We were only intending to stay for a quick bite to eat but the accidental company of two Swedish people turned this into more drinks than food. The area is gorgeous and we were able to sit outside for what was decent food. There are English speaking waiting staff so the process is easy. There is a standard menu of... More

Just had a coffee, was good, served in a glass pot. They have seating outside and it was great sitting in the sun. It's a nice area, small pedestrian streets with shops.

This hidden gem is owned by a Melbournian so the coffee is good. It can be a bit too hot but generally every coffee I've had there is great. The big breakfast is Big! All in all a cool little spot to eat, drink and watch people. Also but the coffee takeaway to get one of their cool coffee glasses!

A nice little cafe in the middle of the French quarter, Kommune Cafe offers breakfast, smoothies and burgers in an innovative and delicious manner. A must do!

In the heart of Tianzifang, Kommune is an easy pick if you are not feeling too brave experimenting with local dishes and other foreigners are a sign of comfort. Kommune boasts of being a winebar serving fairly simple but rather expensive cafe food (sandwiches and tapas etc) No idea about their wines (as I had a beer), but go there... More

Kommune is one of the best places we found in the Tianzifang neighborhood. They have a nice inside bar area with tables where you can eat if the weather is poor. Additionally, they have a nice patio with tables outside. Kommune is a great place to grab a beer in the afternoon or grab some delicious food with quick and... More

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighbourhood Profile
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, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
