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.
