Ram is always on the lookout for a quiet place to write. Starbucks is still his favourite (apparently no one can beat their venti-coffee- frappuccino), but it does get quite busy on weekends. And by no means quiet. So the other day he told me about a new discovery. A tiny place called Candid Cafe. As the name suggests, it's tucked away in an alley behind the Angel tube station. It's in an old building, without the flashy name boards. You have climb two floors through a narrow stairway. So no surprise, it's never too crowded.
It's super cosy, informal, they have all kinds of stuff thrown around, books, candles, fairy lights, guitar. And what they call these days- 'shabby chic'. When messy becomes cool. An artist's haven. Another pre requisite, that also adds to the 'cool quotient'- wifi! Yes they have free wifi.
Ram has found his perfect spot, a quiet and cozy nook where he can write in peace, while I get touristy clicking pictures.
