Scandinavian Embassy Amsterdam

Time – the world’s most valuable commodity. I don’t need much sleep but since I’m not
getting any lately, I wish I could buy time. I watched a video the other day of Stephen
Hawking being asked what the cosmological effect is of Zayn (Malik) leaving One
Direction, breaking the hearts of millions of girls around the world. Hawking, being the
witty legend that he is, answered that the answer could be found in theoretical physics.
That one day, there may be proof of multiple universes. And that it would not be
entirely impossible that somewhere in a universe, Zayn is still with One Direction.

Brilliant. I don’t care much about Zayn or any of the other Directioners (is that what
they’re called). But I would love to believe that it would not be entirely impossible
either, that somewhere in a distant universe, we could indeed, buy time.

I visited Scandinavian Embassy the other day, after many recommendations from friends.
It was named the Best Coffee Bar in Amsterdam by Esquire. Sprudge went as far as saying it
is worthy of consideration by Michelin. I’m not much of a coffee connoisseur to be making such
statements. I liked the clean white minimal interior and I enjoyed the coffee. I liked the wooden
floor and bar. And I liked hearing the people behind the bar conversing in what I assumed would
be Scandinavian, but that’s not a language. And my knowledge of the Norwegian, Swedish and
Danish language is insufficient non-existent to be able to make up what language they were
speaking. If I had to guess, I would say Norwegian, simply because it sounds almost exactly like
how Vegard and Bård Ylvisåker speak on their variety show. But, I digress.

Somehow I managed to link together Stephen Hawking, One Direction, Ylvis and coffee in one blog post. I’m not proud of this. My lack of sleep is making me a little fuzzy these days.
Anyway, visit Scandinavian Embassy at Sarphatipark 34 in Amsterdam! I didn’t get the chance to try their restaurant menu, but after reading Sprudge’s review, I really should the next time.

  • Wow the interior is just wonderful and the pastries look so tasty!

    Dignifiable

    • I know right? I loved the interior as well! Thanks for stopping by Natalie!

    • Thank you Yulia for your kind words! Well, I’m barely managing. I think I need to reassess things. Going to work with heavy eyebags and blogging with a lack of sleep is definitely not something I recommend!

      Do visit Scandinavian Embassy when you’re here!

  • Haha…you’re the funniest. You SHOULD be proud of yourself, making such unlikely connections despite your lack of sleep 🙂

    On another note, the cafe is absolutely beautiful. I love the heavy use of wood 🙂
