This place manages to combine three things from my top ten list of the best things in the world: great books, good teas and some cuddly, well read felines that wander around and sleep in the shop’s windows.
The selection of books is not overwhelmingly huge, but very nicely curated, enough to provide you with an opportunity to spend hours among the bookshelves, flipping through pages of poetry, fiction, arts, social sciences and biographies.
Apart from serving a nice selection of teas, the mini tea-house sells amazing Japanese tea-pots and cups.
Reading the first pages of a new book over a steaming cup of tea, with a cat on your lap inevitably brings me to the same conclusion over and over again: the owner of this place has a dream job.
Afterwards, as I close the door of Apropo behind me, reminded of my nerdy roots, with a sneak preview of what my seventies will look like, I can’t help but think good old Mozzer was right: there’s more to life than books, but not much more.
