Seesaw has been consecutively listed as one of the top Cafés in Shanghai. The coffee boutique has a truly modern design, comfy decor and a peaceful atmosphere. Their fully flavoured coffee and attention to quality make them a local favourite.
The Café sells the most delectable cookies baked by the local company Strictly Cookies. Strictly Cookies was nominated under Cityweekends best dessert category in 2015.
I highly recommend their cranberry cookies, they had some chocolate chips in them! It was love at first bite.
