Stopped in while shopping in the area. The coffee was amazing and the cups are all handmade! Try a green tea dessert. We had lunch while we were there and the food was pretty good. However, I highly recommend the coffee!

There's a welcoming quaintness to this cafe that I really love. To get to the upstairs window box you head up a stairway / ladder that's difficult to describe - good fun but probably nerve-racking if you have a dodgy hip. The service was very...More

Favorite restaurant/cafe in the entire world. Delicious, humble, and simple Japanese food. Don't miss the green-tea udon noodles, kelp salad, ochazuke with salmon, matcha cake, and of course the coffee (I suggest the Yemeni varieties).

The food was not bad but I felt it was a tad pricey. The service was slow at first (to bring us the menu) but afterwards, the waiter was nice to stand beside our table the whole time. Some may find it disconcerting but we...More

Our local friends brought us to this quaint little cafe in Tianzifang recently. What a delightful little eatery! The menu is rather extensive for a "cafe". Cozy atmosphere, good quality food and the best hot chocolate ever! Delicious Japanese-style linguini with clams with pasta done...More

Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly
governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French
Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that
is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While
it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will
sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their
mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area
seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet,
