Dimattina Coffee

Nice place with amazing view. Perfect location inside the park making this cafe special. You can just sit upstairs enjoy your time with a cup of coffee. One of the best coffee in shanghai for now.

LTL Mandarin School (Shanghai)

I just finished my 6th week of classes at LTL and my experience has been amazing. I have made a ton of progress with my Chinese. The LTL teachers are great and the student community is awesome too. Every week all of the students go out to the bars or restaurants together. It's a ton of fun and has been awesome, especially since I didn't know anyone when I first came to Shanghai. When I first decided to learn Chinese, everyone told me it was going to be ridiculously hard. When I showed up to my first day of classes, I didn't know any Chinese. Now I can already carry on basic conversations. I highly recommend LTL for anyone looking to learn Chinese!

Saigon Mama

This place gets packed during lunch time. Service was efficient and polite. Had a classic pho, vietnamese ice coffee, spring (summer?) rolls. It was good, but not amazing.
