Bandit Specialty Coffee

With a minimal design, a casual vibe and some damn fine coffee, Bandit is the hidden gem you’ll be happy to stop at after strolling in the famous Cismigiu Park. Specialty coffee is their thing, but they also have nice music, a friendly barista and a pretty Instagrammable neon logo sign. We recommend you to try their creamy flat white or the double espresso, and don’t forget to bring your friends with you. You may also find at Bandit the perfect gift for your coffee-loving friends, as they also sell high-quality beans!


This small cafe situated just a few steps away from the Old Town is a very popular place when it comes to speciality coffee in Bucharest. With extremely helpful and knowledgeable baristas and a young and hip atmosphere, this is the ideal coffee stop after a walk in the city center. The place works as a coffee shop during the day and a cocktail bar after 8 PM and serves both high-quality coffee and amazing drinks. If you’re in the area and you can’t find a spot at a table, a coffee to go is definitely worth it!
