Wherever you travel around the world, no matter how far or how exotic, from time to time you need to check back in with the basics: a cup of coffee, some WiFi, perhaps even a slice of pie. This neednâ€™t be a mundane moment in your otherwise thrilling trip, however, as many of the most desirable cities are host to iconic coffee shops that youâ€™ll recognize from perhaps your favourite TV shows and movies. These quiet moments when you catch your breath in the middle of an adventurous day can form at least a classic Instagram moment â€“ and at best, a memorable pilgrimage to the regular haunt of your big screen heroes.
Paris, for example, is home to CafÃ© des 2 Moulins, AmÃ©lieâ€™s workplace in the movie that bears her name, and one of the loveliest and most iconic of all cafÃ©s from the big screen and beyond. So desirable is this destination, the owners had to change the chairs outside the cafÃ© when fans kept repeatedly stealing them. Of course, another perk to coffee here is the French cuisine: youâ€™ll want to grab something sweet to go with it, just to stay in character.
Youâ€™ll likewise find quality among the reflected glamour at Regency CafÃ© in Pimlico, London. Early Daniel Craig vehicle â€˜Layer Cakeâ€™ may not be the most memorable of mockney crime capers, but you can at least be assured that Regency boasts the title of Londonâ€™s 5th best restaurant. Its authentic dÃ©cor will complete the London experience, so be sure to head to South West London when youâ€™re in need of a British cuppa.
Whether itâ€™s big movie moments you crave, or the reassuring regularity of your favourite TV showâ€™s regular coffee shop, thereâ€™s a place for you. Check out this new infographic for a rundown of some of the most famous screen coffee shops and where to find them.
