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.
C.T. – Coffee & Coconuts, Amsterdam
The tastiest breakfast with a cozy, industrial and hella spacious interior.
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.
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.
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?
Brother Hubbard, Dublin
That food though? A lil Mediterranean twist on the usual brunch, served on wood tables with great coffee AND hot chocolate.
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…
Badass brownies and really really good coffee. It’s a white and wood hipster paradise.
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.
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.
Insider knowledge to all the local hangouts and secret spots – that’s a taste of Contiki Know-How.
