It’s the first cafe we enjoyed in Shanghai! Lots of friendly staffs, with very youthful baristas working on your office. It has been the most consistently good coffee chain in Shanghai. Two cappuccino please!

This place has great coffee. Easy space, stylish and the Barista knows coffee. And at last a coffee in a cup not a jug. Coffee is 32 RMB.

This is a very upmarket architecturally rich part of town with a range of shops you would not see elsewhere. Great coffee and people watching opportunities at this cafe.

The key differentiator that this coffee chain has is its specialty coffees. You can try ones from China’s Yunnan province or even other countries like Kenya etc. I found it to be quite good and worth the extra premium you may pay versus more common...mixed brews. The cafe is located in a mall setting making it a bit noisy at peak timesMore

The cafe is more cosy compare to the one in REEL. It is quiet and cosy. Great atmosphere. The barista knew the coffee and able to explain the coffee beans well.

Either on weekdays with briefcase and in suit or weekend with macbook while working on your travel blog. This is an absolute must-go coffee place that offers no BS. Simple selection of Italian-style coffee from Espresso to Latte, but the gems are the pour over...single origin selections offering different notes packed with potent caffeine. Have them with their dessert or cookies, the cookies are to die for! My faves are the skinny chocolate and red velvet, won’t be disappointed. The one in Jing’an has view of the park, perfect in Summer.More

I'm from Australia so I can appreciate a really good flat white! I find it hard to find a good coffee in Shanghai most of the time its too milky/ foamy and I dont get a real coffee taste like how I am used to!...I find See saw Flat white the closest thing to what I can get back at home. The coffee is a bit expensive and while against Aussie coffees it would be meh for Shanghai I think its great! As coffee culture is not really a thing yet but is slowly growing!! Also this location is the cutest and great environment!More

These guys are serious about the coffee they served to their customers. Probably the best coffee we have had in Shanghai.
