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.

Find it @ 160 Harbin Lu, near Liaoning Lu – Metro Line 10  (Hailun)


One thought on “f.r.i.e.n.d.s.

  1. No way! We have one too! 🙂 So funny. Ours is in walking distance from our house and has the same logo. I once watched a “behind the scenes” type thing about the making of friends on E! and at the end, it talked about what the stars were doing after the show and then randomly showed the opening of the Dubai Central Perk that’s down the street. Who would have thought … I guess it’s a franchise? Weird! (I left it out of the photo, but it’s next door to the Mexican restaurant in the first pic on this post http://longhornsandcamels.wordpress.com/2012/05/05/happy-cinco-de-mayo/)
