    • SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
      A chic but approachable modern bakery and ice cream shop from Shanghai's resident baker's manager, Son Quach. He's hosting a succinct and delectable line of frugally priced baked goods, as well as that trendy WIYF ice cream, which remains staggeringly great. This one's all about direct enjoyment of pastries, sweet and savory, in a very stylish environment. Seating is just one long communal bench, with small stool tables for your confections. It's not a place where you plop down with your laptop, if you're going, you're going specifically for the goods, presented on a marble alter, like sculptural works. The menu encompasses a range of baked goods like croissants, tarts, sourdough, baguette, and toast loaves to take away, four variations on WIYF ice cream, and a selection of coffees, including Vietnamese (for 25rmb) from 20-35rmb.

    • On the small, bougie commercial street that runs between Xingfu and Panyu Lu (it's called Xingfu Li) there’s a badass Boulanger & Glacier called Luneurs that is putting out some of the best baked goods in Shanghai, and what I think is perhaps the best ice cream in town. It does that at super fair prices and in a stylish space, too.

      The store has a very shareable centerpiece – everything from the bakery menu set up on a stone counter, presented like a plundered artefect at the British Museum. Good for photos. It gets busy, but the line moves quickly. Regardless, there isn’t much seating aside from a bench along the left-hand wall and some outdoor tables, so be prepared to wait a little to perch, or to just grab and go.

      The baked sweets and treats are all excellent, from the croissants (RMB 14) to the French apple pastries (RMB 20). They have a couple of savory croissants and sandwiches too, which I’m yet to try.

      The ice cream, though, is seriously top-notch. It’s not even worth explaining too much – it’s just really, really good ice cream. My go-to is the vanilla and blackberry, but everything in the limited, occasionally rotating selection – from chocolate to salted caramel and biscuit to Earl Grey tea – are killer. Also, they make the cones fresh.

      It’s the best I’ve had in town, and it’s not even close. Get some.  

       

      Price: RMB 20 - RMB 30 for ice cream, RMB 14 and up for baked stuff  

      Summary: Stellar, stylish and popular independent bakery and ice cream parlor. Serves up a limited menu of exemplary baked treats and a rotating selection of ice cream flavors – the latter is some of the best in town. Seating is limited and it can get busy, so don’t go expecting to hang around.
