With a delightful black-and-white interior, News Cafe seems like a step back in time. However, this is a cafe with Wi-Fi and a presence on Facebook and Instagram, adding itself to the modern list of good working spaces in the heart of Minsk, the Belarusian capital. News Cafe serves up modern coffee recipes, which can be sipped whilst reading the latest news – a newspaper and magazine stand contains local and international literature, hence the café’s name. On top of a well-prepared coffee selection, there are tasty cakes and pastries to accompany your cappuccino, latte or Americano. Other treats include a lunch menu featuring soups, salads and some salmon and pork options. The venue is also licensed for alcohol and stays open until midnight.
