I live kind of Oost Amsterdam, near to the Amstel River, so pretty close to De Pijp which is bursting with crazy busy cafes and bars. There's not as many options round by this way, so everytime I've gone past somewhere new, I've made a mental note to make sure I visit.
Last week I found a little vegan cafe, (I'm not a vegan - I've been basically on a strict meat-only diet since I threw a 4th of July bbq last week) and had a pretty tasty almond milk and banana ice latte. I took my book and enjoyed a brief pitstop for 25 minutes or so to enjoy my drink before I got on with going to buy groceries.
This weekend, I knew I wanted to go to a place I've ran past a couple of times, called Roost. It's a coffee house and it's in the Oost. Get it? Roost. Anyway, as I said I knew I wanted to check it out and I knew I needed to blog this weekend, so I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone and bring my Mac down and get my groove on with an ice coffee.
