Updated: 2015-03-05

There's no lacking of high-profile restaurants or bars in Shanghai, but how about those specially serving brunches? Here we offer some hot places for going and getting a mid-morning-break glut.


Hungry Lung’s Kitchen
The small cabinet, hiding in a quiet community, serves all-day brunch for lovers to enjoy a relief from bustling city life and smell the cozy flowers and trees. Have a try of their scrambled eggs with a rich taste, or omelet with Hollandaise sauce and English muffin.
To get there: 144 Yong Kang Rd. (near South Xiangyang Rd), Xuhui District.
Opening hours: 9:00-23:30 daily.


Notting Hill British Cuisine
Englishmen are seldom famous with their food, but they are quite fortunate to score a goal back with English breakfast. The fresh-opened British casual-diner is warmly welcomed with authentic British dishes including fish and chips and their signature breakfast plate with sausages, eggs and bacon in a comfortable dining room decorated with bits and pieces of England – palm red brick walls, vintage crystal droplights, brunet leather sofas, and much more. French windows along the sides also offer a full view of old architectures in the former French Concession area.

Farine Café
French baguette, seasonal sandwiches, cakes in all shapes and flavors…you can smell the baking aroma even before turning around the corner. Using organic flour imported directly from France and run by Franck Pecol (of Franck fame), this bakery aims to bring Shanghai a plethora of authentic French breads. They've got great coffee courtesy of an espresso maker brought in from Seattle and a quaint, very French interior courtesy of designers Neri & Hu. Come and grab a seat on the patio when it's nice out.
