Patisserie Conte – Toulouse

A relaxing way to spend the hot afternoon was at Patisserie Conte. This was a colourful tea room with exquisite cakes. A tranquil and relaxing atmosphere was provided with no background music. Deep red walls and red table cloths contrasted the bright comfortable seating.

Notes – Kings Cross

Notes was a lot smaller than expected for the seating areas. It did have an upper level. There was no worry of looking for vacant seats as the staff show you to available seats when you enter.

Pizza Pilgrims – Covent Garden

Quite a few years back, pizza was all about the toppings and the cheese. The more the better. Not much attention was paid to the base. How things have changed. Now it is all about the base, the crust and the minimal toppings.

Brother Marcus -Angel

Brother Marcus looks like a small coffee shop from the outside. The entrance is a solid blue door that has the “Come Inside” sign. The restaurant instantly has a welcoming atmosphere and a rustic feel to it. Green plants are entwined onto frames along the walls. Everything else is wooden including the wall panels and furniture.

Dishoom – Kings Cross

What can be better than seeing a movie with friends? When it then becomes a dinner outing to complete the day. Luckily for us, Kings Cross has an array of restaurants including Dishoom.

Pasticceria Mennella – Naples

By making the most of the bright blue sky sunny day with a gorgeous walk along the Lungomare, the morning coffee was missed. It was worth it though as beautiful views of the castle and Mount Vesuvius were taken in. A walk around the Chiaia and Santa Lucia district allowed a stop of at Pasticceria Mennella.

Cafe Diglas – Vienna

In the historic area of Vienna and only a short walk away from the magnificent St Stephen’s Cathedral is Cafe Diglas. The cafe is quite quirky with regards to its decor.

Appestat – Angel

Appestat has a rustic feel to its cafe. There are big wooden tables, bench like seating, window seats and cosy sofas. The area at the back is where most of the seating is. There is a lively atmosphere contributed by the music.
