最近在静安设计中心里悄然开幕的 Seesaw Cafe 符合我对一家咖啡店的所有要求。好喝的咖啡（这是一定要的），轻松惬意的氛围，有设计感的干净店面，友善热情的咖啡师傅，还有 Strictly Cookies 的美味饼干！
The very recently opened Seesaw Cafe has all the elements I look for in a coffee shop. Glorious coffee (but of course), clean and stylish decor with courtyard seats, friendly baristas who are passionate to share their knowledge, and – drumroll please – buttery, sugary delights from Strictly Cookies.
我和朋友点了 “两人份咖啡套餐” (58元)，其中包含了两杯咖啡和四份小甜点。我们选了有细致拉花的卡布其诺和拿铁，味道浓郁而顺口。
A friend and I ordered a “coffee set for two” (58 RMB), which includes two cups of coffee and a selection of 4 dessert bites. We opted for a cappuccino and a latte, which came strong and smooth, with beautiful latte art.
除了 Strictly Cookies 的饼干以外，Seesaw 也提供一位义大利女孩子做的手工甜点。当日我们尝了提拉米苏、起司蛋糕、巧克力慕司、和布朗尼蛋糕，都颇为可口。
Other than cookies from Strictly Cookies, Seesaw also offers desserts “made by an Italian girl” who apparently doesn’t have a store, but supplies desserts to a few selected cafes. We sampled her tiramisu, cheesecake, chocolate mousse, and brownie, each a pleasurable bite.
The baristas also sent over a new dessert for us to try – a lovely combination of gelato topped with a shot of espresso.
接着，他们邀请我们到吧台，并用瓜地马拉的咖啡豆做了一份手冲滴滤咖啡给我们品尝（在此申明一下：我从来不会告诉店家我是个 blogger，所以这不是特别待遇 － 他们的确就是这么友好）。看着咖啡师傅认真的测量水温，用细嘴壶将热水慢慢的淋在盛装咖啡粉的滤纸上，可以感觉到他的用心。对咖啡不是特别在行的我就不在这里班门弄斧了，各位咖啡爱好者请自己来品尝吧！
The friendly folks then invited us over to the counter and treated us to a cup of hand drip coffee using beans from Guatemala (in case you are wondering, no, I did not tell them that I’m a blogger), and gave us some tips on how to appreciate different types of coffee beans. I won’t embarrass myself here by trying to describe what this tasted like because – frankly speaking – I’m not so knowledgable in this realm, so you have to come here and try it for yourself.
忍不住吃了一块 Strictly Cookies 的巧克力饼干 (8元)。
Chase that with a skinny chocolate chip cookie (8 RMB) from Strictly Cookies.
Next time I’d like to try something that comes out of this formidable-looking vacuum brewer.
But for now, we are venturing outside…
And up to the rooftop, which is still under construction but I can already see how lovely it will be once the work is done.
Why yes, that is indeed someone practicing his swings over there.
Here’s a perfect spot for outdoor movie screenings.
Seesaw Cafe 刚刚开幕，而且所处的静安设计中心也还在装修，所以店内店外的调整会产生一些噪音。不过当这里所有的一切都如此美好的时候，这些小小的困扰完全可以被忽略掉。嗯，我一定会再回来的。
Do know that Seesaw Cafe only very recently opened and is still undergoing some tweaks here and there, and the whole Jing’An Design Center (which houses the cafe and some office spaces) is still being renovated so you might hear some drilling noises. These disturbances are all very minor and easily overlooked when everything else about this place is so agreeable. Mmhmm, I will be back.
