“By the way, the chair you are sitting on is for sale, oh and yes, the book, which you just grabbed from the bookshelf as well. Of course we sell the record you are listening to.” That’s the Phil, a colorful café-bar-bookshop-recordstore-interior shop-flea market and if you find something you can’t buy, then you are probably on the toilet, well actually I’m not even sure about that.
Actually the owner told us: “We don’t sell the toilet (except for the lamp maybe), we don’t sell the coffee machine because she’s from the 60s and something special, we don’t sell the clothes we’re wearing, and we don’t sell the artists (singers, writers, painters) when one of our from-time-to-time events takes place.”
Students, young families, artists and many more appreciate the easy-going-ness in the Phil. The furniture is mostly from the 70′s and as mentioned before, they can be bought. There is a large corner with books, Dvd’s, records and posters which you can browse and sniff through while having a drink, and if you like it, you bring it home.
The place is non-smoking and food looks and tastes good and healthy. Bring your laptop to take advantage of the free Wi-Fi and make sure to reserve a table if you plan to come in a larger group. It tends to get crowded in the evenings. Check their Facebook or website for upcoming events, such as concerts and lectures.
