This is a great find, a superb and edgy cafe 'commune' can be found in the midst of these winding little alleyways with interesting shops

Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly
governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French
Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that
