“It feels so good to be lost in the right place”

You don’t need to drive far in order to escape from a hectic day. You just need to be in the right place at the time when you need to set yourself free; and because it is almost impossible to avoid your everyday responsibilities and engagements, it’s good to have some special places that can offer you this mind escape that you are sometimes looking for.

Time stops when you enter Petite Fleur in Chalandri. It might be the Toulouse Lautrec atmosphere, the jazz playing on the vinyl record, the smell of hot chocolate with notes of salted caramel, or the freshly baked cake that have such a calming effect on everyone, that it feels as if your are living in a parallel universe where car horns and angry, loud voices don’t exist.

The Petite Fleur is a cafe with a legitimate claim to say “this is where Woody Allen would drink his coffee if he ever visited this tiny part of the globe”. Meanwhile, the decorations add up to this feeling of nostalgia. An old piano with open partitures ready to be explored, a window that leads to a secret small terrace, seasonal memorabilia that give you this feeling of comfort and coziness, whilst you’re waiting for your espresso freddo to be served in a vintage glass of whiskey.

I usually pin places I love on Google Maps, so when I am out running errands, and I need this little time for myself, I immediately know which is the nearest place to go and recharge my batteries. Especially the days I drive the girls to school, Petite Fleur is the best excuse to stop and try something new on the menu and discover another jazz band from the large collection of vinyl records.
