There is only one thing worse than being served a terrible meal or drink: hearing that the table you booked, is given away and that the management not even ask you if you like to wait while they will do their best to find a solution.
It is too sad to notice that the quality of what it was once a great location has dropped down to the bottom.
The unexperienced and unmotivated management have no idea just how awful the things they are doing to you are. And so, to the That’s Magazine award winning Bar & Bistro in Shenzhen, or the scene of the crime as I now like to call it. In terms of value for money and expectation Brew Bar & Bistro supplied by far the worst experience I have endured in my 25 years as entrepreneur. This, it must be said, is an achievement of sorts.

Well, Blend has arrived on Chegongmiao in Shenzhen (China), as my friend and coffee enthusiast told me he would give it two stars straight out of 3, I decided to pay it a visit too.
Besides coffee Blend also has Western breakfasts, lunch and snacks. The owners used to live in Australia and brought their experiences & ideas to Shenzhen.
The Western breakfasts, eggs with sausages, bean and tomato, are prepared with a little twist and served by friendly staff with a sincere smile, which make the start of your day more pleasant. The location at Chegongmiao has 2 different kind of coffee beans customers can choose from. One of them is the “House Blend”, which is personally my favourite.
The location is smart, with large and widely windows, the seats are provided with AC connections so you can also charge your devices, the surrounding meaning pleasingly low noise levels.
Service was silky smooth and the staff charming & friendly.
To be fair, the coffee & food pricing is not e
Love, love the new stuff. Was there when the Beijing Duck tacos were on as the "taco of the week". Excited to see what else is coming! Service has been an issue in the past but everyone was friendly and attentive, even on a busy night. Great place, glad it's in Futian, can't recommend the food highly enough after years in the (Mexican food) wilderness!
