On our way out of Warsaw we stopped at a great café called Ministry of Coffee.
Best Coffee in Warsaw, Poland
To find coffee in cities I am unfamiliar with, I start by googling for “third wave” coffee and go from there. This place popped up and wasn’t far from our hotel, though not within walking distance. We decided to stop for coffee and a pastry on our way to Warsaw.
It was a cold and dreary day, perfect for coffee.
Ministry of Coffee
00-639 Warsaw, Poland
+48 503 080 906
8:00am – 9:00pm (daily)
Typically a coffee shop open until 9:00pm is a warning sign. In my experience, the best coffee shops usually close at 3-4pm. But this was an excellent coffee shop and well worth the pain of trying to find a parking spot with our oversized Vovlo XC90 (parking can be a challenge in Warsaw even with a small car).
The coffee shop is located in the Śródmieście district of Warsaw, right next to a towering Roman Catholic Church called Kościół Najświętszego Zbawiciela (Church of the Holiest Saviour).
I loved how packed the café was and everyone seemed so cheerful (it was a Saturday…). Really, I just love the European coffee culture which is only slowly catching on in the USA.
I ordered a flat white with croissant and my friend had a latte with danish. Yum. The coffee was strong and the milk perfectly blended. The croissant was flaky and I tried a piece of the danish and found it superb.
The coffee and sweet treats fueled us all afternoon as we drove down to Krakow.
My coffee posts are never meant to be exhaustive, but posts from which I hope to build upon as I return to a place. I will certainly return to this coffee shop, but I always welcome your recommendations for other great coffee in Warsaw.
