In keeping with true to China form, I stumbled across the cutest “copy” I’ve been meaning to check out.
Yes, my friends, the famous coffee shop, Central Perk, from the series f.r.i.e.n.d.s. is right here in Shanghai. Sort of. It’s kind of off the beaten path in a totally random location but worth a morning trip.
The prices were good and I particularly liked the nifty writing job that came with our cup of joe. There was even a kitty in a cage at the entrance. Well… this is China where everything random is totally normal. Nothing new or different. We also enjoyed the big orange couch as we kicked back with our latte’s and caught up on some episodes of f.r.i.e.n.d.s.
