A friend and I recently had a late lunch at a small and cozy café called Doppio Espresso. It is an Italian café with many different branches within the Netherlands and Europe. We chose to eat at the one in Leiden, and were not disappointed.😜
For drinks,☕ I had a white hot chocolate, and she had iced tea.We each ordered a sandwich to go with our drinks. Mine was a chicken and bacon sandwich, which I enjoyed thoroughly!🍴
Doppio can get a bit noisy during peak hours, and we found the tables a bit too small, but that was understandable - considering the café's size. There are one or two small bookshelves in the café where customers can find a selection of magazines to keep them busy while they wait for friends.
Apart from the food, my favourite thing about Doppio is the Italian quote printed on the wall: "Il caffè dev'essere caldo come l'inferno, nero come il diavolo puro come un angelo e dolce come l'amore, which means, "The coffee must be hot as hell, black as the devil, pure as an angel, and sweet as love".
I'm more of a hot chocolate kinda gal, but what a way to leave an impression!
As I always say, "Food is my love language!"😄 And I believe a memorable eating-out experience is worth sharing, and a good recipe is worth passing on.
