Mifan or Mafan: Elephant Grounds

By That's Beijing, November 7, 2019

0 0

Located in Sanlitun’s Taikoo Li, new cafe Elephant Grounds is pretty hip. With menu items like avocado toast (RMB72), colorful acai bowls (RMB62) and oozy eggs benedict (RMB78), it’s a chic little breakfast spot for when you’re in a hurry, but still have enough time to Instagram your meal. Though, the small but bright space makes for a cozy longer stay too, especially since it’s on the quieter side of the busy Taikoo Li. We choose a dainty macchiato (RMB36), a nice pick-me-up for a late afternoon, but the crunch cake (RMB35), a Beijing special, is special indeed. The tall slice of airy and moist sponge cake, liberally coated with silky cream and chunks of lightly crunchy honeycomb, is not too sweet – and best enjoyed while watching your Insta likes roll in.
