Add:No. 30, Jiahe Lane
This cafe's name promises customers a French romantic style, and it doesn't disappoint. Owner Xia Zhiqing is a Francophile who has not only established a Gallic-themed cafe but also owns a French language studying website.
L'amour is a rendezvous for people interested of French culture and also a venue for French salons.
Dim light, old French and English books, paintings and old typewriters give the cafe a vintage touch. This is offset by simple gray fabric covered sofas and wooden tables.
On the walls are displays of photographs of France, taken by the owner when he studied there, plus postcards sent by customers.
Also adorning the walls are posters of classic French films, such as "Amelie and La Folie des Grandeurs" (Delusions of Grandeur), reinforcing the cafe's arty credentials.
L'amour Cafe does not have a wide menu, and its specialty is coffees and cocktails.
There are four branches in the city.
