Carturesti Tea House: "Books and tea- top that if you can" Cafes Tip by Delia_Madalina

Cafes, Bucharest: 12 reviews and 17 photos


"Have a seat on Mircea Cartarescu's chair or on Gellu Naum's!" Both names will most likely sound un-known to you, but they're the most popular contemporary writers. And that is the slogan for Carturesti Tea House.
I like to think that best friendships start in Cafes and Tea Houses
Carturesti is actually a separate room in the huge bookstore sheltered by a wonderful old house. Quite, intimate, lost among books, it's ideal for those who seek pleasure in a cup of hot (tasty may I add) tea and a word of wisdom.
Many say that Carturesti is not a bookstore with a tea house, but a way of living. It's a mark of intellectual, a placer where your steps take any seeker for peace.
