Mifan or Mafan: Seesaw Coffee (Sanlitun)

Walking into Seesaw’s newest location across from Tienstiens, we almost assumed we were on a cooking show set or just a bizarrely pristine kitchen. The decorations and massive windows lend to brightening the space and making it feel bigger than it actually is. Sitting on stools that spin, we try some drip coffee (RMB42) and homemade cookies (RMB18). Snacks are limited to cakes and cookies, but the caffeinated drink options would delight any coffee fan. The intimate space is great for autumn, with outside seating that would be ideal for people-watching, however winter may leave the interior cramped as seating is sparse.
