The Vineyard Café
Set in the new ultra-hip Wudaoying hútong across from the Lama Temple, The Vineyard Café is a local favorite for its comfort food and relaxed atmosphere. Try to grab a table in the coveted converted courtyard with skylights that fill the restaurant with sun. The Chili con Carne or the Bangers and Mash are bound to fill your belly to the brim and the Veggie Burgers are the delight of the capital’s herbivores. There are under RMB 50 weekday lunch deals including Quiche Lorraine and Baked Potatoes that attract a regular following. There are also sandwich favorites such as coronation chicken and hummus with red pepper. On the weekends, Brits and Aussies seeking a hangover cure come here for the massive fry-up, also known as a Full English breakfast. For those of you with a sweet tooth, there are chocolate brownies and apple pie like your grandmother used to make.
