Café Verona  

shareclose

Let’s face it, Blvd Magheru is a drag. But in typical Bucharest fashion, there sometimes are flowers amidst the concrete, or a quiet oasis just a few steps away from the noise. Tucked under (and behind) the beautiful Carturești bookstore, Cafe Verona is a 2-sided retreat: a basement cafe to hibernate-read-work during winter, and an outdoor garden where the trendies wind down when days get warmer. Both serve a good mix of fresh, mostly healthy food. The cafe is a perfect shelter from the bustling winter storms, a quiet, comfy brick basement designed with taste and decorated with photographs by local artists, serving a wide range of teas, hot chocolates — and pretty damn good desserts. When the cold days are over, it’s the season of the Gradina, a garden of delights that blossoms with Bucharest’s beautiful people. Though it tends to get crowded fast, it’s a choice destination for reconnecting with your senses. If you’re a lemonade freak, they’ll have you covered with an impressive choice of original flavors. Also make sure to check their week-long or weekend culinary events, a great occasion to taste fine foods and wines brought by producers from all over Romania in a cool atmosphere.
