Staff was friendly and it was easy to converse in English with them. However , the wifi was only limited to China mobile phones. Great to eat and not worry about whether they accept foreign credit cards as a lot of the Guangzhou restaurants and shops only accepted union pay or cash which was a nuisance.

Nicely decorated to suit the environment rendering a feeling of going into the past. Such a relaxation after walking around for two hours.

Nice decor of typical Starbucks style, central location on Shamian island. Clean bathroom, with "pedestal" toilet (not squatting).

We came in at 7:15 AM and they wanted us to wait until they officially opened at 7:30. They could have served us coffee, We went around the corner to McDonald's (nicest one I had ever been to) and they were super nice and helpful.

As the title says, its just another Starbucks. The location is amazing and the building too but i would recommend to try more local things since it does not actually differ from the European standard Starbucks.

Here is my favorite spot to do it in Guangzhou. Several times I have spent a Saturday night on the Island, and then made my morning coffee trip with a... More
