This cozy little book was just what I was looking for. It has amazing cultural aspects and views, world cuisine and coffee culture, casual yet provocative conversations and last but not least a multi-cultural, know-it-all cafe owner with great insights about food and drinks, who also has a level of nonchalance I wish to have in life.
I guess the reason why I really like this book is that I travel like a gourmet, devouring every local savory I can find, eating and drinking my way around cities. Th
This book was delightful. None of the stories are particularly sensational or groundbreaking - it is more the inane musings of everyday people and the silly conversations you have with friends when you get together and catch up.

This was a good read. Nothing spectacularly unique, but I love how the stories focused on the everyday routines of normal people.

The Cafe with Five Faces is perfect for people who enjoy and unobtrusive listen in occasionally to the conversation at the next table. A lighthearted read but bringing in all sort of topics to travel and todays political situation in a very readable way. It's all centred around the rooms in the coffee shop. I loved it, a good read!!

A sweet, well-written book about a period I’m always interested in. It had flavors of Kate Atkinson, so her fans might enjoy this one

He has travelled the world in his capacity as a trainer, working primarily in Europe, but also in North and South Africa, Central and South America, Australia and New Zealand, the Middle East, and Central and South-East Asia. During this time, he has developed a particular affection for, and affi
