Joining forces with a flower shop, Cabo Coffee is an unusual new addition among the brightly lit (and highly questionable) bars along Sanlitun’s bar street. With limited seating and a calming fragrance of flowers, the artisan coffee shop is sweet and snug. We try the grapefruit long black (RMB40) and the dirty (RMB30), both quite delightful and well made. The dirty, which we’re assured is a staple of Beijing’s finest coffee houses, combines hot espresso with cold milk – overall ideal for anyone who needs a quick shot of caffeine. Also on offer are teas and baked goods, like the handmade chocolate (RMB30) and carrot cake (RMB35), both equally delicious.
