[Shanghai 上海] Pain Chaud L’Avenue

without comments

Pain Chaud L’Avenue

Add: L115 L’Avenue, 99 Xianxia Lu
Tel: 3212 5150
Hours: 8am-7pm
Price: average spend 60 RMB
Visited: Dec 2017

Even when it was just a lone shop on Yongkang Road, Pain Chaud had always been one of my favorite French bakeries in Shanghai. Now, they have opened a second location in L’Avenue, that luxury shopping mall in Hongqiao by the LVMH Group – closer to home, even better.

Pain Chaud 還只有一家單店在永康路時,我就挺喜歡這家法國面包店了。今年他們在 L’Avenue 尚嘉中心開了新店,離我家更近,時不時會和朋友約在這裏吃早餐。


I’m usually not a fan of shops and cafes located inside malls, but this particular Pain Chaud is set by the street side, nicely designed with plenty of greens and natural light. Like very much.

其實一般對在購物中心裏的店沒什麽好感,但是這家Pain Chaud沿街的位置非常明亮、設計風格和永康路店相比更精致一些,我很喜歡。



“Pain Chaud” literally means “hot bread”, and it’s true that the shop is always stocked with freshly baked baguettes, croissants, red wine fig rolls, and brioches…

“Pain Chaud” 的意思是 “熱騰騰的面包”,店裏的確總是堆滿著新鮮出爐的法棍、可頌、紅酒無花果面包、奶油面包、裸麥面包…讓人目不暇給。

[Shanghai] Manne et Sante’

with 9 comments

Manne et Sante’

Add: 96 Shaoxing Lu, near Shanxi Nan Lu / 绍兴路96号, 近陕西南路
Tel: 5465 6297
Hours: 8am~10pm
Price: ~40 RMB/coffee, 40~60 RMB/dessert
Visited: Aug 2010

The first floor bakery of Manne et Sante’ looks decent enough, but I would’ve never ventured upstairs to the second floor cafe if not led by a friend. The small doorway, the shabby and twisting staircase, the dark interior…there is nothing delightful about the route leading up. Once I pushed open the wooden door to the second floor, however, the sweet aroma of fresh pastry and coffee convinced me immediately that this is a good place to be.

The cafe owner is an acquaintance of my friend, and he came out to personally brew coffee for us. The guy at the next table is obviously jealous that we got special treatment.

Mille Feuille, a three-tier puff pastry tower with cream, fresh grapes, and blueberries sandwiched in between.
