A couple of years ago I read an article on Sprudge about the marvelous cafes of Warsaw which sparked my interest in the Polish capital. I never thought of Warsaw as a hub of of speciality cafes and roasters and Poland had never been at the top of my list of places to visit, but ever since that article I’ve been meaning to go. So when my husband suggested taking a weekend trip to Warsaw last month, I said yes and immediately began researching cafes to visit.
I live in Clapham, a residential neighbourhood in south west London that offers a lot of choices for eating out (independent cafés and chains). On Saturdays and Sundays, locals come out en masse to have brunch on the high street or in Clapham Old Town, on Abbeville Road or on Battersea Rise. There are some good brunch options around the Clapham Common park, but when it comes to coffee the standards seem to decline a little bit… So for me when it comes to having a great brunch with good coffee, there is only one place: Fields Café.
Last month I travelled to Dublin on a photography assignment with Caffè Nero and spent one and a half days visiting coffee shops and attending my first ever World of Coffee. Although my trip was too short to write a comprehensive review of the Dublin’s coffee scene, I’d like to share the best coffee shops I went to as well as a few which are on my to-do list for next time.
