Emma’s Kitchen information
Lonely Planet review
Sōngpān’s main travellers’ hang-out is this laid-back cafe that serves fresh coffee, pizza and other Western fare, along with a number of Chinese dishes. Emma is exceedingly helpful and can sort out almost anything from laundry or train tickets to packed lunches for your horse trek. Also has internet (per hour ¥6) and CD burning (per disk ¥15). At the time of research, Emma had plans to convert the back of the cafe into a few guestrooms. Email her for the latest.
A couple of doors along, Song in the Mountain Restaurant , run by the helpful Sarah Yang, has a similar menu (minus the fresh coffee) with slightly cheaper prices.
