    • SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
      Although difficult for the uninitiated to find among the back alley lanes of Taikang Lu, Kommune is worth searching out for not only its simple, yet tasty food and drinks, but also for its unique setting at the epicenter of Shanghai's creative quarter. Outdoor seating is usually overflowing with artsy locals and hipster expats, but don't forget to check out the ample indoor and back courtyard space for a free table. The occasional summer BBQ and weekend brunch are an added bonus.

    Kommune had been recommended to me by friends as a good spot to go for weekend brunch but ended up in the area on a Tuesday and thought I'd give it a try and what a nice surprise!

    The courtyard area was busy with good music playing, heaters on and blankets offered when it got a bit chilly later on. The cocktails were a little pricey but luckily we arrived during happy hour and the tapas style food was very tasty; a mix of different cuisines in small portions ideal for sharing. I particularly enjoyed the sliders and the meatballs, and, of course, a very large mojito!

    Definitely going this weekend to try the famous brunch, let's hope the sun is shining...

    The saving grace of this place is that the food is still great for a hangover. The fresh air, the greasy eggs and oversized coffees really do wonders for a serious hangover. The people watching is good fun too. However, the service is bad. We're talking two, TWO separate messed-up orders and a server with the gall to argue with us. We're a table of seven and we only ordered three different dishes. The Big Daddy is referred to in the table menu as a "Weekend Fry Up" which must have confused our waiter since he brought us the wrong dish. Ain't no one ordering the smaller "Classic" on the weekends, Come'n! Anyway, we told the server our order was wrong, he rolled his eyes and argued with us then said we could wait another 25 minutes if we wanted the right dish. Zero marks for hospitality. Also, a friend ordered a shashouska (??) and it tasted like chili with overly cooked eggs so save yourself the trouble and just get the "Weekend Fry Up Big Daddy". That is all.

    Having once been a regular at Kommune, my recent experience shows that this place has become a bit of a joke.

    The food. Tired, extremely overpriced, lacking in flavour and imagination, did i mention extremely overpriced?

    The coffee. This was the reason I initially ventured to this place. used to be worthwhile if not a little expensive. NOW. It is the epitome of Shanghai coffee..... flavourless, weak, and (again) way overpriced. Thetcoffee is pathetic. Rivaling starbucks in its enemic taste...

    Service. Once again, used to be helpful and intelligent. NOW, just the usual clueless service. Facile and unhelpful.

    Kommune is NOT worth a visit any more. It's just another worthless tourist trap.

    If you have difficulty finding this place, don't worry... you missed nothing..

    Have been going to Kommune since I arrived in SH back in 2008. Great place to hang in the summer with friends. While the food is good and the atmosphere buzzy, the prices are a bit much for what you get. 210 wrap is awesome and the potato wedges are out of this world (love the dipping sauce), the bloddy mary's are way overpriced and a bit flat (88 RMB for a large). Happy hour specials are the best time to go and enjoy the space and their monthly wine tasting events are worth signing up for as well (you get to select the wine that will be featured on the next months menu).
    Service is good, with attentive and well trained staff. Overall a great place to go and hangout in the summer, but some improvement is needed with the food quality, especially at the prices charged.

    I have worked on Taikang Lu for most of the last 5 years and I hadn't been to Kommune in about a year - historically I would leave feeling underwhelmed in spite of the nice location. And so this morning when construction - among other things - left my usual options closed for morning coffee I decided to go back to Kommune and give them another shot.

    What happened - was misquoted on the price for an Americano twice. Was forced to do take away in a wasteful, highly heat conductive and not functional drinking out of... glass jar - keep in mind that this is supposed to hold a hot beverage. No brown sugar available. The coffee itself was about the quality of Starbucks on a very good day. Damage: 40 RMB.

    EPIC FAIL!

    This place is a hive of activity on the weekends. there is a wonderful atmosphere and a great brunch on a Sunday (the perfect cure for a hangover). Bacon, Eggs, Tomato, Toast, Potato and mushrooms all on one plate. Coffee is FANTASTIC, and they even have these novelty sized fish bowl mugs for coffee which a great.
