A Non-Conservative List of Trendy Coffee Shops  

Nowadays, when almost every job can be done only with a computer, it became a norm or even a trend to work from a coffee shop. If you are a customer, I think you already hate those freelancers for taking up so much space with only a single cup of coffee. But you know it’s hard to focus at home and it’s cheaper to get a cup for 2 euros a day than an office for 200 euros a month. Of course, everybody would love to work from Bali, Bangkok or some other exotic places in South Asia but those workations cost a fortune, so you cannot stay there forever. Plus, everybody knows that you can get used to all the perks there really fast.

Believe me, it’s not an easy mission to find cocktails in a coconut here in Europe but you can find a lot of cosy and beautiful places to get a cup of coffee. So here comes a list of trendy coffee shops in the Baltic States, Stockholm, Berlin, and Warsaw.

Vilnius:

Raštinė

It’s a beautiful, Japanese kind of design place in the centre of Vilnius. In addition to the good coffee there, you can also find nice accessories for your office or daily stationary supplies. Moreover, It has really friendly staff there! As well as WI-FI.

Cofmos

Pink floor, black ceiling, and mirrors all over the walls are the things you notice at first. Then: coffee and its alternatives (OMG I guess this place has one of the biggest menus for them). Matcha, beetroot latte, ashwagandha, turmeric, cacao. And hey, vegans! It’s a vegan cafe, so a lot of deserts and other dishes are without any animal products.

Riga:

Rocket bean

I don’t know if you’ve ever seen that many Edison type of lamps, but it makes the place to look cosy as hell. You can find a coffee shop, restaurant, and roastery all under the same roof. It’s a perfect place to have breakfast with some nice coffee or dinner with a glass of wine.

Miit

People from Riga describe this place as one of the best and it’s always important to trust the locals. Vegans and vegetarians won’t be disappointed because they have lots of things for them in the menu. They organize brunch every Saturday and Sunday, so don’t forget to go there not only to work but to eat as well.

Tallinn:

Rost pagar

One word - deserts. OMG if you’re on a diet - go there to check your limits. If you will survive without getting one, you can be proud of yourself. It has some solo spaces as well, so I guess you won’t be bothered if you will be sitting there for a whole day.

Fika Leib ja kohv

It’s not the biggest coffee shop you’ve ever seen, nor the brightest one but it might be the cosiest. Coffee is insane and those avocado toasts are soooooo pretty.

Stockholm:

Drop coffee

Minty white design makes this place to stand out in the Stockholm coffee shops scene. Moreover, it has a perfect coffee and good food for you to enjoy as you’ll be working there for hours. From our experience there can be a bit of waiting to get a cup of coffee: baristas put a lot of effort and time to transform every single cup of coffee into perfection.

Café Pascal

They have a lot of single seats. I mean, A LOT. So if you’re thinking to go there only to work it might be the best spot for you in Stockholm. And of course, people say that coffee and food there is amazing. If you want to get in there on weekends it can be a struggle. People are actually standing in line to get a seat there.

Berlin:

Five Elephants

Minimalism must be the perfect word to describe Five Elephants coffee shop. You won’t see any coffee machine there because it’s hidden under the bar. It’s kind of a small place, so if you’ll be there for a whole day you’re going to be noticed.

Barn

The name describes the interior. As you enter the old pharmacy building the first thing you notice is the smell of coffee roasting and the silence. Then you see bags full of coffee that makes you feel like you’re in a barn. They’ve banned music there, so don’t forget your headphones. Don’t be angry if they will kick you out: they’ve banned baby strollers, so it’s just a matter of time when they will ban freelancers ;) It’s not going to be your regular coffee in the morning, it will be an experience.

Warsaw:

Filtry Dobra Kava

Good Filtered Coffee: that’s the name of this coffee shop. To be exact, the name should be Wonderful Filtered Coffee. Small, cosy place for you to enjoy a cup of coffee or a day with a laptop. If you have a dog and want to make it famous, take it with you: their IG account is full of customers’ dogs photos.

Relaks

Nice place in the centre of Warsaw. Its walls are covered with artworks, so it makes the place look like a gallery. They have a really awesome coffee there and a lot of places for you to sit. Good cakes as well.
