“Over hyped”
Reviewed January 4, 2012

I found it online and went there while with my girlfriend on our weekly strolls through Shanghai. The lineup was not super long, but I think we were just lucky. The cake LOOKS AMAZING, but really just tastes average with an above average price. I don't think I would go back again. If I do, I'll definitely just have a coffee though.

The cakes look great but are not moist. Disappointed on two occasions. Won't return.

“Disappointing food and coffee and grumpy manager let this place down!”
Reviewed July 16, 2011

My partner and I visited this cafe after hearing about it from a friend - I thought that it would be a refreshing change to the usual big coffee chains, however we were totally disappointed with the quality of the coffee and cakes on offer. We had a white chocolate cheesecake which didn't have an ounce of white chocolate flavour to it and was very dry, almost like a sponge cake rather than a rich, creamy chesecake should be - we even had to wash it down with our coffee because it was so dry! It was also tasteless and therefore very disappointing - maybe other cakes are better? The coffees were also very expensive for what they were and were nothing special at all. The western lady who I assume is the manager couldn't raise a single smile and looked very miserable and grumpy - not a great welcome when you enter the cafe! I definitely wouldn't go again - there are better independent and unique coffee shops around the city.
