Chic Boulangerie

Shanghai is magical in the sense that you'll feel as if you've stepped into a different country - sometimes even a different decade - with each corner you turn. Farine is one of those places that makes you do a double-take with the present moment and wonder if you're actually really in Shanghai, and not in a hip neighborhood in France.

To be fair, it is located in the former French Concession, in the Art Deco-chic shopping/dining enclave Ferguson Lane. But it's the breads (known to be some of the city's most authentically French) and pastries, plus coffee, that makes this such a popular joint on the weekends. Seats are scarce - a few bar stools indoors, a communal, rustic bench outside - but the crowds that gather don't seem to mind. Come here for a break, or for an afternoon pick-me-up...the baked goods are worth the hype, but also be prepared for the pricetags that make them so.
