The Village Café
An upscale eatery inside The Opposite House, the Village Café is a favorite of those in-the-know and anyone who has ever had to schedule an early morning business meeting in the area. One of the only places in Sanlitun open before 8am, the café serves one of the best breakfasts in Beijing. The French toast is as good as in any New York diner and the banana and coconut pancakes with palm sugar syrup is a sinful take on a classic breakfast food. Its Juice Bar serves delicious and healthy fruit and vegetable smoothies. Designed by Shanghai trendsetters Neri+Hu, each table is cleverly kitted out with its own power-adaptor so that you can surf the Wifi ad nauseum with multiple cups of coffee. It’s also a great place for a casual dinner – the Wonton soup will soothe your growling belly – before checking out the Sanlitun nightlife.
