sit outside in summer
This delicate and simple bagel cafe offers a few amenities that make it one of the most exciting additions to Chao Yang Park.
Free wi-fi makes this a great place to while away a few hours in the morning while you knock out a few emails or other work. The environment is quiet enough for serious work but fun enough that it isn't a drag to hang out there.
Outdoor seating in summer adds a great deal to this idealistic bagel shop, making it a fun place to catch a few rays in summer without sucking in too much pollution or being overwhelmed by the sounds of honking and traffic. Amazingly, the wi-fi is strong even outside the venue's doors.
And the bagels and coffee aren't bad, either. You'll find that the variety is limited, but then again, bagels in China are a rare treat so anything that's decent becomes much more wonderful than it is.
