4.1

Bright, sunny café with great pizzas and hearty English breakfasts.

Run by an Englishman named Will, this buzzy hutong restaurant is just the place for a long, lazy brunch after a morning exploring the Lama Temple nearby. I’m a regular for their Monday-Friday lunch special where you can tuck into oven-baked pizza, salad and a drink for a relative bargain.

Food and drink

Comfort food to suit the homesick British palate, like wood-fired pizzas, salads, homemade quiche Lorraine, jacket spuds with baked beans and cheese and giant English breakfasts starring real English sausages, fried tomatoes, strong tea and fresh juice. A good wine list, too.

Ambience

Trendy and relaxed, Vineyard’s rustic wooden tables and comfy armchairs are a home-from-home for urbane Beijing expats and their baby strollers. On weekends it gets very busy - book ahead.

Service

Friendly and efficient, but I’ve been left waiting occasionally during busy periods.

Location

Halfway along Wudaoying Hutong, a rapidly gentrifying alleyway between the Lama Temple and Confucius Temple.

Price advice

The Monday-Friday lunch menu is a super deal at RMB 50-60 for main course, salad and drink.
