The Most Brewtiful Cafes I

lookbookPart I of my little guide to some beautiful and unique cafes/coffee houses from all around the world:

The Grounds (Alexandria, Australia)

Located in a former industrial precinct from the 1920s, The Grounds of Alexandria is a landmark coffee roastery, café and sustainable organic garden known for its abundance of fresh produce and hands-on experiences.

Caffè Greco (Rome, Italy)

This café has a rich history; it has been around since 1760 and was a known meeting place of artists, poets, and writers of all countries. Byron, Shelley, Goethe, Keats, Thackeray, Thorwaldsen, Mark Twain, Canova, Gounod, Bizet, Berlioz, Gogol, Wagner, King Ludwig of Bavaria and many other world celebrities having been regular patron of the Caffè Greco.

Mirrors Cafe (Gifu, Japan)

Covered in beautifully polished mirrored surfaces this building reflects the landscape surroundings. A row of cherry trees is planted at an embankment at its basin. The best time to visit is during the cherry blossom season.

Cafe New York (Budapest, Hungary)

An ornate cafe/restaurant founded in 1894 with frescoes & chandeliers. A stunning cafe serving coffee, cake & Hungarian cuisine.


Truth Coffee (Cape Town, South Africa)

This cafe was phenomenally designed by Heldane Martin. It features a steam-punk theme; adorned with vintage typewriters, Singer sewing machines, old candlestick telephones, exposed copper pipes, as well as old extending mirrors and Victorian tap levers. They also pride themselves on roasting and brewing the best quality coffees.

D’espresso (New York, NY)

Decor designed by Nemaworkshop was inspired by nearby New York Public Library turned on it’s side. This unique design is the backdrop for coffee, sandwiches & gelati.


Confeitaria Colombo (Rio De Janeiro, Brazil)

Its huge stained glass, tiled, and mirrored interior features materials from France, Portugal, and Belgium. Serving an array of classic Brazilian and Iberian cuisine, delicious pastries, and of course a cup of tea or famous Brazilian coffee.

The world is full of beautiful Cafes, I wish I could visit them all!

Have you ever been to any of these? Which are your favorite?

Stay tuned for Part II tomorrow!

  1. WOW! I would have never imagined such elaborate and unique coffee shops. I think my favorites would be D’Espresso due to the books, Truth Coffee for all of the decorating flavor, and Caffe Greco for the history and the flavors of poets, authors, thinker that have sat there. Oh, and…and… Yes, just all of them! What fun that your are serving up this wonderful brew! See you for Part II.

  5. Oh my oh my! And Abbie – in some strange way this post has just encouraged me t keep some of the books I was going to go through – well I still need to purge a few dozen (that were my boys and they no longer want either) but I think I will not mind my shelves filled after seeing these wonderful cafes – and a couple images with floor to ceiling books spoke to me – thanks – 💕

  7. Hi Abbie Lu, here’s a little ditty can I came across that I thought you might appreciate. It is titled “‘Tis So Sweet to Drink My Coffee”

    ‘Tis so sweet to drink my cof-fee
    Just to savour ev-ry sip.

    Wheth-er French Press or es-press-o
    Just not au-to-mat-ic drip.

    Cof-fee, cof-fee, how I’ve drunk you,
    How I’ve brewed you o’er and o’er.

    Cof-fee, cof-fee, pre-cious cof-fee,
    O for beans to brew you more. Enjoy! Charles
