We believe that good coffee should be a basic human right. In the last couple of years it became very quickly our daily ritual. Exploring new coffee shops is one of our favourite things to do. Just as we started discovering the beautiful world of coffee, the coffee scene in Tri-City started to grow. Since then, countless of great speciality coffee shops emerged out of nowhere.
In this blog post we wanted to share with you our favorite speciality coffee shops located in our beloved city of Gdansk.
Drukarnia is the most popular speciality coffee shop in Gdańsk, if not Tri-City. It’s located on Mariacka Street – one of the most beautiful streets in Poland. Great coffee, beautiful interior, stunning location and friendly staff. There’s different sitting options you can choose between, depending on your preferences. From cozy and quiet window seats to loud and busy outside tables.
If you want to make your visit memorable, don’t forget to take a look on the shelves. There’s plenty of accessories, books and gadgets related to coffee and design.
Be aware of the fact that location is quite popular. However, it’s totally worth taking a look inside or grabbing a delicious takeaway coffee.
Leń is one of the newest additions to the coffee and cocktail scene in Gdańsk. Good music, cozy sittings and friendly baristas. It is an oasis for people who enjoy having good times with a laid back atmosphere. We believe it’s one of the places that have something special to offer all day long.
And don’t forget to have some of their cheesecake. It’s really good!
Z Innej Parafii
Z Innej Parafii is a cozy vintage cafe in the picturesque heart of Gdańsk Old Town.With a view on the Motława river it has definitely one of the best location in town. Famous for their delicious homemade cakes, we consider it a place for young and old. You can even choose your own cup, which makes it feel even more homely.
Kreatywna Cafe is located in the flourishing, new district of Gdańsk – Garnizon and it’s a part of the Cultural Garrison complex. Even though the inside area is quite small, in summer the outside patio is one of the best in Tri-City. Their menu includes the whole range of alternative brewing methods, homemade cakes and warm meals like tortillas or cheese toasts. Just a few months ago they started roasting their own coffee, so don’t forget to have a try.
Kurhaus is a coffee shop located next to the newly fashionable Wejdeloty street. The interior is a mix between scandinavian and retro design. It’s the perfect place to work or have a beer with friends in an atmospheric surrounding. Their selection of craft beer is great and their music taste terrific.
Czkawka is a little cafe in the heart of lower Wrzeszcz, close to the Wrzeszcz train station. It might be hard to find at first, but it’s very quite and suitable for small groups and families (there is a children’s corner). They offer a great variety of home made pastries and delicious ice cream in summer.
Składak is a beautiful open space cafe with an integrated bicycle workshop. It’s distant from noisy roads, the interior is bright and the seatings are comfortable, so we believe it’s the perfect work space. But it’s also great for cyclists having a rest, business meetings and just casual hangouts. They offer a great selection of wines, coffees and snacks.
Przelewki is an atmospheric and minimalistic cafe in the Oliwa district of Gdansk. The owner Sławek is very communicative and passionate about coffee. It’s an ideal place to start off the day and it’s a great location for a takeaway coffee to enjoy at Park Oliwski. But you might want to stay for a little longer as their cakes taste incredibly good.
