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

Stopped in here on a whim while wandering around Tan Zi Feng and were not disappointed. Great frappucino, espresso, chicken sandwich, and carrot cake. Can sit outside and people watch. Free wifi

We had some pretty good food and coffee here. My burger was surprisingly better tasting than I expected. Seating was hard to come by outside, and a little cramped, but still a reasonably quiet place to relax and eat in Shanghai.

Thank jallenh

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.
