Mrs Shanen’s Bagels
One of Shunyi’s beloved gems. This is the place to satisfy your bagel craving. There are classics, like plain or blueberry, as well as innovative flavors – be adventurous and try their jalapeno cheddar. Check their daily selections for sandwich options such as smoked salmon or egg salad, available on your bagel of choice.
If you crave the goodness of homemade bread, then try out Panino Teca, voted “Outstanding Sandwiches” in theBeijinger’s 2009 Restaurant Awards. Panini and bruschetta are the popular items in this Italian sandwich café, but salads and cakes don’t fall far behind. The setting is airy and sunlit – a pleasant place to bring the kids. Dawn Lo
