Two weeks ago, I was looking through our pictures from the last trip we took in March in Zanzibar and I discovered one of my favorites taken at The Rock Restaurant. It really shows the meaning of coffee with a view due to the 50 shades of blue that the Indian Ocean was proud to present to us on that sunny day.
This is how the idea of this blog post came up and I hope you will like it and recommend us more amazing places to enjoy a cup of delicious coffee.
Ok, I must come forward before anything. I don’t drink coffee at all, not even taste it. I have not developed yet the ability of loving this flavor and it seems yucky to me. Please, don’t judge! I love the smell of it, but I let the pleasure of drinking it to my boyfriend who sure knows how to appreciate a good cup of coffee. That doesn’t mean I don’t like stealing his cup on every occasion and take some good pictures with it that would trick you into believing that I am a big fan.
Still, over the years, I had some amazing views for coffees around the world that is why I want to share them with you. So, here is My Top 10 Coffees with a view:
- The Rock Restaurant, Zanzibar
Taking into consideration that the coffee at The Rock inspired me to write this post, I will start with it. Imagine a small floating restaurant in the Indian Ocean offering stunning views, delicious food and coffee. That sounds like a good place to dream, right?
- Piazza del Duomo, Milano
Italians are known all over the world among coffee lovers and they do take this ritual very serious. When you talk about good coffee, you surely must start by thinking of Italy. As Lonely Planet once said, “If coffee has a spiritual home, this is it”. And when good coffee is mixed with a killer view of the Duomo, you got perfection!
- Via Veneto, Rome
The first city break of the year in Rome took us at the lovely Grand Hotel Palace which offered us the perfect place to enjoy the morning coffee right on our balcony. We stayed there for hours enjoying the sunny weather and, of course, la dolce vita! (If you want to find out more about our lovely experience there, click HERE)
- Lago di Garda
Sticking on the Italian side, I should not forget my favorite view of Garda Lake. Last year, I surprised my boyfriend for his birthday with a killer view and we didn’t want to leave that gorgeous balcony anymore. And since he loves a good cup of coffee, we just found the perfect place to enjoy it.
- Café de Paris, Monte Carlo
Let’s not forget about this iconic coffee spot in the heart of the luxurious Monte Carlo. If you plan to visit the French Riviera, you sure must put it on your to do list! This is the perfect place for people and cars watching right in front of the beautiful Casino.
PS: The coffee goes better with a glass of champagne on the side 🙂
- Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Let’s move to the Asian side and we arrive to the best view in Kuala Lumpur with the most iconic buildings in town: Petronas and Menara Towers. Even better yet, this view is from the rooftop pool at our hotel where we started all our mornings.
- Sénéquier, Saint Tropez
The bohemian ambience of Saint Tropez fits perfectly with drinking coffee and enjoying French cuisine all day long. My favorite place is Café-Pâtisserie Sénéquier, right in the heart of Port of Saint Tropez from 1887.
- Kizimkazi, Zanzibar
The first thing we did when we arrived in paradise was going to the beach restaurant and enjoying a fresh cocktail and a good cup of coffee. The perfect ocean view, colorful flowers and my boyfriend by my side. My perfection. I wish I could go back in a heartbeat!
- Nikki Beach Marbella
I don’t think Nikki Beach needs further explanation since it is known all over the world for its luxurious venues and unforgettable parties. Last year, on our Marbella trip, we enjoyed a lovely day and their coffee made its way to this top. How? Well, it is not just coffee, it is a big plate of yummy desserts accompanied by coffee. Need I say more?
- Red Square, Moscow
One of my biggest dreams came true when we managed to visit Moscow for winter holidays and spend New Year’s Eve there. You literally cannot imagine how beautiful the Christmas Market situated in the Red Square could be. I have seen so many markets in Europe, but I think this became my favorite.
PS: I must admit my cup had hot tea in it, not coffee, but you get the idea 🙂

And because I want us to finish this articol with a big smile on our faces, I want to show you what happens when you fool around too much with you boyfriend’s coffee with the sole purpose of preparing a new blog post: you end up waiting for Dubai Mall to open so you would not spend the whole day with a big brown spot on your white T-shirt.
