When you expect it least, you always find the perfect little gem just around the corner of where you live… Lucky me!! I was having lunch in Gusto just opposite this little coffee and tea bookshop and saw all this green through their window in the back… Because it looked like a little garden we decided to check it out. Absolutely no regrets, only about the fact that I got very badly sunburned because we stayed in this garden for hours. We had a pot (or 2) of Lemongrass tea with a piece of delicious pie. In the evenings they serve alcohol. This is the perfect place to go to read a book quietly in their tiny romantic garden or in their beautiful bookshop that has charm written all over it! Oh, they also give lectures (every week a writer, thinker, philosopher or artist will give a talk…)!
