It was hard to find this cafe since it was located on the 6th floor in a large building. Cute cafe and it was nice to watch Friends on TV.

We heard about this cafe online and thought it might be fun to check out. First off...it’s really hard to find. There are several buildings in this half empty shopping centre. The buildings letter is on the side of each building so first locate the...More

Once you do its worth it.. This place has been designed nice and also tries to recreate Joey's apartment in the next room. The prices are the same as most cafe shops in Beijing.. around 35RMB for a drink / cake. I would avoid the...More
