I know it’s been awfully quiet on this blog – let’s just say Anne’s Kitchen is in a kind of involuntary hibernation. I’m still waiting to move into my new flat where I can finally unpack all my boxes and boxes of wonderful kitchen stuff and start cooking and photographing again! Bear with me!
So, for now I’m going to regularly introduce you to some of the places I like. Starting with the wonderful Konrad Café in Luxembourg City.
Luxembourg City is my hometurf. This is where I grew up and where I regularly like to return to, in order to reconnect with my roots.
Not much ever changes in Luxembourg. Don’t take that the wrong way. Luxembourg City has got a really lovely selection of nice places – bars, cafés, restaurants and shops – but there’s just no constant mushrooming of new venues.
So, you can imagine my surprise when my friends introduced me to a very new café in town – Konrad. Sharing its premises with a cool clothes store, Konrad is what Luxembourg has been waiting for – a truly nice relaxing space with good coffee, cake and friendly people.
One of the main thumbs up goes to Konrad’s “No Smoking policy”, something that’s still mostly unheard of in this central European capital! Unbelievable but true, in Luxembourg you can still smoke inside of cafés, bars and restaurants (with certain minor limitations to meal times in restaurants).
So, if you happen to travel to or through Luxembourg, go to Konrad and say hi to Paul, one of the friendly owners. And make sure to try one of the meat pies or the carrot cake – both are divine!
