Well, it has been a caffeinated year. Hit 91 cafes this year, mainly in Prague, but seriously pumping up the Vienna and Berlin categories too. Even got a couple London ones in there. And I appreciated them all for one reason or other: the coffee was great, the people were friendly, the décor was fun or it gave me time to sit back and relax.
I did narrow this list down a bit as I can’t love everyone, but going back through the visits I really did enjoy some fabulous places. What was your favorite 2017 café experience? Any recommendations for me come 2018?
Thanks for your continued support, I truly appreciate you virtually accompanying me as I café bomb Central Europe. Best wishes for a peaceful New Year!
