WHERE TO START YOUR DAY
Get your wake up shot at Kolonel Coffee. It’s the absolute best start of your day. Whether it is recovering from a hangover or getting ready for some city exploring. Kobe is the young barista who opened this coffee shop not too long ago. He selects the beans himself and makes every café latte into a little piece of art. So sit back and enjoy your caffeine shot with one of the international magazines or newspapers laying around.
