Walk passed this cafe a few times before deciding to pop in and have a look. To my surprise, the deco inside is very detailed and gave me a very nice homely feel. Again, I’ll let the pics do the talking. 🙂
Taste: Latte was prepared a different way but good thing it was served hot. Didn’t try the mains or cakes ‘cos in Xiamen, you’re full all the time!
Service: 5/5. Very hospitable and they make you feel at home. The lady boss would be there usually at night.
Ambience: 4.5/5. A lot of efforts done to do up this place. However the front part of the cafe is a little warm during summer.
Price: If I’m not wrong, it’s RMB$16. Very affordable as compared to the branded ones.
RTE: If I’m staying around that area again I would.
Location: 思明区鹭江道274-5号(开禾路口). Just behind the hotel I stayed http://wp.me/p2BhOI-4d. Tel: 0592-2224690
As I continue to walk after my food tasting at 林氏鱼丸, I was actually searching for this place. If you have taken a wrong turn, you may never find this nice little secret garden. But if you speak Mandarin, just ask the locals. This place is well known in Gulangyu or even Xiamen for their coffees and if I’m not wrong, their barista came in runners-up in some barista competition. I was lucky to have found this place, which looked like someone else’s garden from the main door, and trotted in to find a lovely paradise hiding in the small island of Gulangyu.
Taste: Awesome for a nice tea session! My only regret is not trying their popular food like Beef Rice, Baked Escagots, etc. But the desserts will do really fine!
Service: Really good. Service staff would be so obliging to explain to you the make of the food on the menu.
Ambience: Nice and serene. Was there during autumn, still warm so didn’t sit outside in the garden. Inside’s aircon is chillax!
Price: See last photo.
Location & Contacts: See last photo. 🙂
