Great Leap Brewing Taproom

One of Beijing's favorite craft breweries, the Great Leap Brewing Taproom, is also a pretty solid option for brunch on weekends. Choices are overwhelming: think waffles from the brunch menu, or their regular fare (burgers, sandwiches, and salads). Once you're here it is also the perfect time to try one of their craft beers. That is what they are known for, go on, it would be rude not to!

Mao Mao Chong


Maomao Chong

Mao Mao Chong is a popular bar and restaurant located near the Drum and Bell towers. Brunch here is a great idea as they make special brunch pizzas, sausage rolls, and have a long list of the-morning-after cocktails. Most popular is Mao Mao Chong's version of the Bloody Mary: the Bloody Mao. It is similar to the Bloody Mary but has a Chinese twist: it is a little bit spicy.


  • Address: 12 Banchang Hutong, Dongcheng District
  • Price: around 100 yuan per person
  • Brunch time: 12pm–3pm, Wednesday to Sunday.

Temple Restaurant and Bar

Salmon, Temple Restaurant, Beijing

And another step up, Temple Restaurant and Bar is a one-of-a-kind venue located near Beijing's National Art Museum. It's setting is exquisite: it is located inside an old Tibetan temple. Weekend brunch here is not cheap, but definitely one of the best ones around. Especially great if you have something to special celebrate (being on holiday, for example)!

  • Address: 23 Shatan Beijie, Dongcheng District
  • Price: 350 yuan per person for the weekend brunch deal
  • Brunch time: 10.30am–3pm, Saturday and Sunday.

Vineyard Cafe

A great traditional English breakfast, and a range of other items too. This was one of the first good mid-range Western restaurants in the city, and is still popular with foreigners, whether they are just passing by or living in the city. Brunch at Vineyard Cafe is perfectly combined with a full day, or half day, walking tour of the hutongs!

  • Price: around 100 yuan per person
  • Opening times: 11.30am–11.30pm, Tuesday to Sunday.
