Well, if it is not festivities time!

In this moment of the year we always long for soul places to share with our loving ones. Let me introduce you then Patriarch Ponds – a remarkable garden in Moscow – this year was the most popular destination to spend your leisure time with a stroll, a coffee brake, a light-lunch or a photo-shooting.  I wasn’t an exception and I was inspired to want to check out on this fascinating place. Once I had landed in Moscow I have immediately put on my warmest sweater and headed right up there.

Here competition for a cozy seat is fierce: lots of glamourious places with its shimmering window settings blazed with light and colour offer you a pleasant stay and a good cup of coffee with plenty of interesting twists that I never tasted.  The most striking and photographed one, I guess, was Uilliam’s Café. UC every year does the kind of alluring festoons that function as ideal visual candy attracting and making an effect on all the girls of Moscow and not only.

Gogol & Company experience

Gogol & Company experience

Dear reader, the first place that I’ve chosen to launch my “Coffee Break” project is Gogol&Company Café – essentially a book store in disguise.

You would wish you lived across the street from it but no, it ain’t downtown Milan, not even close to it. But in spite of the location, it is worth a visit and, if needed, a long ride on the tramcar, rest assured of it.

For if you are looking to a nice and restful venue in Lorenteggio neighbourhood, where to have your morning latte and read the last effort of your favorite author, this is the place to be.Tasty coffee and good selection of wines mix with an array of soul food to nibble: homemade sweets, donuts, bagels and bruschettas.

The surroundings feature a vintage and fashionable design, an outdoor seating and, in the back, a tiny corner where twin sofas face a window with a breathless urban view. Who wouldn’t hang out there sipping hot latte, reading and staring at the buzzing city? As for me, i could spend hours there.

So let me tell you something: This café represents your sweetest escape from roaring Milan, period. Ok then, get yourself a nice book and a cup of the finest Italian cappuccino and relish your stay.
