Rude Health Cafe

Much needed – a Californian style bright and airy cafe has opened just opposite Putney Bridge station where there was not much of an option for a coffee before this place opened! I love the vibe, the staff and coffee. I highly recommend it for brunch or a coffee.

It is also a great place to stock up on healthy cereal. I recently bought the sugar free oat puffs and I am super glad that someone is introducing sugar free cereal in London!

Bouchon Bakery and views of Columbus Circle

The Bouchon Bakery I went to is located in the Time Warner building that overlooks Columbus Circle and Central Park. I vowed to walk everywhere in New York even though everyone warned me that my feet would eventually kill me but I was quite adamant.

Took me 25 minutes to walk from the Paramount Hotel to The Columbus Circle which I very much enjoyed. I had a meeting at the Mandarin in an hour so decided to snoop around the shopping mall. The thing about American shopping malls is that they are very spacious. This is exactly what I felt about the Time Warner building. Very open aired, wide and it just allows you to breathe. The glass building is another plus point. You’re able to enjoy the views even from the 2nd floor as you face Manhattan, the CNN building and Central Park.

Bouchon Bakery’s restaurant was where I decided to have a bite. A bit on the pricier side but yet amazing service, a delicious salmon and good cold coffee had me sold. I enjoyed relaxing there and admired the views.

I do recommend this place as a meeting point but also as must go place for its baked goodies as it is New York’s gem.

I actually didnt get a chance to take a picture but this is a snap of the view from the same floor as Bouchon Bakery. One thing I regret is not checking out the massive Whole Foods below which I will do next time for sure!

Dont you just love the views?
