Industrial premises mixed with green jungle and tree branches. You feel immediately welcome and cosy here. During our first visit, we felt attracted by small details, admiring each piece on the walls or the window ledge. This is the only place in Bratislava serving coffee roasted in San Francisco. Welcome to W Cafe – we guarantee that you will want to return once you’ve been here.
This stylish hip cafe can be found a few minutes walk from the main bus station. It is actually located in the Wustenrot building (therefore the name W Cafe), on the intersection of Grosslingova, Karadzicova Street and Dostojevskeho rad.
WHY IS W CAFE SPECIAL?
The owners are two young guys who except for running their own business also study garden architecture at a university. Since their field of study is quite close to the design, they have created the whole concept by themselves. They had only one month from signing the contract for the premises until the official opening. They still continue to upgrade the place and are known for drastically changing the interior every few months. Don’t be surprised if you happen to see more tree branches hanging here and there;)
WHAT TO HAVE IN W CAFE?
The menu includes German lemonades Fritz, Lov Organic teas, Slovak wines as well as excellent cakes and also a breakfast menu! The place is open from 7:30 am and on working days only. The eating options are not wide but rather tasty. We have tried their breakfast offer of sausages with cheeses and vegetables and a raw coconut and wild berries cake, and really enjoyed both.
If you like croissants, you have can choose one with a chocolate or marmelade filling. The healthy food fans will be able to enjoy a bowl of Greek yogurt with chia seeds.
For lunch, we tried some of their seasonal snacks.
We tasted their cafe latte (delicious), hot chocolate (thick and splendid) and also a Slovak rose wine (simply excellent).
They often come up with some specials. For example, these creative hot drinks were fun to try – Natalis Sensation (consisting of Slovak liqueur Bentianna, rum rebellion, cinnamon and apple juice – very tasty and very strong:D) and a mix of red hot wine with orange juice (quite sweet and fragrant). If you want to try something different, go for the Espresso & tonic. Their fruit lemonades are also worth of trying.
The premises can be also rented out for different events such press conferences or business breakfasts. We can only recommend this place – not only food but the service was excellent as well – very friendly and welcoming.
The second branch was opened in September 2018 at the popular local market Mileticka.
