Ah! There’s just something about Europe, that beautiful continent with countries that are on everyone’s bucket list! While some may lean more towards the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy or fancy France a tad bit more or whether it’s Moroccan delights that call out to them - there’s no denying that Europe has an irresistible charm!

And although catching a flight to Europe doesn’t seem to be on the cards for us anytime soon, a visit to these European-style cafes and bistros will surely give us all the European feels. So scroll on and head on over this weekend!

The bright blue door of the cafe does not only make it easy to locate, but also sets it apart from the other neighbouring cafes dotting posh Khan Market. As soon as you enter the cafe, the full bar with bottles on display and interesting paintings will definitely pique your interest. With the ambiance giving off a Roman vibe, let the exquisite European offerings on the menu take you closer to living your dream. Prepare yourself for a feast and sip on some glorious wine while deciphering the nearest painting. Now THAT feels a lot like a Roman Holiday!
