"What goes best with a cup of coffee? Another cup!"
If you're a coffee lover, you've got to visit the Guicheng Coffee Street in Guangdong's Foshan city. The street in fact is an old neighborhood surrounded by several streets and located near the Guicheng metro station. In the past two years, this old neighborhood has attracted a dozen coffee shops of different styles, which has made the community energetic again.
The popular chain coffee shop, GOTLOT, tends to integrate community culture into coffee. When it comes to a new community, it will make creative coffee melt with the local cultural elements. The "white cut chicken" is a must-try in this shop. Many people are attracted by its strange name at first, and then are conquered by the rich ginger flavor, just like the dipping sauce of the white cut chicken dish.
Towser Coffee & Cocktail is different from others. In the daytime, it's a café; at night, it’s transformed into a small bar. The elegantenvironment makes it a nice place for friends or couples to have a great time. And there is a very cute kitty!
Cima Caffè is a very low-key fine coffee shop. Its location is not relatively eye-catching, as if to tell people good coffee needs no bush. The types of coffee here are very simple, only Americano, Latte, Dirty, and Espresso, because the shop's owner keeps pursuing the best of each type of coffee. The shop's name Cima is an Italian word, which means mountain top. The owner expects people having coffee here can be as comfortable as being on a mountain top.
