Sweet Bean Bakery, Peja, Kosovo

Hi, everyone! I am just settling in here at home. I’llย be posting aboutย my Christmas trip to Paris soon, once I get my photos sorted. In the meantime, I thought I’d share some photos I took at Sweet Bean Bakery in Peja, Kosovo.

Sweet Bean is an American bakery. Word on the street is that it was started by Christian missionaries, though there isn’t anything particularly religious about the space.

I last went to Sweet Bean the week before Christmas, before doing a little shopping in Peja and meeting some friends for lunch. I arrived at 9:30 a.m. and their coffee machine hadn’t been turned on yet. I had to wait 1/2 hour for the American drip coffee I was so looking forward to. (Patience is one of the few virtues I possess, but Kosovo can test it sometimes.) As a treat to myself, I bought my favorite Sweet Bean cookie (chocolate chip dipped in chocolate), and a peanut buttercup to go with my long-awaited beverage.

Sweet Bean’s treats are awesome, and I always make it a point to stop by whenever I am in Peja!
