I found two gems this time I was in Bucharest. With the help of course, by a friend of mine.
An English book store and a wonderful coffee palace. Palace metaphorically speaking as the place was small in size.
The English bookstore Anthony Frost, is calm and a small oasis for reading and writing. I sat there for 2 hours preparing some work, on the cool terrace , in the shade, while the sun was gazing and temperature was 38 degrees.
The “coffee palace” is called Delicatese Florescu and is owned and run by Mr Florescu himself. A charismatic man who knows coffee like no-one I met before. Passion for what he does and great knowledge says it all about this man. Cosy atmosphere and I would like to come back again and again. The Santa Helena coffee was outstanding.
