“An injustice for calling that a "tuna salad"”

Man Coffee (GongTi)

Restaurant details
Reviewed 7 June 2015

I was probably one of Maan Coffee's first customers in its early days when it arrived in Beijing. It has always had a niche for finding good locations where people congregated and for offering reasonable environment for socializing.

Over the last few months, I have noticed that food quality (or quantity) has gone down. One example is the tuna salad. It once included two scoops of tuna, but now offers only one scoop of tuna at the same price. That's pitiful and Maan Coffee should not be allowed to call that a "tuna salad."

In another example, coffee is now offered with two breadsticks. That's all. It used to be that, diners who asked for a second helping, would be served with a smile. Now, the response is: "Breadsticks are not unlimited. You only get two breadsticks with your coffee." Implying that I was going to fill my stomach on breadsticks is an insult after I had ordered the ice cream waffles and the bulgogi sandwich. A better response, one that someone who had better training and customer service, would have been: "Oh, I'm sorry. Breadsticks are limited to two per cup of coffee."

The good: probably the best looking of these new Korean coffeeshops which are sprouting out everywhere in Beijing; its decoration looks like it came directly out of a Harry Potter movie; its very spacious, two floors. Nice location, near SanLiTun Village and Soho.

The bad: as in all of its places, it's coffee is disgusting and food cheaply made. Other drinks over sweet, as are their ice-creams. And it's overpriced.

It's big and the deco is different from other coffee chain. Not sure what drew the crowd inside though as the drinks were average and overpriced. Definitely not coming back with the coffee stained teddy bears.

I walked past with my friend. We went inside just to take a look. It was so beautiful and welcoming that we couldn't resist. We got waffles and coffee. The place is so spacious, couches are comfy, music was lovely, the staff were helpful and food was great. They have a nice gimic where you get a teddy bear after you make your order so they know to find you when you are seated.
A great place to chill. I could sit there for hours.
28-38 yuan for a waffle. 29-35 yuan for a coffee.
