Jin Feng Cheng Xiang is a well-known bakery chain in Beijing, with several branches in the capital city. They make all kinds of delicious snacks and cakes at reasonable prices. Since I went to a location near schools, I saw mainly students and teachers there.
According to a shop assistant, all snacks, breads and cakes are made fresh on the same day. In the winter time, you may find it a good idea to warm up the food in the microwave there. If you have some time, feel free to watch the bakers do their work.
Prices range from RMB 5 to RMB 15 for each piece. Compared to other bakeries, price here is toward the low end. I personally prefer a light cheese cake (RMB 5). It is made in French style, and heavy on the cheese taste.
In addition, you can get flavored bread here for RMB 2 to RMB 10. And for parties, whole cakes in various styles cost RMB 100 to RMB 500
The shop assistants could not speak much English. But simply point for the item you want to buy, and she'll grab it for you.
