User reviews of Maan Coffee 漫咖啡
I do love the environment of this coffee spot, spend a lot of time with it. On the whole, those in Chaoyang and Dongcheng districts are decent. The Haidian ones used to be acceptable, but recently the service suffered a great drop and I couldn't figure out the reason. By Haidian ones I mean the one in Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications especially. The only reason I can think about is that being in side a college let the waiters ignore something you know.
I do love the whole space and vibe of Maan Coffee... it feels really relaxed, yet upscale, and the coffee is affordable. I even like the cheeky teddy bear method of delivering drinks. My only problem with the place -- really the only problem -- is that the internet is absolutely terrible!!! They have a couple different networks going but none of them seem to really work. I always end up switching back and forth to different ones with no resolution. Yesterday, after my boyfriend and I spent our entire visit cursing the connection (it wasn't just slow, I simply couldn't connect for more than thirty seconds), we ended up leaving. Sometimes you go to a coffee shop to relax with friends, but other times you really just want to get work done. Unfortunately I don't think I'll be going back to Maan any time soon for that.
Went here on a really cold day this winter. It was nice and warm inside until workmen decided to work on the front door. We moved once to get out of the cold, and then after our meals were delivered were told to move again because of the workmen (although we weren't really in their way). Guess it's not that they repair the front door every day but on a Saturday morning I thought it was a bit weird.
Food was pretty good, though they only give you the tiniest portion of maple syrup to have on your waffles (um.. am I supposed to eat them dry?) When I asked for more the first waitress told me to wait then disappeared for 20 minutes (with no intention of getting me any - I think she had a problem with me getting it for free). So 20 minutes later I asked someone else who said 'Sure' and gave me a second portion. The first waitress saw that happen and looked both unimpressed and embarrassed at the same time.
Still, I enjoyed the place, it's worth a visit if you love waffles. Place was clean and with a nice atmosphere.
I've been waiting for this place to open now for a couple of weeks and since it did I have been twice. Food is great, Bulgogi burger and the waffles are my favorites. Food is also quite cheap for being Sanlitun.
Drinks are nice but same price as any other places. Lemonades are tasty, smoothies taste more home made than store bought which is a plus.
Since it just opened the service personnel is kinda sucky but I really hope they get better soon.
The space is awesome. Cool interior and a great upper floor with both outdoor seating and semi-outdoor seating.
Will be my main destination many sundays to come.
If service was better it would be a 5/5.
