Would you like some coffee? Welcome to Lviv!
As Lviv city guides we know what questions our tourists usually ask. Where to buy and drink coffee – one of the most popular! This is understandable because Lviv is the coffee capital of Ukraine! If you know about this fact, but you don’t know why – we are looking forward to seeing you at our tour Coffee Tasting Tour in Lviv.
So, for anyone who wants to enjoy Lviv coffee we offer our Top 5 coffee-shop from our Lviv guide Victoria Permyakova:
Na Bambetli, Rynok Square, 29 (Passage Andreoli). Local people come here to drink coffee. Only this phrase says a lot. There is an extraordinary atmosphere here. You want to come back to this place with good friends again and again. I personally saw how tourists wanted to buy the menu from them :). Their menu has a lot of different coffee recipes. My favorite coffee here is kufayka, but I am sure that everyone will find his/her own favorites. Cost is from 23 UAH for a cup. The highlight of this place is the opportunity for you to prepare a coffee by yourself according to local traditions. If you don`t feel like an experienced barista, you will be helped. A Masterclass is free 😉
Virmenka, Armenian Street, 19. It is the place where Lviv bohemians were hanging out in the late twentieth century. And now it is a favorite place of Lviv historians, artists, and musicians. You should order a cup of coffee at the bar. It is better to try the traditional oriental coffee with the liquor of brand Armenian. Cost starts from 20 UAH.
Galician restaurant, Curve Lime street, 3A. This is not a coffee shop. This is a restaurant of Ukrainian and Polish cuisine. However, the owner of this place lived in Italy for 15 years and got to know an old Italian recipe for the signature coffee there. So now you can try a simple espresso for 20 UAH, or a cup of coffee from a professional for 50 UAH. Believe, it is the most delicious coffee in the city.
Coffee manufacture, Rynok Square, 10. You can`t come to the city and not try so-called “sealed coffee!” Everyone will tell you this! This is a coffee attraction. Your eyes will be consuming the pleasure first. And then the taste buds… Cost of coffee attraction is 52 UAH.
Strudel House, Shevska Street, 6. Perfect place for a breakfast. Vienna coffee house in the heart of the city. Classical music always has been played here. You ara gonna love the taste of Strudel here. It is unbelievable!!! There are 16 types of it! They are with meat, fish, vegetables… They can be sweet or salty. They offer a deal – if you visit the place for a breakfast from 8-00 am to 12-00 pm – then the meal with a drink will cost just 59 UAH.
Well, a few tips where to buy coffee for home as well. As if you don’t bring gifts home, nobody appreciates that:)!
Golden Ducat, Ivan Fedorov Street, 20. You can find a blend of coffee beans according to your taste. Here you also can enjoy the most delicious hot chocolate in Lviv.
Again, Coffee manufacture, Rynok Square, 10. Coffee is an emotional drink. You can find the packed coffee-gifts with such names: For Lovers, When the rain falls, Morning coffee, Lunch coffee, Evening coffee, For my beautiful colleague, Bandera coffee, etc.
Galka, Paul Kovzhun street, 4. This is a store of Lviv coffee factory. They have lots of incredibly flavorful coffee.
