This is a little gem of a cafe perched on the side of the river near the Confucius temple area if Fuzi Miao district of Nanjing. The menu is mostly local versions of western food,including breakfast. The coffee and desserts we had were good - flourless chocolate cake and fruit pizza. It is best to visit when you can sit... More

I ordered a bottle of penfolds and they showed me the bottle then took it away and then brought back the bottle opened. Upon inspection it was clearly a fake bottle of wine. It took a lot of arguing but they finally replaced it

A great little cafe on the 2nd floor (entrance through a ground floor hairdresser salon) - nice atmosphere, free wifi. Coffee was good but food seriously took 1 hour to be brought out. This left us quite disappointed.

This place has a really great coffee shop/cozy environment--the type that will encourage you to stay a while and chat with friends. That being said, plan on being there a while because it takes FOREVER to get your food. Today I went with a group of 8 friends and my salad (the only thing I ordered) didn't come for an... More

This is a great little western style cafe in the heart of student land. Chilled out and well styled surroundings, good food and a good wine list. Great for kids too. Check out the breakfast (British, American and European). Only gripe is the slow service, but not an issue if you are not in a hurry. My favourite cafe in... More
