Brief of La Varza, Academy of Arts Branch
This place is a little difficult to find: take the side street off of Nanshan Road (to the north of Bernini) and walk a little way. You will find an entrance to the Art Academy. Nestled in the quiet courtyard is this café that has been decorated with a hodgepodge of artistic styles, ranging from Chinese classical paintings to pop art, silk-screened tabletops (Andy Warhol style). The high ceiling gives the place a very museumesque feel, and the quality Levazza coffee tops off the experience.
