Shanghai is excellent, but let's face it the new money and plethora of ex-pat yahoos does get old. Antique Garden is an oasis of charm and character. I had the Shanghai Shada, extremely refreshing afternoon drink. In my many ways I felt I was home...More
During our last visit, we have found Antique Garden by coincidence.
It is located at Sinan road in French Concession. We love the interior as you will find a piece of old Shanghai there.

We found this cafe in just walking around Shanghai! The Sunday brunch is delicious and affordable, and must have the orange juice definitely freshly squeezed. Really a hidden treasure in Shanghai. Inside dining takes you back in time, the outdoor dinning is super cute and...More

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.
