Do you remember my theory about magic portals in Warsaw (check the Samira article)? I still think that’s very true and to prove it I’ll describe another portal.
On a very fancy Nowy Świat Street some time ago opened a small, even tiny, cafe. What led me to it was its smell. The lavish smell of fresh bakery that makes you instantly hungry. With the big hole in my stomach I entered Cafe Vincent and I was stunned. They make their own bread on the spot! You can even glimpse the machine that mixes the dough for the croissants!
I understood that I teleported myself to Paris. The smell intensified, and I couldn’t think about anything else but pains au chocolat, cinnamon rolls, croissants with raspberries, and quiches. After I satisfied my instant need for a crispy, buttery, and delicate French bakery I started to spot more things.
First, in the front there are small rattan tables with chairs turned to face the street. That’s Parisian way of enjoying coffee while observing passersby. Second, the croissant was the best one that I had in the long time. Even my sister, who lived in Paris, claims that it’s hard to find such a good croissant there. Third, there is always a very long queue, as people, from early hours, buy some bread to take it home. And then I tried the pain au chocolat. No interesting remarks from that moment on. Pure happiness. I can go to Paris whenever I want.
