It's always so exciting to discover interesting stores. 

Had a quick glance at this Scandinavian-style cafe, it's a stark difference to the chain cafes you see on every street corner. Nordic Bakery is a lovely place to read a book and sip coffee, if you can get a seat.

Boun giorno! I was greeted warmly by the owner as I walked into the store. 
The delicatessen is so amazing, it feels like you have been transported to Italy. 
If you love pasta, Lina Stores will satisfy all your cravings. 
Even if you don't, you'll be amazed by the variety of pasta they stock.

We were offered to tour the kitchen. It was fun to see what goes on behind a two Michelin-starred restaurant. There is a chef's table in the kitchen - interesting atmosphere!

It was almost 1 am when we finished our dessert. We patted our bellies, feeling very happy and satisfied.

The interior of Sketch is amazing, you have to see it for yourself. The 'Lecture Room and Library'* is grand, 'The Parlour' tea room is quirky, washrooms are sexy and futuristic. Great ambiance, but average service at the lecture room.
