Coffee culture has taken over Ningbo in a serious way. Each month we’ll highlight one of the many quirky coffee shops that have sprung up over the last few years.
Restaurants, bars and cafes are popping up in Yinzhou at an alarming rate. And by alarming we mean awesome. There are more new places than can easily be taken in over an evening and a lot of that is good for those of us that like to eat and drink. Like coffee? Great. Do you like your coffee with big couches, clean design, large teddy bears, French desserts, understandable apathy, cats, anime, impressively nerdy knowledge, or bikes?
Because apparently in Yinzhou you can have your pick. The latest on the scene is Notbad, a cycle themed coffeshop that goes for clean and spunky design with a lot of fun ways to use bike parts.
The owner, named Little Fish, is friendly and can actually make some pretty good cheesecake. The coffee is good and they are always baking. When we were hanging out and taking photos, Little Fish and his counterpart opened a Taobao order full of butter. Nice.
The place is quirky and fun and we have some information from Little Fish about future rides that he organizes. They are usually Saturdays and Sundays and are a mix of road and mountain biking. The best way to follow that info is on the Ningbo Guide website and especially our WeChat.
It’s great to have another addition to the quirky coffee shops of Yinzhou. If you’re riding in the neighborhood stop by and say hi.
