“It's a Starbucks, with everything you'd expect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

It's a moderately impressive Starbucks, about as western as any Chinese branch of a western company gets. The staff speak a reasonable standard of English, usually, though my frappuccinos have been a bit 'ice-heavy' a few times. Anyone who frequents this chain knows you can't top an almond latte with whipped cream on a cold wintry day though ;)

“It can compete with any of the Starbucks around the world for the service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

I have to say that these guys were amazing! I visited this cafe on various occasions and after couple of visits they already knew what I am going to order! And this is one of the busiest Starbucks I've seen in China! The view of the Drum Tower and the Bell Tower adds to the experience... just one warning: avoid the beggars and the "English students" who are asking to chat with you - the second ones are usually scammers!
