Although located on a quiet residential block, this vintage cafe attracts customers due to a combination of savory food and unique decor. And the cute cats strutting about have also proven popular with many guests.
A group of friends own the cafe and they want customers to feel at home, which is why they handle most of the serving duties.
Sunhouse has the feel of being in western China as coarse red bricks and old knickknacks abound. A poster of the “Black Cat Detective,” a cartoon broadcast in the early 1980s, hangs in one corner.
On the second floor, a big shelf provides diners with a wide range of magazines and books, which they are free to peruse.
The bar offers both Western and Chinese food including spaghetti, steaks and sirloin stewed with rice. A meal will usually cost about 50 yuan (US$8) a person.
Live performances are held from time to time. Sunhouse also has a small flea market where customers can exchange items with each other.
