Bistro St Germain, Bratislava, Slovakia

A great find during my stay in Bratislava was this little coffee shop named "Bistro St Germain".

We were wandering around the city centre, outside the old town and my eye caught sight of a sign "Bistro St Germain" standing at the entrance of a tiny alleyway.

A charming terrace outside with fairy lights and plants, inside it seems that time had stopped since in the 1930's.
The place looks so retro with old books, vintage armchairs,wooden board games and bird cages.

 An ideal spot for an afternoon cake or a relaxed lunch after sight seeing, I thought it definitely looked like it could have been in Paris in the St Germain des pres district.

I didn't try the food but saw appetising dishes coming out of the kitchen such as baked camembert with salad, burger with avocado sauce and lovely looking quiches. They have a daily selection of freshly baked cakes too. They have homemade iced teas and lemonades that I tasted and enjoyed very much while taking a break from the heat outside.

It is well worth visiting for its unique retro atmosphere and cosy setting.
