The newly opened Fan Deng Book Cafe combines two popular functions: an independent book store and full service cafe. The books are mostly printed in Mandarin, but even if you don’t know the language, it can still be fun to browse the shelves. The food, however, is appealing to just about everyone. Waffles and sandwiches are the two primary menu categories, both of which include the option to build your own custom creation (try topping your waffle with fresh blueberries, almond chips, and Nutella). Just add an espresso or a latte to round out your meal (you can even turn your coffee into dessert by adding a scoop of ice cream and chocolate to your drink).
This Gaithersburg store also plays host to a number of speakers and special events, including meetups for women entrepreneurs, workshops on nonviolent communication, computer coding classes, and more. Check the online calendar for a schedule of current events!
