Sopot is a popular seaside town on Poland’s Baltic Coast, which gets especially busy in summer months. There is plenty to see and do here, by day and by night. From the famous Sopot pier and beach to the main strip Monte Cassino, there is always a happy and fun vibe about the town. In keeping with the quirky and stylish bars and restaurants the area is home to, there are a number of cool and cosy cafes in town to sample some great coffee in relaxing surrounds. Here is a collection of the best Sopot has to offer.

1. Cafe Kultura

Cafe, Polish, Coffee, Tea

Cafe Kultura is a very cosy, well-run cafe. Art lovers will appreciate the paintings on the wall, it’s a great place to sit and relax and read a book. The menu offers fantastic drink choices, with a good range of iced coffees, regular coffees, smoothies, milkshakes, alcohol and herbal tea all available. You can also enjoy their outdoor seats on a summer’s day. Away from the hustle and bustle of Monte Cassino (Sopot’s main street), Cafe Kultura is situated on the more shyly positioned Królowej Jadwigi.

2. Cafe Zaścianek

Cafe, Polish, Coffee, Tea

Cafe Zaścianek is a quaint, idyllic and rather romantic option for those coffee lovers visiting Sopot. With it’s turquoise exterior, steps up to the entrance and basic bar serving strong coffees, this is another arty hangout. It’s also on a side street away from the main busy Monte Cassino, but still close enough to the famous and fancy Kyzywy Domek (“Crooked House”) building.

3. Pijalnia Czekolady E.Wedel

Cafe, Dessert, Polish

For a taste of the best Polish chocolate to accompany your coffee, Pijalnia Czekolady E.Wedel is the place to be. The Wedel chocolate brand has been a part of Polish culture since 1851. These days, the brand has opened a number of upmarket and stylish cafes all over Poland. Here in Sopot, you will be able to try their signature hot chocolates right on the main strip. The extravagant menu includes delicious waffles, ice cream, pancakes and many other chocolate-themed options. It’s worth splashing out some extra cash to really enjoy yourself here.

5. Cafe Stella

Cafe, Polish, Coffee, Tea , Vegetarian

Near to the main Sopot train station is Cafe Stella which is a superb option if you are not wanting to mingle and get lost in amongst the Sopot crowds. This can be a quiet coffee venue, excellent to refuel before your next train trip, or similarly a good first port of call to recharge the batteries on arrival into town. The menu has excellent ice creams, local food and good coffee.

6. Spatif

Bar, Nightclub, Gastropub, Polish, Beer, Wine, Cocktails, Pub Grub

Spatif is an unusual addition to the list, as many see it as more of a bar than a cafe, but it would seem ridiculous to skip it. The reason being, Spatif is an arty venue, popular for attracting the best of Sopot’s creatives. Sip a coffee by the window watching the crowds flock past as you type up your latest novel, attend a poetry recital or chat to the local artists who have many stories to tell about this legendary venue.

7. Kava

Restaurant, Cafe, Polish

Kava, which means “coffee” in Polish (but deliberately spelt incorrectly – it should be “kawa”) is a popular cafe on the ground floor of a department store on Monte Cassino. The advantage this place has is that it opens at 7 am serving fresh coffee from early morning, while other venues in Sopot are only just going to sleep at 5 am when the party stops. As well as coffee, there’s a choice of breakfast from early morning and a concise but impressive selection of main courses for lunch and dinner, including tasty salads, pastas and burgers.
