three local waterholes, part I - Öråker Lada

IMG_1803

Now, let me finally properly introduce the first of three local waterholes in my rural suburb - all three of these waterholes have opened up pretty recently, all of them includes cafés but their opening hours and offerings apart from the café-bit are quite different, so hopefully there is room for all three of them to stay in prosperous business - Öråker Lada (lada = barn).

Apart from the sweet, unpretentious little café the barn is also home to different kinds of creative businesses; furniture (import and tapestry), antiques, pottery (and classes), photography, art, jumble sales, yoga, meditation and massage and there's room for more (and private functions). Sometimes one can find small amounts of locally produced organic food at the barn and they also host different exhibitions, lectures and happenings.

Easiest way to get there is certainly by car, walking seems quite dull but weather permitted the best (exercise and views) way to get there is of course by bicycle. (Preferably a pink one, with ladybug bell and sunflower garland basket. )

That's a lovely place to spend few hours, drinking a coffee and eating some cakes and then digging into the antique shop, so relaxing ....
