Sponsored by the Teresa Tang Foundation and the Social Welfare Department’s Partnership Fund for the Disadvantaged, the Coffee Shop started its business in 2009 as the first Teresa -themed coffee shop in Hong Kong. It serves dual purposes: to provide employment and on-the-job training for the ex-mentally ill persons and to serve as a place where the public and Teresa’s fans can come together to pay tribute to Teresa Tang and at the same time have a nice cup of coffee, pastry or snacks.

Comments on accessible facilities:
Wheelchair users may take the lift at Exit J of MTR Tsim Sha Tsui/East Tsim Sha Tsui Station to the ground floor, then move along Salisbury Road in the direction of Hung Hom. It takes only about one minute to get to the Teresa New Life Coffee Shop. The coffee shop provides ramped access and movable chairs but no disabled washroom, but there is one in the Middle Road Children’s Playground. This means you have to return to Exit J of the MTR Tsim Sha Tsui/East Tsim Sha Tsui Station and take the lift to go there.
The Middle Road Children’s Playground is accessible by using the lift.
