“A respite from the cold”

Great interior to this bar, with all kinds of US memorabilia, among others, and some good, while unassuming, food. [E.g., great sandwiches!] Good beer, too, and reasonable prices. Desultory service, unfortunately. Just opposite the (helpful) Tourist Office, near the top of the mall, and a short walk from the river.

This is really a true tourist spot - but it does serve a good seletion of coffees, including a great version of an Irish Coffee, which come as a welcome relief on a freezing cold day.

The food menu is very limited but the fries were good.

Prices we found the same as most places we visited - we live in Changchun and found that Harbin overall was a little bit more pricey than we are used to.

There are not many western bars in Zhongyang Lu, this is the more obviouse one. At first glance it looks good. The toilets were disgusting, the drinks expensive (30rmb for a thimble sized glass of bailey's). But at least it was warm in there.

USA Bucks is an "American decor" tourist restaurant located toward the north end of Zhongyang Dajie - the pedestrian street in Harbin. The place is decorated with American highway souvenirs and other knick knacks and has a warm atmosphere.

The coffee is very good and served quickly - important after spending time outside in the winter here. The food (mostly Russian style) is average, but the service is very slow. Your order also comes our randomly.

My french fries arrived after I had finished my beef stew and 2 cups of coffee and after I asked for the check - about 50 minutes after I placed my order. The group of six Russians sitting next to me had their meals come out one at a time. Their french fries arrived with mine, even though they were already seated and drinking their coffee when I came in....

You would also think that the waitresses could speak some English in an obviously tourist place. I'm not expecting them to be able to discuss middle East geopolitics, but they should understand the word "menu".

It's really not a bad place to hang out, but don't come here if you are in a hurry.

Free Wi-Fi is available.
