Last week I was in LA. Why? To attend the Golden Globes Award Show.
That’s not something I say every day, and most likely not something I’ll ever say again (but here’s to hoping!). I went with ELLE editor Malou for just five nights – a short trip, but so worth it!
After a long flight we fell asleep shortly after we arrived at our hotel. I love waking up in a new city, ready to explore, and this time was no exception.
Hungry for both food and adventures we decided to drive to Venice for breakfast, more specifically at Gjusta Bakery. It’s the sister café of Gjelina (also in Venice), but Gjusta is much more hidden – you won’t find it unless you’re looking for it.
I’m still over excited about this place! Everything about it is just right. The understated but oh so cool industrial interior, the pretty patio, the chic people sipping coffee in the marble bar, the beautiful colours everywhere, even the bathroom is pretty – not to mention that the food is so good!
For LA standards it was a chilly morning, for my Copenhagen standard it was spring like and the perfect weather to sit outside with a warm coffee and a bowl of quinoa porridge. We could have stayed the whole day, just hanging out until we were hungry again – we settled for a few hours, before going off to explore the rest of Venice.
If I could pick one place in the world to go to right now, Gjusta would be it. And that says a lot.
