Bread & Dessert in Shanghai

Paul Bakery
Paul Bakery, Shanghai

Someone said that people who do not love desserts do not know the happiness of life. Actually, bread and desserts play an important role in dining, especially among the westerners. You are sure to miss them during your stay in China although the Chinese local foods are also appealing.

Shanghai has numerous bakeries and dessert shops, offering all kinds of bread, desserts, cakes, chocolate, ice cream, fruits and beverages. You can have a leisurely time in these small shops with a helping of dessert; or you can ask for food deliveries.

Usually there are discounts from 10% to 50% in these shops during afternoon and evening hours as the bread and cakes are perishable. However, you'd better not have too many sweet things for sake of your health!
