South German Bakery, Café Konstanz, Bodenseestube, Beijing, China

Beijing is becoming more and more international, so does its offer of international food. Leibspeise visited the South German Bakery/Café Konstanz/Bodenseestube in this ever changing city.

South German BakeryFrom the outside, the South German Bakery looks like a timbered house (Fachwerkhaus), downstairs one can find the bakery and café, upstairs is a restaurant which serves excellent breakfast, but also typical hearty southern German food like Spätzle, Maultaschen, Flammkuchen and Wurstsalat. The bakery employs two German baker masters that is why they have a fantastic variety of  auhentic German bread: walnut, rye, caraway, pumpkin, soy, oat, 3 grain bread and many more.

South German BreakfastLeibspeise sampled the South German Breakfast and was delighted. We were treated to delicious pretzels, bread rolls, homemade apricot jam, honey, boiled eggs, ham, and cheese.

The bakery/café/restaurant is only 4 years old, but is gaining popularity at a rapid pace and plans for expansions are already underway. Not only expats love the good quality products, but also Chinese are interested in German food culture and for them German bread is a ‘healthy choice’. The bakery keeps German traditions alive and offers specialties like Christstollen around Christmas and Easterbunnies and eggs at Easter.

South German Bakery insideLeibspeise was amazed by the variety and quality of bakery products on offer. The breakfast was excellent and the menu comforts homesick south Germans (like us).  The restaurant decor is satisfying German stereotypes with heavy wooden furniture and is more a reminiscence of the old days, rather than of modern Germany.  You certainly can’t miss the massive map of the Bodensee  on the restaurant’s wall.

The South German Bakery can be found on Lucky Sreet in Beijing’s Chaoyang District.
