Start the morning right by meeting your local foodie insider at an easy-to-find yet off the beaten path location. Then stroll through a residential hutong neighborhood, passing temples and markets along the way, while stopping to enjoy authentic breakfast dishes and drinks where locals eat. There are no tourists here, just family-run eateries and street stalls where everything is made to order like it has for generations. While visiting 4-5 sit-down eateries and markets, you will get to try over 10 breakfast dishes and drinks that Beijing locals love. You'll learn how each dish is made as they are prepared fresh for us to enjoy. Give Beijing's famous yogurt a try, watch savory pancakes prepared in a way you haven't seen before, visit a local market to see what's in season, and feast on a classic Beijing breakfast spread...plus a lot more! The experience will finish at a local cafe where you sip on some of Beijing's best coffee, complete with a view of the hutong neighborhood.

Most of the places that we visit on the tour are small family-run eateries that are open for a long time and frequented by locals. We visit the same eateries every morning on the tour so we know that the food is safe and consistent in quality.
