Paris Chic in Soho – Café Boheme

I feel like introducing you to a very french alike place located right in the heart of Soho in London today. The coffeeplace belongs to the famous Soho House Group from which you may already heard a glimpse of and is called Cafe Boheme. My friend and I visited this place on a weekday – which turned out to be the best idea ever as we made it right on time for the happy hour slot. That was filled with live jazz and an excellent meal deal for Soho (read: 12 pounds in total for any main course and drink on the menu selection).

If I was to describe Cafe Boheme in just a single word (let´s make them two), I would go for Woody Allen. I literally felt like being in one of his arty movies. I put together some wee frequences up here – theese may give you an idea what I mean by referring to Woody Allen while writing this coffeeplace recommendation for you.

Okay, when you start browsing through the pictures below, you see how classy and chic everything is arranged at Cafe Boheme. The colours remind of the late 90s and same goes for the fashionable waiters and waitresses who are very chicy dressed as if they would be acting in one of the aforementioned movies as well. The thing I probably enjoyed the most – besides my lovely company – was the constant live music in the background. Cafe Boheme has this great atmosphere for ‘people watching’ – the food is typical brasserie fare including esgargots (which I did not eat and surely never going to try :)). All in all, you need to go there for the atmosphere! The coffeeplace offers an appealing Parisian boho vibe and the rosé we both enjoyed around 4pm was nothing short than amazing too.

The Golden 20s

As we nearly made it through the week, I thought it would be nice to share a potential weekend coffeespot suggestion with you.
Well, this literally little gem probably has been featured in each and every travel guide regarding Vienna. Believe it or not, it even functioned as a movie location for an American romantic drama back in 1995.

The coffeespot I am talking about is called Kleines Café (Little Café). I definitely consider this café as one of the most amazing and ideal stages for a movie. Could be great for..like a mysterious coffee date scene dialogue a la Woody Allen or an arty throwback scene where people are celebrating their golden 20s. So, where do you find this tiny glimpse of golden 20s? In Vienna. In the first district. Just a stone´s throw away from the famous Haus der Musik (House of Music). Fair enough, it is very well hidden though. There is a super cute old fashioned cleaning chores which you spot at one of the pictures below and a vibrant glasses store next door.

It is such lovely enjoying a, let me call it Fairytale Latte, inside (when you are lucky enough to grab a free seat) or on the terrace right in the middle of the quiet Franziskanerplatz of Vienna. I am sure you will have a blast there!! So for now, I have put together a little photo gallery for you below. Enjoy and I wish you a relaxing and well coffee related upcoming weekend! 🙂  – Carmen
