A short break in Tbilisi: Where to stay, eat, party and recover

A short break in Tbilisi: Where to stay, eat, party and recover

One nice Thursday afternoon in winter 2016 I went to one of the new coffee shops to check out their winter menu. You might not understand the peculiarity of the situation, but Tbilisi  still was a city that mostly drinks Turkish coffee (which I also like), had instant coffee listed in the menus of quite an amount of restaurants and didn’t care what was beyond cappuccino and latte.
