Jinmaixiang bakery, situated near Andingmen subway station, is easy to spot from the street. Inside, you will find all kinds of snack food made fresh everyday at low prices. This includes flavored breads, cakes, egg tarts, to name but a few. As one of bakeries near the Earth Altar, Jinmaixiang has quite a few repeat customers who cannot resist its great taste.
When I visited the shop hospitable shop assistant greeted me, and picked out the items I wanted. The bread here are very good, and come in various tastes: Bacon, Cheese, Blueberry, and meat. Prices range from RMB 1.5 to RMB 4.5 each.
A large portion of the store features their cakes, which cost RMB 60 to RMB 100 each. If you just want a slice, they are located near the counter, priced from RMB 6 to RMB 10. According to the shop assistant, the prices here are lower than other bakeries. And I am inclined to agree.
If you're not in a hurry, go up to the second floor's cafe, where you may sit and chat. Buying cup of coffee will cost you RMB 15 to RMB 30.
Although the shop assistants could not speak English, the menu and tags are written in English for foreigners. After 6 p.m., all items get a 20% discount.
