Great view of the sunset in the middle of the national park: Observatory Bar @ Arenal Observatory Lodge (17. April 2017)

When you intend to visit the El Arenal National Park, I can recommend you two things: a) stay at the Arenal Observatory Lodge & Spa (which is the only one located right in the national park) and b) bring good shoes. It is definitely worth staying here as there is a beautiful trail area where […]

Good bar to have a drink after Chapultepec: King Cole Bar @ The St. Regis Mexico City (14. April 2017)

When you visit Mexico City, you have to talk a walk through Chapultepec – a huge park in the center of the city! And if you are there during a holiday or a weekend, it’s absolutely packed! It is really kind of incredible how big the park is – and it is actually quite beautiful, […]

Little café with limited attention in service: Bäckerei Hänggi (1. April 2017)

Little café with limited attention in service: Bäckerei Hänggi (1. April 2017)

The Bäckerei Hänggi is completely packed on a Saturday morning – there are absolutely no tables free until you are ready to wait for a bit. When I finally scored a table, I was attended quite quickly and my “Mint Tea” (CHF 4.50) was served within minutes. However, after that, the attention of the waiters […]

Great place to relax between shopping trips: Magazine zum Globus (1. April 2017)

Great place to relax between shopping trips: Magazine zum Globus (1. April 2017)

The restaurant on the top floor of the Globus in Lucerne is a rather simple place with regards to its interior but it is also perfect to flee from the stressed Saturday shoppers and enjoy a “double espresso” (CHF 6.00) and a “croissant” (CHF 1.50). CHF 6.00 for a double espresso in Lucerne seems a […]

Perfect spot to relax before visiting the Institut Lumière: Le Bistro Autrement (26. March 2017)

If you are into movies and film history, I can definitely recommend you to visit the ‘Institut Lumière’ but as we are still in France, the opening hours are more of a recommendation than actual opening hours, so I ended up looking for a café to wait until the place actually opens and found ‘Le […]

Lovely atmosphere but weak service: Bar @ Cour des Loges (25. March 2017)

Lovely atmosphere but weak service: Bar @ Cour des Loges (25. March 2017)

Given the ‘Restaurant Les Loges’ only opens at 7:30pm sharp and we were a couple of minutes early, I ended up in the Bar at the Hotel Cour des Loges. As I am a huge ‘Mule’ fan, I went for the “London Mule (Gin Bombay Sapphire, Lemon, Ginger Beer)” (EUR 14.00). The drink is simple […]

Perfect to hide from rain but not recommended: Café Bar de la Ficelle (25. March 2017)

When it started raining we entered the first café there was and ended up at the Café Bar de la Ficelle – well, I guess else we wouldn’t have entered but given the rain, it seemed like the right option. The place was crammed and for more than 10 minutes we were not attended. After […]

A speak easy which is not really a speak easy anymore: Buck and Breck (5. January 2017)

A speak easy which is not really a speak easy anymore: Buck and Breck (5. January 2017)

The Buck and Breck is a speak easy which is not really a speak easy anymore. While the entrance is still quite hidden and you have to know where to ring the bell in order to be admitted (and it looks nothing like a bar from outside), the information around the bar is quite publicly […]
