Yellow vs blue: Hong Kong's restaurants take sides

Hong Kong people joined a long queue outside a local breakfast cafe on Saturday morning outside Lang Mun cafe, labeled by protesters as 'yellow ribbon' as they support the anti-government protesters.

Yellow vs blue: Hong Kong's restaurants take sides

A long queue for breakfast outside Hong Kong's Lang Mun cafe on Saturday (October 26) - a restaurant labeled as ''yellow ribbon'' - in a show of allegiance to anti-government protesters.

Some customers waiting for a table - like this student, Sophia - say they want to support the eatery after it was recently vandalized by the so-called ''blue-ribbon" pro-Beijing group.

Blue or yellow-leaning businesses are now even marked out on a map, making it easier for diners to find somewhere to eat that's aligned with their political views.

Kate Lee owns a ''blue- ribbon'' cafe.

(SOUNDBITE) (Cantonese) OWNER OF NGAN LOONG CAFE, KATE LEE, SAYING: "It affects me directly.

When they clearly differentiate the stores between yellow and blue, I think the yellow ribbon people won't like me.

The blue-ribbon people would rush to support me.

There are good impacts and also bad ones.

It affects the mood of Hong Kong people.

And actually, the situation outside is very tense during the weekends, the people don't dare to go out and eat in the shops, it's affecting the business.

But a group of people who support me would rush to the store.

So I would say there are good and also bad impacts." Hong Kong is now in its fifth month of protests, which have plunged it into its biggest political crisis in decades and taken a heavy toll on the economy.

On Saturday (October 26), medical workers rallied against police brutality in the heart of the city's financial center.
