We all have those travel rituals when we explore a new destination. For some of us, it’s checking out the museums, for others, it’s ticking off the main tourist spots. For me, it’s going to get a coffee.
Getting to explore a new place takes time. I think that sitting back in a cafe, taking the time to people watch and take it all in is a great place to start.
Therefore searching out great coffee has been my travel ritual for the last couple of years and I like to share all of my favourite spots with you guys here on the blog.
So, if you too share my love affair with coffee shops, you can explore my favourite cafes that I’ve ‘bean’ to from around the world, in this section of the blog.
More than a coffee
Searching out great cafes around the world is about so much more than just coffee. Cafes capture the heart and soul of a destination; you could think of them as glimpses into the life of a local in each place that you visit.
I love that experience of settling down in a cafe somewhere new and just watching the world go by. It’s a sense of indulgence and relaxation that it’s often so hard to find in day to day life.
My favourite cafes around the world
In this blog, I’ve tried to profile my favourite cafes that I’ve been to across the world. Each is unique and charming in its own right, with one key element- All of them are independently owned. No chains, no franchises, just small independent cafes run by people that really care about making great coffee.
I love all of the cafes that I’ve profiled on this blog but here are a few that have a special place in my heart:
Hoi An Roastery, Hoi An, Vietnam
Industry Beans, Fitzroy, Melbourne, Australia
Union Coffee, Antigua, Guatemala
Chapter House Coffee, Melbourne, Australia
Mad & Kaffee, Copenhagen, Denmark
Fika Swedish Cafe, Sydney, Australia
I’m always looking for new cafes around the world to explore. Know any that you think I should check out? Don’t hesitate to get in contact with me.
