    • SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
      Cotton's chilled-out villa atmosphere is also the place to go if you're not used to Chinese food and don't plan on becoming acclimated. They've done a good job of creating a pretty spot where foreigners can feel like they are in any city. The outdoor dining area recently became a covered patio. Sunday brunch.

    Went to Cotton's on Sunday evening with a group of 20 friends and though we were early for the reservation, the staff managed to place us our tables (though it had to do with the holiday season). The outdoor seating seems like something of a done up lawn and with the lights, it gives a warm feel to the dinner. It's perfect place to hang with a group of friends. We were a little disappointed to find there wasn't live music, again probably it was because of the ongoing golden week. They've couches inside & on the 2nd floor, giving a more private touch to it.
    We got happy hour prices till 8 pm (on Sunday while their happy hour menu runs Mon-Thu) because of our friend's birthday.
    The let down of the evening was the watered down drinks. I ordered a Mojito..errr..my ayi could have made a better one, in her sleep. The staff were patient to take orders from 20+ of us and didn't screw up the orders (which is common in Shanghai). Thumbs up to the staff.

    Nice garden, okay food and drinks

    I keep going back because of the good location and the nice vibe, although that place starts to look run down somehow. I had promised myself to stay away from Cotton's food after some bad experiences at their Xinhua Lu location, but unfortunately today I tried brunch at their Anting Lu location. Big mistake. SmartShanghai's review is way too diplomatic saying "Brunch is not one of this place's finer moments". It's aweful. It's like the food you get on a China Eastern Airlines flight. I actually think they use the same bread supplier. Bread that's been in a freezer for too long and warmed up. When you charge 138rmb for brunch, would it hurt to get a fresh croissant from a quality bread supplier ? Or buy (make) a nice jam instead of offering the cheapest jam they could find at Lianhua ? Cotton's could only get away with this a few years ago when there were limited quality wester food options around. Go for their nice patio in summer, have a drink but eat elsewhere.
    Excellent hangover option

    I went to Cottons to have brunch on Sunday with a bunch of friends. Cottons has been a Shanghai favorite for almost ten years now. It is a great option if you want to enjoy the sunshine as they have a nice terrace outside of this big tastefully decorated character house. They arranged some sort of garden outside so that you feel cut from the hectic rhythm of Shanghai and it gives you a nice feeling of time running slowly.

    For 128 RMB, you get a set brunch with a main and the highlight of the brunch: free flow of coffee or tea!! This is really appreciable if you have been partying like hell the night before. There are like ten main options such as the French brunch (nutella and banana pancake, fruit salad and toasts with butter and jam), the Greek brunch (scrambled eggs, lamb patties, olive tapenade, Greek salad) or the American brunch (eggs, sausages or bacon, pancakes and hashbrowns). Anyway, there is something for every taste here and everyone came out full and satisfied of the food quality.

    Service is ok, just as what you can expect in Shanghai.

    Location is convenient: just 5 minutes walk from the line 1 Hengshan lu metro station, or 15 minutes away from the Changshu lu metro station (lines 1 and 7).

    I have been there many times and will go again for sure, safe choice as you know what to expect, again, great terrace and very affordable brunch!
