Bremen’s bonds to coffee are old and deep. It is said that half of the coffee consumed in all of Germany has been transported via Bremen since the 17th century. Bremen was also the first place in Germany to start selling cups of coffee to the populace, and later became the birthplace for HAG decaffeinated coffee (invented in 1906). Our list highlights the best places to grab a cup in Bremen today.

Coffee Corner is a very popular spot in Bremen. Though the original owner Oliver Sappelt has sold the cafe to pursue a full-time baking career, the old name ‘Coffee Corner’ has stuck under new management. The name fits because the store is located just off one of the busiest and most popular areas in the district. Because of this, they are almost always fully booked. If you manage to snag a chair or stool, this is a great place to perch and enjoy a warm beverage while taking in the bustling crowd of central Bremen. In addition to their great-tasting coffee, the cafe serves savory bagels, salads, cookies, cakes, and other exciting creations.
