Matcha Bar

Last Saturday, I met up with my friend Nadja for matcha lattes at a trendy little cafe in Vesterbro.

It was a cute place, and the styling reminded me a lot of the AirBnB I stayed at in Kraków — very minimal, and very Scandinavian. The bike ride from my apartment took about 20 minutes, and when I arrived the place was relatively empty. It was a cold, grey day, and I think a lot of Copenhageners had opted to stay inside for some “hygge.”

We both got matcha cashew lattes, and a chocolate somethin’ on the side. Marshmallow puff for her, coconut bar for me.

We talked for a few hours – until the cafe closed and they kicked us out – then walked over to the Meatpacking District.

They were having a food vendor exhibition, so we browsed the various stalls for a bit.

The fact that the cherry blossoms are blooming ALMOST made up for how miserably cold and rainy it was.

Ok, not really. But we can pretend.

In addition to the food vendor stuff, they were also having a flea market of sorts. We walked around for a few minutes and then it started pouring, so we took shelter under the awning a crepe truck.

Vesterbro

When it finally stopped raining, we decided to wander the streets of Vesterbro – Copenhagen’s “hipster” neighborhood.

The neighborhood is also home to some of the raunchier shops, clubs, etc., that the city has to offer. Lemme tell you – it’s not called the erotic corner for nothing.

It was a resplendent day, with truly winsome company.

(And yeah, that was me playing the “let’s diversity my vocab” game.)
