Good coffee in Gothenburg

latte-damatteo

We're back! We had a great weekend - lots of walking and shopping, and visiting with friends. And the bringing back home of Kelly, who has been in Gothenburg on her own for one week, visiting her boyfriend. (Kelly, for those of you who don't know, is one of our cats. I hope I can tell you about kittens in a few months!)

We stayed in Elite Hotel Plaza which was very nice, and had a great breakfast buffet. But as with almost all hotels, the coffee was terrible. So terrible that we opted to go and have caffé lattes at Da Matteo instead. A wise choice, since Da Matteo is one of the best coffee bars in the country. (And, a mere three-minute walk from the hotel!)

Visit them if you're close - you won't regret it. Or just visit their homepage - they blog, too. And the owner just co-authored a very nice book about coffee and italian coffee bars - Bar Italia.

Oooh -- I will think happy kitten thoughts! I stay for the food (and your lovely writing) but I come for the kittens. This would be the "k" litter, right?

I love Da Matteo! They definately serve the best coffee in Gothenburg and their sandwiches are amazing!

Does a week together really make them bf/gf?

Maybe Kelly shouldn't pressure this guy is all I'm saying. Give him a little space.

fatb - you have a point there :) He's actually already a father of two, with two different girls! Not really the guy for commitment. Not that he has the chance - he's scheduled for neutering in a few weeks.

That's so typically female. As soon as you get what you want from a guy it's snip snip. :(

Kittens - I can hardly wait!! And what beautiful coffee. I always admire the barista's skill with the foam - like the heart-shaped one :)
