Surf Food (4/5) Both Coffee (4/5) ⠀⠀ Double Whammy! Brought to you in part by “Taverne Gaspar” and “September Surf Café” ⠀⠀ This post will be straight to the point as it's jam packed full of eye-intriguing, and mouth watering photos of me eating. We headed to the Vieux-Port to check out a quite large, hidden establishment that caters to all of your gluttonous cravings, while offering fresh and healthy reserve items. Taverne Gaspar was addictive from the first sip of that Bloody Caesar to the Onion Soup, and ending with that delectable and simple burger. The Ambience was a little damp and dark, but what do you expect from an old school bar? It’s going to be grungy, but it’s a bit like the other bars in the area too. ⠀⠀ After, I had the opportunity to walk into the epitome of all that is Hipster within a café. I felt like I walked into a futuristic establishment that really tried to keep its hands on deck to reality with the surfing content that was laid around. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I loved the location but the self-serving jugs of water was a little off setting. However, the coffee was quite forgiving and the sweets were on point. So it’s definitely worth the struggle to get that glass of water and maybe a seat as it’s always busy. ⠀⠀ The service seemed “friendly” per se, but definitely not home-y. I felt I was part of an art show, rather than feeling approached in an inviting fashion, which holds off from the feeling of welcoming us back with open arms. I’m just thrown off to the lack of excitement that I receive from the service, and the fact that I’m having to carry jugs of water and glasses on my own, but I may be critical in my service section for this one. Take it constructively and allow the staff to see that they are on a show when they are on the floor. Aside from that, great coffee, great food, hoping to meet the personalities behind this beautiful idea and to hopefully crack a smile on their face.
