ULTIMA PARADA CORCA

August 25th, 2014

ultimaparada

Near the village of Corçà in Bisbal (Spain), you will find Ultima Parada, a beautiful interior store. Once this was a ceramic factory, but since five years photography duo Bèla Adler and Salvador Fresneda turned it into a design heaven full of industrial furniture and a stunning collection of vintage design. The couple travelled all over the world, for more than twenty years, to shoot fashion campaigns for magazines like Vogue, Glamour and Marie Claire. They still do that on a regular base, but they also have two vintage design shops. One in Barcelona (on Calle Rosselló, close to Hotel Omm) and a more recent one on the beautiful Costa Brava. Salvador Fresneda says he mainly collects stuff which touches his heart. When he buys something it doesn’t necessarily have to be of a world famous designer, he just has to like it. So Read more…

BLITZ BARCELONA

August 14th, 2014

blitzbarcelona

From the same owners as Oval Barcelona comes the brand new Blitz Barcelona. Oval is a burger bar in l’Eixample and at Blitz they don’t focus on burgers, but on the most delicious sandwiches. From ‘normal’ ones to Frankfurter’s and Bikini’s. I’ve ordered a Bikini (croque monsieur) with jamon and cheese and it was really good. Can’t wait to try out more of the menu. Like the chicken sandwich or the one with tuna. If you don’t eat fish or meat they also have Read more…

SICKLA URBAN DELI STOCKHOLM

June 18th, 2014

sicklaurbandelistockholm

The Urban Deli in the Sodermalm neighborhood is a hit. An organic supermarket with next to it a cozy café with a terrace for sunny days. New is the Urban Deli in the Sickla district. It seems to be a bit out of town but with the train from Sussen you’re there in less than ten minutes. Sickla is an area where many people with a good job and young children live. And therefor they’ve chosen to live slightly out of the city And then there should be shops ofcourse. There’s a H&M, but also some small independent shops and larger interior stores. And then there is Sickla Urban Deli. Similar to the one in Sodermalm, but with a larger market where they sell everything. From bread to meat and chips to even Read more…

MIKKELLER STOCKHOLM

June 11th, 2014

mikkellerstockholm

Maybe you’ve already heard about Mikkeller? Earlier I wrote about Mikkeller in Copenhagen (read my review of Mikkeller in Vesterbro here and the review of their cafe in Norrebro here). The city where this microbrewery comes from is now rapidly conquering the world. With their latest addition a bar in Stockholm. A little introduction: Mikkel Borg Bjergsø is the owner and founder of Mikkeller and was a teacher before he started experimenting with beer. Not widespread, but rather small. With special flavors in the lead. He opened Mikkeller Vesterbro in 2010 and did some collaborations with other breweries. When I entered Mikkeller & Friends in Norrebro last year I saw that result in a large cupboard: many flavors in bottles that you immediately want to start collecting because Read more…

Most striking feature:

Oh, how I love the brick wall and the vintage table and chairs in front of it. Just like Industry Beans, Mina-no-Ie and Lemon Middle Orange, Tomboy is located in Fitzroy. A very creative neighbourhood: the Williamsburg of Melbourne so to say. At Tomboy you Read more…

industrybeansmelbourne

Most striking feature:

The terrace in a sort of open container. A perfect place to catch some sunrays and order a delicious lunch. Industry Beans is located in Fitzroy, a neighborhood where young entrepreneurs open inspiring cafes and shops and where you will find a lot of street art. At Industry Beans they don’t only serve coffee, but they also have an in-house roastery and they give workshops upstairs. The people who work here will kindly explain you everything about Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: PARAMOUNT COFFEE PROJECT SYDNEY

Most striking feature:

The coffee. Surry Hills is full of great cafes and restaurants. And especially for those who want their daily coffee fix they’ve come to the right place. Earlier I wrote about The Stables Cafe and Reuben Hills, but there’s another not to be missed spot and that’s called the Paramount Coffee Project. The guys behind Reuben Hills and Seven Seeds in Melbourne are behind this spacious cafe in the old Paramount Film Offices. So by that Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: REUBEN HILLS SYDNEY

May 15th, 2014

reubenhillssydney

Most striking feature:

The coffee. Reuben Hills is one of the most popular coffee brands in Australia and their coffee cafe and roastery is located in Surry Hills. When I was there in March the atmosphere was great: people were walking in for a cup of coffee or sat down to read the newspapers and have breakfast or lunch. Just like I did. I ordered the dish with the best name on the menu: the Read more…

ablocmelbourne

Most striking feature:

Remember when I talked about Tall Timber, the beautiful cafe in Melbourne? Well, in the same street you will find A Bloc. A cool bike shop and cafe. Or, how they describe it themselves, ‘we sell premium road bikes and excellent espresso’. The bike culture is also alive and kicking in Melbourne and at A Bloc you can buy a stylish tokyobike, but also a fast Ridley. On Saturday they Read more…
