[Shanghai 上海] Moon Coffee 月球咖啡

with one comment

Moon Coffee

Add: 9-B, Alley 275 Anfu Road
Tel: 13310169107
Hours: 11am-7pm
Price: [coffee] 22-75 RMB [pastry] 29-33 RMB
Visited: Jan 2016

I dropped by Moon Coffee on a quiet Monday. There were only two other guests this afternoon, and as they soon departed after my arrival, I had the luxury of enjoying the cafe – tiny as it is – all to myself. It’s tugged deeply inside an alley on Anfu Road, definitely not somewhere you’d stumble upon, and that in itself is a charm. Upon entering, there was Erik Satie and the smell of freshly ground coffee floating in air, with mild sunshine seeping in through the windows…a perfect winter afternoon moment.

我在一個安靜的周一去了月球。這家咖啡店深深的藏在安福路的小弄堂裏,隱秘的相當迷人。一進門,空氣裏除了有新鮮研磨的咖啡香氣,還飄著 Erik Satie 略帶惆怅的鋼琴曲調,以及透過窗戶滲入,微弱溫柔的冬日陽光。店裏本來有兩個客人,而他們離開了後整個下午就我一人獨享這美好的空間。



Moon Cafe has two tables and a few stools. Standing at the bar on the day of my visit was A-Tang, a soft-spoken coffee barista from Hainan. We had a lovely chat, mostly about coffee and a little bit about music, after which he kindly shared with me his playlist of that afternoon, consisting of Erik Satie and piano pieces in similar style. I’m listening to the playlist as I write, all that’s missing is a good cup of coffee.

月球只有兩張桌子和一些板凳。我到訪的那天站在吧台的是阿堂,一個說話輕輕柔柔的海南男孩。我們聊著咖啡的事,也說了一些音樂,最後他把那個下午 Erik Satie 風格的 playlist 推給了我。我現在邊寫著邊聽著,就差一杯好咖啡了。

Uncle No Name Espresso, a cozy cafe on Fengxian Road with delicious coffee. The owner is Australian, though the shop is run by local staff – a very friendly bunch. There are bar seats right near the front window, a few tables lining the corridor, and a bit more space within the shop itself. It’s not a huge place, but you don’t need much to enjoy a good cup of coffee.

[Shanghai] Chang Zuo 長作

without comments

Chang Zuo 長作

Add: No. 2, Alley 764, Changle Rd./ 長樂路764弄2號
Tel: N/A
Hours: N/A (no specific info during soft-opening)
Price: [drinks] 40-68 RMB [pastries] 40 RMB
Visited: Sep 2015

Just opened 2 months ago, Chang Zuo 長作 is the newest outlet by Chinese fashion brand/select shop Dong Liang 棟樑. Located on Changle Road, this beautifully renovated structure includes a first floor cafe, topped by 3 levels of boutique space displaying a carefully curated selection from independent designers, as well as Dong Liang’s own creations. The design style is a mix of modern and wabisabi, with careful attention to details. It’s exactly my cup of tea.

荃二文老板的福,我在回上海的第四天就發現了棟梁于長樂路上新開的 “長作“。 一樓是咖啡館,二至四樓則是與棟梁合作的獨立設計師作品陳列室。整個空間非常漂亮,許多小細節都做的相當用心,而且雖是新店,卻已有種沈澱過,令人安心的穩重感。
