Beijing isn't a morning person's city. It is, in fact, the perfect place for a night owl. However, Beijing does offer a few late breakfast and brunch options for those motivated enough to get out of bed before noon.
Steak and Eggs is an American staple in Beijing, offering delicious breakfast foods at all hours, as well as an extensive day-time menu. The setting is American diner and the reception is always warm. Come hungry, leave stuffed.
Grandma's Kitchen, like Steak and Eggs, is the perfect morning meal location. You'll find something you adore at Grandma's that will take off the edge for having to wake up early.
Blue Frog is a delicious morning destination. The Mexican breakfast burritos are something we've all dreamed about at some point, while the eggs Benedict are done to perfection.
Union Bar and Grill offers a delicious brunch menu that won't disappoint. On the pricey side, the food is worth it and the American-style lunch options are worth waiting a few hours extra for.
For a morning coffee, Stone Boat Cafe and Sculpting in Time offer great options on opposite sides of the city for that much needed caffeine. If your up with the sun, these places are sure things for a bit of morning fuel.
Meanwhile, Tube Station Sandwich, Frank's Place and Tube Station Pizza offer delicious lunch/brunch options for those who've awakened a bit later in the morning.
