Nominated by:
The atlas contains a list of cafés where "one can think". It complements the list at (about 50 of the recommended cafés appear on the paper-poster which is available on request.)

The criteria for my approval are very subjective. What matters to me is the atmosphere, lighting and noise level. The quality of the coffee is immaterial (in fact, I drink only Israeli instant coffee).
a café "visited and photographed" (I took all the pictures appearing in this atlas).
a café "nominated, not yet visited" (you are encouraged to send me more recommendations).
you can select a country from a menu of countries in which at least one café is located.
after you have selected a country, you can select a city from the menu of cities in which at least one café is located.
Click on a Café:
When you click on a café icon, a window with the café's details will open (it will include a photo if I have visited it). When the window is closed, the focus will adjust to the city in which the café is located.

If you click on a concentration of cafes, a "star" of cafés is opened. Then, you can either: (1) close it by clicking outside the "star" and the zoom will change back to the cafés in the star; or (2) click on a specific café in the star and then the zoom will switch to the city where the cafe is located or specific cafés in the star (depending on your previous setting).
Selecting an area:
Click Then use the mouse to define a box by clicking the NW and SE corners.
Double click to zoom in. Or, use the scale on the left to change the zoom. Drag the mouse to your destination..
* A warning:
1. No coffee shop chains are allowed in this atlas.
2. Being included in the atlas is orthogonal to the quality of the coffee (I drink only Israeli instant coffee…)
