The OG of the new-wave coffee scene in Beijing, this tiny hutong spot channels the chic café vibe to a T. As generic as that may be, Barista pulls off the exposed brick wall and industrial lighting look with a friendly vibe, avoiding any of the pretentiousness that often comes with Serious CoffeeTM. The drinks here aren’t the cheapest but they’re very good and come with a Lotus biscuit on the side. Try the soda iced americano (30RMB) for something different.
Good for Working. Not enough space here for a group, but good Wi-Fi and a lowkey atmosphere make it a good laptop destination.
