Emporium Tea Rooms

IMG_7046

I visited these tea rooms with an offer from Groupon, saw the deal and thought I’d try it out.
It’s a really cute cafe with a main room and a side room that is used for parties and classes of various kinds. When I arrived at around 12pm it was quite quiet, which was perfect for having a good girls catch up. The place did get busier with a mixture of families and couples coming in for a range of refreshments.

Tapped and Packed

Tapped and Packed

Met up for a lunch date with a dear friend of mine near Warren Street and although I’ve eaten around there many times before I have never taken much notice of this gorgeous little cafe.

Rival Cafe

Cafe Rival

Last month I went to Stockholm in Sweden. Their food is well known for having odd combinations and a lot of fish (herring in particular) so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect.

We visited the Rival Cafe, part of the hotel and bar that is owned by Benny from Abba. This was the main reason we decided to visit. But on arrival we noticed that it wasn’t just tourists or people who were staying at the hotel in there. There was a large amount of Swedish locals eating and drinking their morning coffee.

Café Blom

Bulgar Wheat Salad

Café Blom is situated in the Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm. On one of the islands it houses both the modern art museum and the Architecture Museum- both worth a visit. While taking a break and moving from one museum to another we needed some sustenance to keep us interested and on our feet.

Cafe Smaglos

Aarhus

Another great cafe in Aarhus. I love that these places are cafe come pub come restaurant. You can go for a coffe, then have some food, then move onto a pint later if you fancy.
It has a lovely atmosphere, quiet background music, odd chairs and armchairs, dining chairs and tables out back, but more of a cafe style towards the front.

I had a burger, was very nice, with cheese, bacon, lettuce and tomatoe between a crispy bread roll. Had a spicy mayo dip on the side, and gerkins- which seem quite popular here but I’m really not a fan of them! Accomanyed with roast potatoe balls with nice crispy skins.
The people were all blonde hairded blue eyed beauties and I wished I had my blonde hair again.

Love’s Bog- og Vincafe

Aarhus

Last month I took a holiday to Aarhus in Denmark. It was very cold, with snow on the ground and like a true English girl I had not brought enough clothes with me. So I had to go from cafe to cafe- which was no bad thing!
I came across this cafe while looking for some lunch, walking along the street I spotted books in the window, peered in to see comfy looking armchairs and immediately knew that this was a place I would like.
It is what my perfect cafe would be like- book shelves lining the walls, a mismatch of nice classic wooden furniture and a couple of comfy armchairs in the corners. The lighting is just right- light enough to do you work (lots of students on their laptops while I was there) but not too bright to feel like you are in a library.
It has a really nice relaxed feel to it with friendly staff who spoke very good English. I liked it so much I went back again, even though I only had 4 days in Aarhus.
I sampled their food- a platter of olives, artichokes, pate, bread, olive paste, prochuto and gerhkins. Really nice and actually quite filling.
