Trzesniewski – Vienna

Trzesniewski welcomes you with its colourful display. The main focal point is the rainbow canvas of the open sandwiches which are behind a glass counter. There is so much choice with the great looking and sounding combinations. All of the sandwiches are made on rye bread.

Aso Konditori & Bageri – Stockholm

An early Sunday morning in Stockholm gave us the chance to head to a recommended bakery for breakfast. Seen as it was the season for Semla, there was no doubt what we were going to have.

Funky Chocolate Club – Interlaken, Switzerland

Switzerland and chocolate are two things that are associated with each other. So it was quite surprising when all the places that we had gone to for hot chocolate just gave a cup of milk accompanied on the side with a sachet of hot chocolate to mix yourself.

The Travel Cafe – Holloway

A cold day and a hot coffee go hand in hand. The Travel Cafe is a wonderful cute cafe. Clean, spacious, exposed lighting, brick walls and the travel theme in the decor makes up the interior. There are wooden tree/log tables which add to the quirkiness.

Pascal – Oslo

A rainy morning meant a breakfast near by to our residence. What could be better than trying out Pascal; a bakery that is well known for its products.

La Bottega del Caffe – Venice

To escape the sudden downpour near the Rialto Bridge, La Bottega del Caffe was entered. Actually, we all welcomed the sit down and some time for tea, coffee and cake.
