Judging by all the food posts, one might say I’m eating my way through the city. But the fact of the matter is that love goes through one’s stomach, right? And since I love Bucharest… need I say more? 🙂
I came across Talia in the search for a new Sunday brunch place to try out on a lovely sunny day. I was surprised to see so many people out for lunch there – and, most of all, they all seemed regulars, and there were quite a few of them. So they basically feel at home there, I gathered. After spending three hours on their terrace, I’d say I agree with them.
It’s in a quiet area just off the very busy and noisy Victoriei Square. The interior is quite rustic, though not in the traditional way, with lots of wood that make the place quite homey. The terrace is also really inviting, especially with sunny weather. Sticking to my old pesto obsession, last time I ordered gnocchi with pesto (and haven’t come to regret it, to put it mildly) and, since I’ve unofficially set out on a mission to discover the best places serving cheesecake in town, I ordered dessert as well. It tasted different, but it was delicious nonetheless.
The staff are very friendly too, as they kindly allowed me to leave my bike on the terrace for lack of better options. Hats off to that, they saved my day!
