It was a late October evening (It actually happened on Halloween night) when after having a delicious noodles at Fire Wok we decided to take some other route for heading into Tbilisi's Old Town. And suddenly on Lerrmontov street 3 we noticed a small boutique shop with interesting name - Estia, at first I thought maybe it's somehow related to Estonia. The sign at outdoors informed they serve a coffee here as well.

This statement turned out to be just a half true - you can buy a coffee here, but that's actually not a coffee, but an instant coffee for 2.5 GEL - takeaway only. I was hoping for some coffee latte or Americano at least.

Instead of having a cup of coffee here I spent some time talking to the personnel of this art shop, asked different questions, like are they somehow related to Estonia? In fact they are not anyhow related to Estonia, but with some ancient Greek goddess Estia. I didn't knew of such goddess.
