17 Fuzhou Lu

A stone’s throw from The Bund and up an unassuming staircase dotted with elephant murals, the quaint, nook-filled Chonor Café lies on the second, incense-filled floor. Although seating on the balcony is limited, if you can nab one of the outside tables you’ll have unexpected, unobstructed views of the Pearl Tower.

The menu too will surprise, with plenty of savoury and sweet options to keep hunger at bay. Coffees are priced from 28RMB for an Americano, with hand pours available from 58RMB. Chinese tea is also available from 98RMB for a pot of Longjing, and there’s also Tibetan yak butter tea at 36RMB if you’re game. Peckish? The plate of homemade cookies is a bargain at 36RMB and makes for the perfect tea or coffee accompaniment. Chonor Café is truly a hidden gem.
