seesaw coffee coffeeshop latte art foodie shanghai cappuccino

I spent days and days over there in Shanghai to find THIS coffee, Seesaw. Trust me, when I finally found it—the last day…—it was like Heaven on Earth!

I found out that there was many places. I first went to the one in 芮欧百货 (Réel Mall), and was sooo disappointed; not as stunning as the pictures I saw on Instagram, but really great coffee. I was seriously wondering why am I only attracted by amazing coffee photos, in a beautiful place with an amazing light and vintage like floors. But I haven’t said my last word yet, and kept looking for this paradise coffeeshop!

Believe it or not, on the last day of my trip I found Seesaw in Yuyuan Lu!! Yayyyy! Actually, this café is located inside a little passage, more or less hidden from the street, quiet and soothing, rather the place to be for coffee lovers and insiders, as if it has been created for all the stylish people working there.

I took this coffeeshop as an opportunity to take billions of photos, in this so white-bright-modern place. I just adored it! Too busy to take pictures and impressed in a good way that I missed to enjoy my cappuccino though! 没关系*!

Please Seesaw, if you’re reading this post, 请可不可以开一样的咖啡馆在巴黎?(may I ask you to open one in Paris? Ed.)

*没关系: Méi guān xì, Doesn’t matter.
