Dosage is a cozy bakery and wine bar in Shanghai, located on Julu Lu.
During the day, it’s a cafe that serves freshly baked goods like madeleines and cinnamon buns, and turns into a wine bar in the evening with a simple menu of cold cuts, cheese and finger foods.
Freshly Baked Goods at Dosage
Fresh baked cakes, cookies, and other confections are churned out daily.
Dosage’s signature item is madeleines, available in six flavors (black sesame, double matcha, rose water, etc.), sold as ¥12 a piece or any three flavors for ¥32.
Madeleines might be their signature, but I think the Cinnamon Buns (¥20) trump them. These knotted rolls are absolutely divine—I don’t usually go for sweets, but after having these, I find myself craving them.
Cinnamon Buns (¥20)
The baked goods will change daily, but the Madeleines and Cinnamon Buns are the staples.
The evening menu includes olives (¥38), cold cuts platter (¥128), cheese platter (¥98), and a combo of cheese, cold cuts and fruit (¥158).
The Wine Selection at Dosage
Dosage has a curated selection of wines—new and old world, and some natural wines.
The menu lists wines by “body” instead of origin or price, starting from light and easy drinking to heavier and full-bodied wines. It’s a smart menu and could be a decisive measure for wine novices when selecting drinks.
There are about 40 labels at any given time. About 10 of them are available by the glass, starting from ¥58. Bottles start from ¥238. The wine selection will rotate according to season or based on new finds.
As for other drinks, coffees and teas are served throughout the day—espresso (¥23), flat white (¥28), hot chocolate (¥35), cold brew osmanthus oolong (¥38), etc.
A Cozy Neighborhood Spot
Small spaces like Dosage are becoming increasingly popular for its cozy, hospitable and unpretentious atmosphere. It’s a great addition to the neighborhood—good to pop in for a sweet treat or evening of sampling wines.
Dosage is currently in soft opening.
They have some deals—buy one glass of wine 10% off, two glasses ¥20% off, or by the bottle 10% off—from now until Sept 18.
