If you’re looking for a place to soak up more autumn vibes in Beijing but also don’t want to stand outside in the cold, Day Off Dreamers is the perfect place to go.
Located in the eastern part of Beijing, this café is usually summer themed with sand and surfboards, but is redecorated during October and November with fun autumn leaves, hay bales, and pumpkin decorations. It is a bit of a trek from the city center of Beijing, but worth it for the fun experience.
They also have a specialty drink and cake menu featuring persimmons, chestnuts, and pumpkins. Persimmons are quite popular during autumn time in China, even more so than pumpkin flavored items.
I got an iced Chestnut Latte and a small pumpkin cheesecake for 116 RMB ($16.50). It’s very pricy compared to a usual coffee/cake price, but hey, it’s for the full fall experience right?
