The Delaunay Counter -- a family friendly Viennese cafe in the West End
I can remember the leisurely late-night meals and date nights my husband and I once had at The Delaunay restaurant. Now we are normally tucked up in bed at 9pm, not going out to start the evening. But I am so pleased that the same owners and chefs are now available, adjacent but in a ...

Not only is their coffee ...

Bakeri in Brooklyn
Bakeri is the kind of café I would visit daily if either of the two locations were a bit closer to my house: casual and welcoming, with an excellent selection of house-baked breads, good coffee, and an appealing menu of breakfast and lunch choices. That the light-filled space also the most dreamy wallpaper in all of New York ...

TIPS
Grab a quick Coffee
In Spain we are such food lovers that we have meals between meals. Before lunch we have the aperitivo (which you can also have before dinner) and after lunch you have merienda (tea time) which is one of my favourites, and is in most families an unpardonable part of the day. As we know breakfast, ...

Breakfast, Lunch, Tea
I love the way everyone who visits Paris regularly has a favourite café, bar or restaurant. Kind of makes you feel a little bit local, doesn’t it? (I do the same when I visit London or New York). In Courtney's case, it is the Rose Bakery. And for a very good reason: the breakfast. In ...

Kaffe 1668 -- The new Tribeca fix
So the very loud, stay-at-home dad that I have written about before is truly a deep and bottomless well of good information. He has been talking up this coffee place that just opened in the neighborhood saying we were all complete and total fools if we ever went anywhere else for our morning fix. As ...

There has been a revolution in the Parisien café scene! Les 400 Coups, a family café, has recently opened its doors!  When I heard about this phenomenon I just had to pack up my kids, jump on the metro and experience this place in person. Here in Paris, cafés with play areas are virtually nonexistent ...

Patisserie Poupon
Having lived in Paris for 7 years, I got used to having croissants for breakfast-- weekends only, really, as who can eat them every day without gaining a ton of weight?  Anyway, that was one of the big things our family missed when we moved to DC -- especially my 4-year-old!  So I was thrilled ...

Vive le café
Every country has its own coffee etiquette. The US has given us the coffee chains with the ubiquitous paper cups in different sizes. The Italians have given us the no frills espresso and the cappuccino. But what about the French? What is the difference between a noisette, a crème and a café au lait? What ...

Earlier this week, a successful beauty blogger in the Netherlands, Nikkie de Jager @nikkietutorials publicly announced that she is transgender. A very brave thing to do and was incredibly impressed by her story and the way she chose to share it. If you haven’t seen it yet, there is a lot to learn from Nikkie’s coming out video on youtube. It is an inspiring message from a strong roll model, addressing young people who feel insecure, misunderstood or simply not in the right place. It is about acceptance, respect, hearing and understanding each other, about writing your own story, about the power of being yourself — whoever you are and whatever you are. It is also about the importance of supportive parenting. Nikkie shares that she is intensely grateful for her mother, who always saw and heard, listened and understood, respected and supported her in her choices and in her transition. We have always tried to be straightforward in discussing sex and reproduction with our children, and open about the idea that heterosexuality is just one shade of a wider spectrum of diversity. Thanks for the new blog post @estherbabyccino ... what are your thoughts? Comment below and link is in bio. #babyccinokids #thursdaythoughts
