Description

Stacked with knicknacks, old books, odd lamps and red couches, this cafe is as quaint as it is cluttered. Though the drink list isn't huge, the tasty snacks and the place's personality more than compensate. Be selective who you invite as this tiny cafe seats groups no more than four.

The interior is full of little antiques slowly falling to pieces. But it's got that old Beijing feel and the coffee's pretty good. Watch out for the loud cat patrolling the place (I think it's the white one in baaao's pic!!)

Small and cozy place. Unfortunately, the most unfriendly staff I have encountered in Beijing until now.

I'm with bokane. Leave us alone. There are many other places for you to go in Beijing. And stop perving on my Mongolian brothers.

What I meant was, this is *my* cafe, and I don't need a lot of City Weekend readers coming and messing it up. So my advice -- not to come -- still applies.

One of the coolest little cafe in beijing and full of charm. A kind of place that you want to keep to yourself. So don't know what bokane is talking about, except yeah don't come ;-) Nice to see a little soul in the cafe scene, and love the beijing interior architecture.

ambiance is not bad. but service is cold, to say the least. and coffee was just so so. don't think i'm going there again. i'll reinforce bokane's advice: rather go anywhere else in nan luogu xiang.

No no no. Do not come here. Please. Go anywhere else on Nan Luogo Xiang, but not here. Seriously.

**Cozy and cluttered** If you're not claustrophobic, this is the place for you. It's got a great artsy, indie vibe and the bartender's not bad to look at either.
