewell Center.
The Kisses cupcakes shop was formerly on a cute corner of QRE building, super convenient for office workers and anyone heading to and from the mtr towards Hopewell and Kennedy Road. It has been replaced with a Beard Papa. (Smells good but it’s just not the same class is it?)
They were obliged to move once Tesla took over rental of the ground floor and presumably changed the profile of tenants in the building. The space they moved to was half way down Queens Road East towards Sift. I’ve found this new location to be neither here nor there, it’s convenient if you’re looking for it but not convenient for an impulse purchase. You wouldn’t be getting much pedestrian traffic except for the lunch crowd and goods delivery or courier guys outside of those hours.
It’s therefore no surprise that Kisses has decided to remove this location and situate the cupcake showroom to Admiralty where there’s more footfall. All the more business for Sift in Wan Chai.
Queens Road East is seeing more and more empty lots up for rent these days..
