As a hard core chocoholic who loves to bake and has traveled to Europe and tasted chocolate there, this is a great shop. I've been studying in Shanghai for a while and so far this is my go to after every exam. On average the prices range from 4.5-6 USD, which I think is fair for the quality compared to... More

Honestly everything is good at this shop. Tiramisu, Layered Cake, Caramel Tart and the Chocolate Cake - make sure you taste them all Best part quality is consistent through out the various locations!

They now have several locations in SHA, including IAPM, Global Harbor and K11. Some of them, such as at K11, serve a light lunch, including sandwiches, which are not bad. We like the 'thousand layer crepe' cake, which is not too sweet and costs 39 rmb a slice.

Fantastic place for all chocoholics! There are so many choices and they do chocolate very well...and what 24-30rmb the quality is extremely good, most hotels would charge 40-50rmb for a similar slice. Ok this is not a hotel bakery. I'm aware of it, it's a place in a mall with *slightly* pushy staffs (but apparently this is common) but for... More

May be it can sell in China where people don't have a sweet-tooth but this shop has no idea of what it is trying to do. Definitely can't compare with likes of Jean-Paul Hevin but it can't compare with 7-11 bought chocolates as well. May be a competition of Dove bar you can get in the local supermarket.

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighborhood 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.
