THE NEW CAFE ROYAL IN LONDON
The famous Cafe Royal has re-opened six weeks ago at Piccadilly Circus. The hotel was designed by David Chipperfield and all the 159 rooms will be all open by the end of the year. The rooms look very nice but one would expect that for £400 / night, so far the atmosphere in the restaurant though reminds us rather of a rehab clinic in Austria. The coffee shop on Regent Street though has become a regular for us, it’s absolutely fabulous – and to use Gugelhupf as sculptures for the window display is brillant.
