Can’t survive without a morning cup of coffee? Then you’ll be surprised by the breakfast and brunch spots in Lutsk. These places offer a great variety of invigorating drinks, from espressos and cappuccinos to specialty coffees. On the food menus, you’ll find hearty bowls and traditional meals, light yoghurts and rich pastries, as well as traditional Ukrainian dishes, which are must-try. Here are the best breakfast and brunch spots in Lutsk.
The family café Bazylik welcomes guests from 10 a.m. daily. Inside there’s a cosy interior decorated in a modern style and in light tones. The menu includes popular European, Italian and Japanese dishes, as well as a separate list of children’s meals. The friendly and welcoming staff of Bazylik will make your pastime pleasant and interesting. One thing that is especially great about coming here for late breakfast or brunch is that it is served on the spacious summer terrace.
The traditional Ukrainian dish vareniki (filled dumplings) is a must-try when travelling through the country. With different fillings and toppings, they can be a perfect morning meal, a hearty lunch or even a dinner. For instance, there are dumplings with cherries, dumplings with potatoes and cheese, and even dumplings with cabbage and meat. Most importantly, everything is prepared using only high quality, organic ingredients. Everything is also served quickly, so you can move on to the next activity.
Lviv Strudel is not only a spot with delicious pastries and cakes, but it’s also a venue that specializes in Galician speciality strudels with different sauces and fillings. Here you can find delicious coffee, the aroma of which you will smell from the moment you enter the shop. The main hall is decorated in the style of an old European café that plunges you into the atmosphere of medieval Lutsk.
People who are addicted to coffee should definitely put Kava Avenue on their list. Once a mobile coffee shop, Kava Avenue is now a popular chain of cafés in Lutsk. It always has freshly ground coffee, thus, promoting the coffee culture for locals. If you prefer to start a morning with a snack, you’ll find cakes, macarons and tarts on the menu. It is cosy and quiet at Kava Avenue, and not surprisingly, many come here to work on their laptops, relax or read books.
Frans.ua is an all-Ukrainian chain of bakeries and coffee shops. Created in a street food venue style, most of the dishes are designed for easy takeaway. Tender croissants, sweet pastries, cakes with icing, hot dogs and delicious paninis with chicken, mozzarella or bacon are showcased for visitors. Every dish is freshly baked, therefore Frans.ua has a queue even in the early hours. For a cup of morning coffee, a croissant or a sandwich, Frans.ua is the right place.
A favourite place among locals, Coffeemania is an ideal venue for a delicious and nourishing breakfast. Moreover, it serves fragrant, freshly ground coffee from selected beans, professionally prepared by baristas. Tell them how you like your coffee and they won’t disappoint. Those who don’t drink coffee might enjoy an unusual tea ceremony, served only at Coffeemania. The unique atmosphere is a lovely escape from the city bustle and helps guests concentrate on tasks or work.
Karamel is situated in the city centre of Lutsk. It’s a café and dessert shop where everyone will find an ideal breakfast or brunch option. All the confectionery and dishes are cooked according to traditional European recipes. Bulgur with eggs, tomato tartar, avocado and homemade cheese or granola from oat flakes, served with house-made yoghurt will provide for an invigorating start to the day. Coffee at Karamel is also worth trying because there are all the classic options, including strong espressos, mild lattes and cappuccinos.
