Chengdu > Leanna's Bakery
My experience was a little different - really fast service.
But we ordered soup and salad, so that's pretty easy.
The broccoli potato cheese soup was amazing, and when I looked at the menu thought it was a little pricey (19 yuan I think?), the bowl was HUGE and so was the salad which was also around the same price.
Aside from the Indian restaurants, they're the only place I've found that sells chai tea, which was also pretty decent.
Best part by far was the baked goods.
Bought a couple of pastries to try, a Boston creme donut with chocolate and something like an apple fritter.
Prices have gone up I think, the donut was 10 but it was so worth it!
Atmosphere just reminds me of a little mom and pop restaurant from back home.
And yes, the screaming kids were still there.
Maybe they live there?

Chengdu > Little Bar (New)
I'm just grateful it exists(expensive beer, crappy sound system DEFINITELY)!
It's going to take some time for some people with money who don't mind investing in something that might be a huge loss just for the love of the music!
Until that day, at least New Little Bar is hosting shows almost every weekend!

Chengdu > Mike's Pizza Kitchen
It was really nice trying something new - the stuffed Red Riding Hood pizza was pretty good!
I'm really picky about sauce, and for once had a pizza that was soaked in sauce (also good the morning of day 2).
Also ordered the spinach salad (yum yum more sun-dried tomatoes) and delivery was really fast - couldn't believe they made all that AND got to my house in 40 minutes.
Thanks Mike, nice new biz.

Chengdu > Bingo Bagel
It's on the backside of the building complex called Lin Jiang Fen Ge (粼江峰阁），off of Shun Jiang Lu (顺江路） Coffee is about 23 kuai (I think 15 for espresso?) but strong and good (Just had a Vietnamese coffee here today... I was flying on the way home).
Bagels are 3-4 kuai with 2 kuai cream cheese and their milk tea is REAL taiwanese milk tea (not the powdered crappy stuff).
No smoking inside and they have a really good espresso machine, and also some bing sha iced drinks, some little cookies and stuff.
Nice owner - Taiwanese guy but lived in L.A. for a long time.

Chengdu > KaffeStugan
The iced coffee saved me (nice liquid brown sugar that they serve on the side)!!
There's a few blends to choose from and the owners are so sweet.
Plus you get a little cookie with each coffee and there's good little sandwiches, teas, coffees, cookie platters, waffles, and more to choose from.
It's a little spendy (maybe 30-40 kuai if you get a coffee plus some little pastry or a sandwich), but it's worth it!
I am a smoker, but it's actually nice that you can't smoke inside (before 8pm!).

Chengdu > Circle Live Pub
I like this venue a lot better than Little Bar, except it is pretty far from my place (Zong Bei/Yulin).
It has a lot wider space rather than the long setup at Little Bar (when you're stuck in the back and can't see anything), so it's easier to get close up to the band.
