Eating with Shakespeare

As a college student, you would usually find us studying in a cafes like Starbucks, Bo’s Coffee or Figaro while having coffee and some pastries. Wouldn’t it be nice to spend time in a cafe that is themed after one of the well-known English authors? There’s actually one that incorporated Shakespeare into their cafe. It tried to capture how old English places looked like and served food that was usually present during Shakespeare’s time.  Unfortunately it could only be found in UAE and Kentucky.

Ice cream is really good to eat especially here in the Philippines since it is usually hot.  In England, there are some that used Shakespeare in selling their ice cream whether on the water or land.  Klondike, a big ice cream company, on the other hand, had a commercial with Shakespeare in it.  (The link to the video is below)

    I love food and dining and its heartwarming to see the shakespeare themed restaurants that you have shown us. I think when you say shakespeare in this day and age we get the words victorian and classy in our mind. Its a very powerful thought if associated with food. The elite foodies would pick that up. The masses probably wont however. But still I would gladly put up a restaurant riding off the Shakesperean brand and popularity. However the dilemma here is what kind of cuisine do we offer on that restaurant. Mix of Europe perhaps?

    Out of all the ideas by people on how to incorporate Shakespeare as a theme for a product or whatnot, I think is one is my favorite. Not because I want to study in a Shakespeare cafe, but because I want to get a feel on how it was like before, when people would just have coffee and then talk their hearts out. They would have lively debates in these cafes and for a particular period of time, it was a trend that propagated information and genuine ideas. Not that I dream of being a catalyst, but I would certainly want to sit down and just relax, taking in the ambiance of the cafe, while catching up with an old friend. It would be refreshing to do so since for me, cafes are associated to study time. It would take a whole new look to create a different association for something relaxing. I think a Shakespeare theme would be perfect.

    The interior design of the cafe is just magnificent. Though I am not a fan of very intricate designs like these, it caught my attention. Most restaurants, pubs, bars are inspired by several themes but this is just plain genius. The atmosphere (that i could just imagine) in this cafe is so unique and very appealing. If there was one here in Manila, I would definitely visit.
