As all good things in life, my first encounter with Da Costabuurt happened unexpectedly. We were in Oud-West for lunch this Sunday and we thought to drop by Cake Loves Coffee to get a tart on the way back home. But this place accepts cash only and, since we didn`t have enough, I had to say good-bye to the delicious chocolate cheese cake and leave.
I though of choosing a different route back and this is exactly how we ended up in the middle of Da Costabuurt, a beautiful quiet residential area in a part of the city I miss so much: the Oud-West.
This place had such a positive effect on me! A minute later, I was already picturing myself living there, editing my photos at the nice wooden table, in front of the main window facing the street. And all the like. Needless to say I completely forgot about the chocolate cake. 🙂
What a beautiful neighbourhood this is! Just take a look at the photos and let me know if you think differently.
