At least I had cake

Ysterday I went to check out a new place near where I live – an independent book shop and coffee shop rolled into one. I really want to find a place to hangout in so I was hopeful this could be it as it combined two of my favourite things – books and cakes 🙂

Sadly, I was underwhelmed by the experience. The book shop lacked stick and the young adult section consisted of Twilight and that’s it. I order a vanilla drink and muffin, which were tasty but the service was slow and unfriendly.

I honestly think I could open up a much better place. Who wants to join me?! 🙂

The one saving grace of my trip was that I spotted a gift shop nearby and found these …

Perfect for a shopaholic like me 🙂

Hehe – this is going up in my room. I think I’ll add to my quotes page as well.

Here’s my song picks this week …

The Kills – Satellite

Sick Puppies – Maybe

Panic at the disco – Ballad of Mona Lisa

Emily Osment – Lovesick

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

  1. I love book cafés! Too bad that one wasn’t so good… I’ll join you opening a new one! I was actually thinking today that while Gothenburg has a LOT of cafés, they don’t have any book cafés!

  2. There is one place I used to visit. It was amazing. It had atmosphere. I don’t know what made it so special, if you think about it, it was really like many other places – coffee, tea (you could buy freshly ground coffee to take home too), books, newspapers… But there was something so special about it, the smell, the people, the whole atmosphere.

    I don’t know what makes a place stand out. But those who can nail it are great, in my opinion.

  3. What a disappointment for you after getting your hopes up about that new place. Add Australia to the list – I’ve often thought of opening up a little place like that where people can come to relax, chat, enjoy good coffee and home-made cakes. A place to chill and hang-out! Not enough of them around.

  4. Nice post. I try to make the most of every trip that I make to town, so I can kinda relate. I enjoyed that first song by The Kills, really cool stuff.
