Where are you? (Or: Grandcafé Haagse Bluf)

Here’s a random photo I took while out walking early one morning last month:

Grandcafe Haagse Bluf in The Hague The text reads “Where are you?? At the most beautiful terrace in The Hague!” This is Grandcafé Haagse Bluf, part of the Haagse Bluf upscale shopping area.

And, yet another iced cappuccino and iced chai latte at Hometown coffee.

What can I say… except that they are delicious!

Palace Garden (Or: Enjoying a day off)

As I mentioned in my last blog post, Thursday was a holiday here in the Netherlands – Ascension Day (40 days after Easter). It was also Liberation Day (Dutch | English). For most people, that is only an official holiday every 5 years (2015, 2020, …) so most people had the day off because of Ascension Day.

But the reason Thursday was so great was the weather – 18c, or low 60s. A great day of sun that almost everyone got to enjoy. Since Friday we’ve been in the 70s.

Marco and I went to Hometown Coffee where I again ordered my iced mocha coffee. Yum! Marco got a blended cappuccino. Due to the good weather we decided to take a walk. Somewhere along the way we decided to go to the Palace Garden (Paleistuin in Dutch) where we found a bench to soak up some sun and watch the kids play on the playground.

And that’s the thing – good weather is precious here in the Netherlands and something to enjoy. The city comes alive in this time, with the outdoor cafés crowded, every table in the sun taken. It’s a great time!

(And here is a shoutout to my mom on this Mother’s Day!)

On the rocks (Or: Hometown coffee)

On Sunday Marco and I went to Hometown Coffee. It was Easter but a lot of cafés and restaurants were open regardless. This cafe is close to Spui Buitenhof (a movie theater) and Popo’s, a Mexican restaurant.

I ordered my favorite drink there: iced mocha coffee on the rocks. Yum!
