Brunch in Style at Blackbird

Brunch is T H E trendy thing in Shanghai right now, and there is no place more chic than Blackbird. A cafe+bar serving fun Italian dishes, Blackbird is an Instagram heaven. The cafe exudes a really charming vibe, and I especially liked the floor to ceiling windows and sleek interior design. Good coffee was a plus, so I found myself spending the afternoon there working without being disturbed. I didn’t get to try out the extensive drink list, but I saw lots of hipster cocktails I can’t wait to go back for.

By the way, happy Chinese New Year dear readers! May this (lunar) new year be full of delicious foods and auspicious adventures. This is the big holiday season in Shanghai so bundle up and brace the crowds.


Strolling through the French Concession Area next to Blackbird. Sometimes Shanghai you can just be so pretty!


Spotted! Hike up the gorgeous steps into Blackbird Bar & Cafe.


Ogling at the cafe’s minimal and sleek design, it’s a really beautiful space!


A bowl of fresh salad with cucumbers, tomatoes, radishes, and mixed greens.


Food is here! I wish I could’ve ordered even more of a spread of food–the Black Truffle Burger on the menu sounds amazing.


Chef-recommended stuffed portobello mushrooms–the stuffing was super juicy and savory.


Tables with a gorgeous window view. Unfortunately they were all taken when I arrived, but definitely try to grab one of them if you get to Blackbird early!


There was a rack of B E A U T I F U L clothes in the corner for those that want to do some fashion browsing in the cafe.


Love the open bar and kitchen–a lot of great drinks on the menu worth trying out.

Located on Wulumuqi Road, Blackbird has a gorgeous view and some really tasty bites. I recommend the Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms for those who want a filling but healthy main. OH! But I saw all the tables around me ordering Thick Cut Fries so I suspect I missed out on a customer favorite. Other favorites include the Black Truffle Burger and Smoked Salmon Salad. I’m already counting down to my next visit!
