Need a little pick-me-up during your workday? C-Store (or the ‘tomato store’ as we prefer) serves up a decent cup of illy coffee for only RMB8. Chump change. Time it right and you can get your cup for half-off (usually Friday before 8am or after 5pm, but times tend to vary from store to store). They also serve cappuccinos and lattes for RMB12. Even with the hotter weather, there is no need to quit your caffeine addiction – you can order iced as well. And if C-store doesn’t do the trick, there’s always 7-11 which seem to be sprouting up like wildfires.
