Liberté – Patisserie Boulangerie
Libertè is a Saint Martin which you will immediately recognize for its industrial look and the smell of their delicious pastries. This place took my heart. Concrete walls, marble counter and white-tiled floor. Make sure you try the traditional chocolate bread. If it’s sunny, take your order with you and enjoy it at the canal around the corner for a little picknick.

What started as a competition representing Italy in the coffee world, ended in an established coffeebrand. After winning the award, barista Francesco Sanapo wanted to do something more for his country. A Specialy Coffee Roasters which respects the traditions with an International style and an Italian hospitality. Ditta Artigianale is a gem in the beautiful city of Florence. Three locations with all their own charm. Dittasprone is a full-fledged restaurant with two floors. It’s the perfect place for a lunch after visiting Ponte Vecchio or to bring your laptop and work. Dittaneri is located in the lively street of Via De’ neri where locals and travelers are having a quick coffee break, sitting in the open windows or relaxing with a Spritz. I was immediately sold by there sleek design. Exactly the kind of place where I’m looking for during city trips.

La Ménagère is a flowershop, restaurant and coffeehouse in one, located close to the Duomo. It’s so pretty! Our favorite place to have breakfast. They have great coffee and the best croissant ever for only 1.70 euro. I’m craving every day for their Cream Croissants.

”Berlin-based Bonanza Roastery Café combines the functions of their bar and coffee laboratory. With it’s metal and wooden interior and design packages it’s one of the prettiest coffeehouses. How pretty was my hot chocolate cup! We definitely go back next time to eat there delicious almond croissant.”

To be honest, Brooklyn Coffee is one of the most photogenic coffee shops I’ve ever seen. Both from the inside and outside. These guys, deciding to decorate the interior with a monochrome palette of cool greys, white and black totally got the concept that simplicity wins. The coffee bar and window table are made of concrete. The floor is made of beautiful dark wood. Next to the bar and on top of it you will find some well designed branded products as well as the coffee they serve. A small selection of baked goods is contained by a tidy glass counter. It’s so minimalistic. I love it!

Om eerlijk te zijn, Brooklyn Coffee is een van de meest fotogenieke coffeeshops die ik ooit heb gezien. Zowel van binnen als van buiten. Het interieur heeft een monochroom kleuren palet van grijs-, wit- en zwarttinten gekregen. Simpliciteit met een hoofdletter ‘S’. De koffiebar en de tafel bij het raam zijn volledig in beton gegoten. De vloer is gemaakt van mooi donker hout. Naast en op de bar vind je allerlei mooi vormgegeven producten zoals de koffie die ze serveren. Alles is zo minimalistisch! I love it!
