546 Yuyuan Lu
With its distinctive name from the Sichuan dialect word meaning ‘the most comfortable’, this newly opened Yuyuan café is industrial chic – rough concrete, stainless steel and grey terrazzo. Coffee choices are easy: black or with milk. Made in house, the pastry and bread selection is top notch with croissants of all stripes, sourdough and gluten-free bread and a variety of cakes and sandwiches.
