Go and catch a morning feast II
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.


Green & Safe Café
Much of what this multi-part venue, divided into a self-help shopping area and a diner, sells and serves up is sourced from an organic farm out in Kunshan. The grocery store on the first floor sells organic products that you can take home, while the diner puts out a range of both Asian and Western fare on the second floor. Fresh baked bread, plain yogurt with crispy oat flakes and various salad bowls form a home-run set of brunch.
To get there: 6 Dongping Rd (near Hengshan Rd), Xuhui District.
Opening hours: 8:00-22:00 daily.


O Delice!
This family-friendly French spot serves up affordable galettes, crepes, croques and waffles. The Brunch menu also has their savory bacon, egg and Emmental cheese galette and Nutella waffles. The French themed decor and music as well gives quite a homey feel.
To get there: 208 Xinle Rd (near Donghu Rd), Xuhui District.
Opening hours: 8:00-23:00 daily.


Amokka Cafe
This café's style lies in its simple modern décor, straight lines and solid colors accentuated by ornamental brick fireplaces and high-beam rafters. The Brunch menus offers a smattering of average Western foods, standard café drinks and a minimal choice of cocktails as a tiny surprise. Go for the Wi-Fi and cozy ambiance.
To get there: 201 Anfu Rd (near Mid Urumchi Rd), Xuhui District.
Opening hours: 7:00-22:00 daily.


Kaiba Tap House
The bar is designed with an elevated roof and post-industrial furniture and serves up a big list of Belgian and international beers. This location is going for more specialty beers on tap. All of Kaiba's usual happy hours and specials apply at this location as well. However, a healthy brunch of sausages, srambled eggs or Swedish meat bread with mashed potatoes is enticing to start a day.
To get there: 169 Mid Jian’guo Rd, Luwan District.
Opening hours: 7:00-22:00 daily.


Hillbilly Tea
Known for its excellent brunches, this American spot comes from Louisville, Kentucky, where it's a hipster hangout and one of the city's F&B darlings. They specialize in Appalachian cuisine, tea, and "tea hooch"--tea-infused alcohol--and are respected at home for honest, simple fare. Perfect place to go for foodies who are tired of either pretentious or just plain "western food".
To get there: Room 203, 171 Mid Jian’guo Rd (near Second Ruijin Rd), Luwan District.
