Influenced by nearby Vienna, café culture in Bratislava is very much alive. After a limited supply of questionable coffee under Communism, a renewed enthusiasm for quality beans has led the way in Bratislava’s explosion of trendy, hipster, posh, and classic cafés. New cafés are opening regularly in the city, so don’t hesitate to pop in if you spot one that looks great, or try one of our suggestions of the very best cafés in Bratislava.
Due to Gorila’s popularity, the owners decided to expand their business. They opened Urban House in a great Old Town location with a more extensive food menu and more space for socializing, working, or people-watching. Urban House also has a secret bar on the top floor, a DJ stand for late nights, and some of the most creative cocktails in town. It’s the kind of place you could spend all day eating, drinking, jamming, and enjoying your time in Bratislava.
Entering Zeppelin Cafe feels like stepping into an elderly auntie or grandmother’s home. The café is so very cozy, and the ladies who work there are extremely kind and friendly. You will be immediately drawn to the large display case for the daily offer of cakes towards the rear of the café. We suggest a coffee, a slice of homemade cake, and a seat at one of the cute tables on the street outside the store.
Step into this old world bakery and you will feel like you have stepped back in time. The highlight of a visit to Konditorei Kormuth has to be the magical interior, with the brightly lit display café full of all sorts of tempting sweets. If atmosphere is important to you, then you have to stop here for a coffee, a cake, or some ice cream.
With its large, open windows, industrial design, and ample seating space, Five Points might look like a large coffee operation. In fact, Five Points is a local business committed to serving only the best quality coffee. Along with your coffee, you can also order scrambled eggs with bacon and sausage for breakfast or a tasty club sandwich for lunch. When visiting Five Points, don’t order your regular coffee, but try something daring off of the barista daily offer, like the espresso tonic!
