Situated near the Confucius Temple in Dongcheng is a little Buddhist inspired coffee shop. Its mention in many China inspired guidebooks made me fairly curious as to how a little roadside café nestled in the heart of a hutong could be named after one of the most famous temples in all of Beijing which led me to wander inside. What a cute little vintage-like café!
Café Confucius is one of those little six seater places, perfect for someone looking for a quiet spot to warm up and do some reading.
If you’re a cat lover, that’s a bonus because these little furry creatures can be found wandering around inside, either basking near the windows and taking in some sun or laying on the comfy chairs next to you.
Their menu consists of a vast selection of teas and specialty coffees that make you super feel relaxed in this cute little vintage café.
