Discover these popular hipster-hangs next time you’re travelling in Europe…


Café Neustadt, Prague

Unanimously great coffee. Hidden location. Great wifi. Lots of wood finishes with gorgeous pops of turquoise.

Karlovo nám. 23/1, Prague


C.T. – Coffee & Coconuts, Amsterdam

The tastiest breakfast with a cozy, industrial and hella spacious interior.

Ceintuurbaan 282-284, Amsterdam


Man versus Machine Coffee Roasters, Munich

Not only is this the place to find one of Munich’s favourite cups of coffee, but you can actually buy beans to go or even order them online as well.

It’s a small café with a simple white aesthetic, but what it lacks in space or décor is more than made up for with quality.

Adalbertstraße 10, Munich


Look Mum No Hands!, London

Cycling enthusiasts can conveniently get their brunch on while picking up some spare parts, and non-cyclers flock here for the food and coffee, regardless of the cramped and busy interior.

It’s quirky and usually crowded, but the food makes it all worth it.

49 Old Street, London


Satan’s Coffee Corner, Barcelona

Great flat whites and cold brews, but as their menu says “No decaf, no bullsh*t, no vanilla, no wifi, no fun for children”.

It’s a bit tricky to find, but so are most things that are worthwhile, right?

Carrer de l’Arc de Sant Ramon del Call, Barcelona


Brother Hubbard, Dublin

That food though? A lil Mediterranean twist on the usual brunch, served on wood tables with great coffee AND hot chocolate.

153 Capel St, Dublin


Ditta Artigianale, Florence

Check this place out for Italian coffee done right, plus a Croque Madame on the side to knock your socks off too.

And did we mention it’s a gin bar as well? Two birds and all that…

Via dei Neri, 32/R, Florence


Fekete, Budapest

Badass brownies and really really good coffee. It’s a white and wood hipster paradise.

Múzeum krt. 5, Budapest


Café Dyrehaven, Copenhagen

Everything with avocado is a hit, and the cozy pub atmosphere will have you setting up camp with your laptop for the whole afternoon.

Sønder Boulevard 72, Copenhagen


Mein Haus am See, Berlin

As vintage as it gets and open 24/7, so you can go right from coffees in the afternoon to drinks and live music all night long.

Brunnenstr 197-198, Berlin

Insider knowledge to all the local hangouts and secret spots – that’s a taste of Contiki Know-How.
