Stumbled on this place and glad I did...was sick of noodles and more noodles. A hipster hangout with almost western prices but a great atmosphere and very good coffee.

I just love this place. I saw it as a very small, 4 tables breaky place, which through time transformed into a beatiful hutong bar and restaurant. If you want to feel China, but still eat some fusion food - this place is for you.

Highly recommended. Great Atmosphere. Good coffee but not exactly what I hope for from a latte. Some of the staff offer exceptional service. Food is fast and fresh. Menu selection is varied and interesting. Would visit every time I pass through Beijing.
