More and more cafés are opening in Brno every month as part of the trend for tasty coffee. If you happen to be visiting the city it’s worth stopping to take the weight off your feet, order a cappuccino and watch the world pass you by. Here’s our pick of the best places…
Anna usually grabs a Kofi Kofi from their stall on Česká as she makes her way to school. It is excellent, quick and every day they have a different flavour of the day (horse chestnut and salted caramel are her favourite).
The staff always very friendly and they stand outside in rain or shine.
There are quite a few Kofi Kofi stalls scattered about Brno, and now there’s even one in Prague too.
Skøg Urban Hub
Skøg is hidden away behind Brno’s main square – Náměstí Svobody. It is a beautifully designed café with whitewashed brick walls and old, industrial, wooden furniture. They make an excellent cappuccino, which goes very well with their hummus. In the summer their iced coffees are perfect to cool down, or you could try their lavender lemonade.
Café Mitte is one of the most popular places in Brno for a coffee. Their coffee’s great and it’s in a very interesting building.
The menu’s never quite the same so they can make sure their beans are fresh, and they make sure you know the provenance of your bean.
They take their coffee as seriously as some people take wine.
Perhaps the café with the nicest staff is Caffé Fratelli. It certainly serves the biggest cappuccino. It’s on my favourite street in Brno, Průchodní, just beside the twisted pinnacle of the old town hall. Their desserts are fantastic.
V Melounovém Cukru
V Melounovém Cukru is a very stylish wine bar on Františkánská but they definitely make some of the best coffee in Brno. Their cakes are very tasty and the little square beside can be nice and quiet if the weather’s good enough to sit outside. If you visit, ask for Jan Hajfler. He makes an excellent coffee.
