For most visitors, I suppose, the main point to a stop at a Pacific Coffee Company outlet is the free web-surfing they offer. All the ones I saw had a few lap-top computers - never more than six - available for client use. Officially, you're only allowed 15 minutes' worth of free 'Net time, but in practice, if there's are only a few customers -- which isn't often, actually -- you can surf along to your heart's content. At the very least, you
can check your e-mail.
A note about Hong Kong Internet cafes:
Computer penetration in Hong Kong is very, very high, probably the highest in Asia. The result is that the Internet cafe culture hasn't really caught on here. In Singapore or Thailand you can't walk five minutes in any direction
without finding a public connection. In Hong Kong, that's rather more difficult. That said, the public connections we did find were mostly free, whereas you have to pay elsewhere in the region.
