TRIED & TESTED: CLOUD SEVEN CAFE PORTLAND

September 1, 2011

Most striking feature:

The Macbooks. It was like Cloud Seven Cafe was around the corner of an Apple store because everyone in here was working on their Macbook. It’s a good place to come alone, check your mail and get in touch with the local Macbook users (don’t even think of bringing your Windows laptop in here, because I think you will cause a stir). I’ve ordered a chicken salad on a Yam Bum and a coke. We’re in Portland so it’s not the normal Coke, but the green version of it. Without the sugar and produced in an honest way. I loved this place also because of their lamps.

TRIED & TESTED: CHIPPS BERLIN

April 22, 2011

Babs den Haring is  one of the most dedicated Petite Passport travellers. Together with her handsome husband she travelled to Berlin:

Most striking feature:

“They serve an inexpensive lunch menu for 8,50 euro. Everything in here is freshly prepared and produced. You can choose a starter and a main course. I started with the chestnut soup which was followed by a pasta with pumpkin and nuts. I don’t know if all the dishes are made for vegetarians but if not, you won’t be dissappointed if you’re a vegetarian coming here.  Oh, and don’t forget to order their home made lemon lemonade. It’s delicious!”

TRIED & TESTED: KITH CAFE SINGAPORE

April 14, 2011

Babs den Haring is  one of the most dedicated Petite Passport travellers. Together with her handsome husband she travelled to Singapore:

Most striking feature:

“What we liked most at Kith Cafe was the freshly squeezed apple juice. We’ve been here several times just for the juice. And the guy who works here was like: ‘you have to try my coffee, it’s really good as well’. That actually was true, but we had a thing for his apple juice. Kith Cafe isn’t easy to find. It’s hidden near a river and a bridge. But once there you’ll like the chalkboard, the small interior and the food. All made with a lot of love. Great place!”

TRIED & TESTED: NOURISH UTRECHT

April 8, 2011

Most striking feature:

It’s green in here. From the interior (look at the cute green feet of the chairs) till the kitchen. Expect raw food, freshly squeeuzed juices and even raw cake. They’re open from breakfast till dinner. You can choose for a raw, vegetarian, fish or meat dish. Next time when I go here for lunch I will definitely choose the Soul Burger (14,50 euro). In summer they’re gonna open a Salad Bar for take out. Perfect for a day in the park.
