Beatles + John Lennon + Great Atmosphere

It was a great place to do some work on my laptop (speedy wifi), get cozy with a mug of milk tea, and enjoy the cozy atmosphere. As the title suggests, there are pictures of the Beatles and John Lennon everywhere, and there's an almost back-in-time feel to the place. There's a vintage phonograph in... read more

I walked into what appeared to be someone's house then I realised that it was a cafe. Basically what they've... More

Though I only dropped in for a latte (well-made, unlike many others in Shanghai), I was completely charmed by the atmosphere of this former French concession house.

Coffee is decent - but we tried the "homemade" cookies - which were hard butter biscuit (so skip them!!!). I believe... More
