    Editor’s Description

    Last updated: Jun 12, 2019
    Advertised as a take-away coffee spot, but press on and you’ll find some outdoor seating outside RAC in an inner courtyard-like space, with creative industry buildings and old Shanghai houses mixing it up. Share a bench at the big table with minor Weibo celebrities and peep on the old gentleman who has stepped out of his apartment for a walk in his pajamas. Plus, really good coffee served in a porcelain cup!

    Crepes with a twist?
  • Smartreviews

    • There is always a long queue and waiting list for this venue. Very packed inside, especially on weekends, as it has gone popular among expats and locals. I was wondering why? Honestly, few places/things deserve a long wait so I decided to run some errands around while my name climbed up the list – I was still curious about Rac.

      Once seated inside, I looked around and liked the distribution: few regular tables and most of the seats arranged to share with strangers. I like this “socialization seating method” but not everyone wishes to share the table with somebody they don’t know. That is polemic, I guess, although I like it.

      We went for a coffee and sweet crepes. Americano: perfect. Mouthwatering aroma and balanced taste, it goes straight into my list of “artisanal coffee places”.

      Went for tea time, so my friend and I, decided to go for the classic nutella crepe with a rain of almond crumble on top and the salted caramel one. Surprise? Yeah, but not a pleasant surprise! Where is the topping? I was craving for a waterfall of warm nutella to please my soul and my friend for salted caramel! Guys, why are the toppings so little? they are not enough. The best was the roasted caramelized almonds. I mean, the whole crepe wasn't bad at all, but it is not cheap for being so little and after that I was still craving my deserved portion of nutella … I guess I will have to continue waiting for a good nutella crepe in the city.

      Nice place: yes, joyful and vibrant.

      Kind staff: yes.

      Good service: yes.

      Food: yummy but for the portion, scarce toppings and pricey.

       I would give a second chance and come back for a brunch option but definitely won't make that line.
