Abbey Road , 3 Taojiang Lu Every weekend

This event has now passed.

The patio at Abbey Road is prime real estate on a warm autumn Sunday, but what’s most memorable about this casual brunch is the level of service for such an affordable menu. We don’t even ask and everyone is served big glasses of ice water, something one can’t take for granted in this town.A few special requests are served correctly and quickly without fuss.

A regular coffee (included with the brunch set), which at most places is drip brewed, here is expressed by machine so it has crema and it’s even served with warm frothed milk. The Breakfast Club set (90RMB) includes two eggs,two sausages, two slices of bacon, rosti, toast, butter and jam,a small juice plus coffee or tea. The eggs are a bit over-fried, while the sausages and bacon are just medium-grade, but the potato pancake-like rosti, a house specialty, is deliciously greasy and an ideal brunch filler.

Abbey Road’s owners have just launched Geneva with a similar menu near the Shanghai Zoo, another space with a patio serving the same tasty brunch.

Brunch is priced at 80-90RMB set, which includes coffee and a small juice
