Palm Vaults: the place of pink dreams

Palm Vaults: the place of pink dreams

Is Hackney cafe Palm Vaults worth all of the Instagram hype? Quick answer: not really. The other day I ventured to over photographed spot Palm Vaults to see if it was everything I dreamed of and more. While I walked along the the cobblestone road of pretty tacky shops, I finally landed at the cafe. It was unexpected to find it along the “rubbish” so to say. I wasn’t too hungry so I ordered their notorious banana bread and pink latte. Surprisingly the pink latte did taste really good, it did have a hint of beetroot though. The banana bread was tasty but I didn’t have much of an appetite. The place had a great aesthetic, and I loved all of the pink colors it had. From the plates, flowers, drinks, napkins, sauce, carafe, and cups.

You can get the Instagram-worthy shot you crave but besides that the long trip to Hackney Central was not worth the small little spot. The town seemed quaint but I have just recently explored and currently am in  Hampstead Heath and enjoy this town a lot more. It has cozy british vibes written all over it.

You can get the banana bread with either peanut butter or yogurt.

To visit Palm Vaults take the tube or bus to Hackney Central.

Restaurant Voltaire

Restaurant Voltaire

During my walks on the Seine, as I had just passed Musee d’Orsay I came across this wonderful cafe & restaurant called Restaurant Voltaire.  Voltaire was a french enlightenment writer who was famous for his wit and attacks on the church.  He is most well known for his strong belief in freedom of speech.

“God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well.” – Voltaire

I stuck to this motto too much abroad, and said goodbye to my bank account.

They have a basic french menu, I ordered a sandwich.. just a simple meat and bread sandwich (had to ask for butter since they don’t do mayo that often), coffee and glass of wine.

Just so you get an idea how easy it is to find walking along the Seine River…  I didn’t come here based off any recommendations just my stumbling upon it after going to the Museum.

This was taken in Bushwick, Brooklyn off the Jefferson stop.  The small cafe is called Foster Sundry.  It’s very European-esq I felt, wish of course I loved.
