Was in Shanghai for 13 days, I went back 4 times. Just love their bread, baguette and tartes, everything remind me of France. Perfect for late breakfast or lunch. It’s maybe a bit pricy, if you compare to chinees food, but its worth every yuan.

Yong Kong road is really a nice dessert and pub road, Pain Chaud is about at the mid of that road, cosy environment with dessert at great price, I enjoyed the cheese cake there and great flat white coffee I highly recommend

A perfect place for a coffee and a cake or a sandwich. The bread is scrumptious and they have a nice variety. Great place for morning coffee or lunch and not far from the metro at IAPM / South Shaanxi Road

A great place for a coffee and a pastry. The sandwiches are really good, especially the smoked salmon baguette. However, it's a bit on the pricey side, Bread Etc. is cheaper and has the same quality.

I can see how I would have gone crazy for Pain Chaud when I lived in Shanghai as an expat 10 years ago, but it's not something I'd seek out as a visitor. The pastries were good, but they all seemed a little off, either...More

This place is lovely, best hot chocolate I have ever tasted. A nice environment to sit and work with your laptop and people watch. Also a great place to come for breakfast with friends!

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,
