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.”

“Sumerian is a Shanghai institution known for its quality coffee. This casual and welcoming spot on Shaanxi Bei Lu, complete with adorable dogs Burrito and Doudou, has always held a special spot in our hearts. Winner of the best café in our Best of Shanghai Awards 2014, and also securing a spot in our roundup of Shanghai's Best Breakfasts earlier this year, our love for their offerings has not been kept quiet.”
