Cafe in Sanlitun & Chaoyang

Great spot for lunch, especially in summer, located slap-bang in the middle of Sānlǐtún’s bar street and opposite Běijīng’s trendiest shopping area. As the name suggests, there’s a Spanish/Mediterranean theme to the food, with Iberian ham and cheeses and decent salads, as well as great chips, but most punters go for the fine baguettes.

The coffee, juices and smoothies go down a treat, too, and the large, tree-shaded terrace is very popular when the sun is out.
