FLTRP Bookstore - Danglv Café
A 700-meter walk east from the west campus of Beijing Foreign Studies University leads to the Danglv Café on the edge of the university’s gymnasium. This café was opened by a group of graduates of this university and its employees are mostly part-time students.
Although as a semi-underground shop, it is well-lit and features white-based overall design, making it more bright and spacious. It is known that the last-year renovation added the café more seats, which provides greater convenience to coffee drinkers and book lovers. Instead of the atmosphere in libraries, many people find that they are more easily engrossed in books in a relaxed environment such as in a coffee house. As a result, coffee + books have become a symbol for guests in Danglv Café. Although not so many desserts are offered here, each one boasts fine looking and dainty taste. Such as the strongly recommend orange mousse, which features bright color, salivating smell and soft taste with superior sweet orange sauce.
Address: north to the Gymnasium of Beijing Foreign Studies University, No. 2, West 3rd Ring North Road
