634 Huaihai Zhong Lu

Combining chic design, great coffee and sweet treats, Café on Air is one of our favourite new spots to hang out. Walk down Lane 650 away from the busy Huaihai Lu, turn right and head towards the large, unmarked door. Within you’ll find a haven for caffeine addicts and laptop warriors, who congregate daily to enjoy this pleasant sanctuary.

Coffees start at 25RMB for a strong, rich espresso, and range up to 35RMB for a smooth and creamy latte. You can also grab a pour over coffee, tea or juice, all for 38RMB. As you’re ordering, it’s hard to miss the selection of sweets lining the counter; although it’s a tough call, our favourites are probably the German apple pie (42RMB), which is hearty and sweet and the cheesecake (48RMB), which strikes a delicious balance between fluffy and lush.
