About

After five years in Stockholm where I blogged about cafés in the Swedish capital, I moved to Seoul in 2016. It was a huge adjustment. Just to put things in perspective, there are more people in Seoul than in Sweden! I am still adjusting to my new life, but I have decided to get back to this blog.

I have thought about changing the focus of this blog, but the reality is that there are so many cafés in Seoul that it felt natural to continue on this path. Although, don’t be surprised if you see stuff that have nothing to do with coffee. There are too many distractions here to limit myself to cafés. After all, coffee has always been an excuse to talk about other things.

    Hej! Encountered your blog, while browsing the Facebook page of Mellqvist kaffebar. And what is the funny thing – I also promised myself to visit all the nice cafes in Stockholm, while I am here. I have moved to Stockholm in August 2011 and haven’t been to any of the cafes twice except for Gildas rum. I used to live at Kungsholmen, so my geography of visits is a bit different from yours, so it is really nice to know more nice places to visit. (You are sooo lucky to get an appartment on Söder!! 🙂 ) I am now away from Stockholm for a while, but will be back soon, maybe we see each other in some cafes 😉

    This blog is a definite bookmark! It’s so frustrating when it starts to spit with rain and you’d love nothing more than to escape the shower for half an hour in an inviting café yet all you can see around you resemble miserable little Nescafé merchants. I’ll buy you a coffee in any café of your choice if you plot all your reviews on a map for a fellow expat…

  5. I reach your blog through “Me & Beirut”, and since you like Beirut / “Lebanon”, I thought to drop by and introduce you to my BLOG too…
    I hope you can read Lebanese too 🙂

    it’s http://www.innoleh.com

    your comments are welcomed too!
    cheers!

    This is such a cool blog! I love coffee so very much… so I guess that’s why it appeals to me. Hope you are enjoying your adventures!

    Have a great day,

    Keep on waving at Swedish runners, don’t give up! I would be surprised if a stranger said hello to me on the running trail – but also pleased!

    Love your blog and what you’re doing, so I’ve nominated you for the Liebster blog award: http://6monthstolive.wordpress.com/2012/02/13/honored-humbled-part-2/ Look forward to more adventures, coffee houses, and posts!

    I do love coffee shops! There are some great ones in SF. What country are you from originally? Look forward to hearing about your adventures and your dream of fitting into Swedish red pants!

    • Thanks Jacqueline. I am from Canada and before Stockholm I lived in Belgrade, Paris, New York, Ottawa, Quebec City and Montreal. I have never been to SF but when I do go I may ask for some recommendations for cafés!

    Hi! You have a funny blog 😀 Curious as I am I can´t help wondering how come you decided to settle down in Stockholm for 4 years? Let me know if you are coming to Göteborg so I can give you some nice coffee shop addresses, or café as I prefer to call it (I lived in Amsterdam for 6 years and there a coffee shops means something else). Enjoy!

    • Tack så mycket Jenny! I will certainly take you up on your offer for addresses of nice cafés in Göteborg. I have been planning to go to Göteborg for a few weeks now and I hope I will be able to go early in the new year.
      I also prefer café to coffee shop, although it has always been clear in my mind that my experience in Stockholm would have nothing to do with the Amsterdam coffee shops… maybe I should change the name of my blog 😉
      I am fortunate enough to have a job that takes me to different countries for a few years and I could not say no when I was offered Stockholm… as much as I love travelling around the world, I really enjoy living in Europe.

        Hi I was trying to leave comment but it would’nt work for me. Love the blog which I just happened upon via a google search for “Kaffe” on Sankt Pauls gatan. It was my first visit there today. What great little place with such a relaxed atmosphere. The visit and coffee instantly lifted my mood. I can also recommend Kura Cafe http://kura.se/. Its a little place just down the road from Bonniers Konsthall run by two kiwi guys who really know there coffee and do a great brunch on Saturdays. Its tucked out of the way, so I lot of people tend to miss it.
        Enjoy your stay….. Kim

      • Thanks Kim. I will definitely check out Kura soon. It looks pretty neat.
