Shanghai Restaurant

Shanghai Restaurant
“Tianzifang is a tourist shopping and cafe area in Shanghai in the Old French Quarter. Unlike the better known Xintiandi area nearby, the area retains an “organic and original” feel because the area hasn’t been markedly reconstructed in recent years. Instead you’ll see buildings, alleys and streets of the old French Quarter with later Chinese additions piled on.”

Bakeries

Bakery
“The best French bakery in Shanghai. Really good bread, patisseries and coffee. Expect lines on the weekend, so I recommend going during the week. This location is the first Farine and on the iconic Wukang Lu. (Take metro Line 10 to Shanghai Library to get there). It's a beautiful very 'on trend' street with Chinese youths at the moment. Plane trees, narrow street, lots of selfie-taking.... It's a really lovely spot. There is also a new VERY popular icecream shop on the street called WIYF. If you want to see what happens when a trend hits in China. Expect to line up for your icecream! ***There is also a Farine located within in Bund area. Address: 88 Yuanmingyuan Rd, nr Beijng Rd.**”
