Grand Café Van Gogh

This popular café situated in the Old Town is definitely a must-see, especially if you’re an art lover! The theme of the café is, as its name suggests, no other than the post-impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh. Situated in a nice building, this cafe is uniquely decorated with Van Gogh paintings on every wall and lots of Van Gogh inspired umbrellas hanged upside down from the ceiling, the attention to detail being spot on. The colorful interior together with the diversified menu make this place a perfect choice for breakfast, brunch and dinner. If you visit this place, we strongly recommend their pancakes and the amazing quesadillas everyone talks about!

Cereal Crunch Café

This café is the dream of every cereal lover and a favorite among kids, as it serves more than 100 types of cereals, accompanied by over 17 toppings and 17 types of milk (flavored and colored). The breakfast cereal you will find here will definitely remind you of your childhood and the small cozy space it’s sure to make you feel like home. If food photography is your thing, this cereal bowl will definitely end up on your Instagram feed!


The first cat café in Bucharest, Miau is the perfect spot if you want to relax while enjoying a good lemonade or tea with your friends. Home to ten adorable cats and two very sociable dogs, Miau also has a small library with all kinds of books, some good board games and a very lovely terrace where you can hang out when it’s warm outside. The cats are rescues and most of them are very playful, so be prepared to smile a lot while being here. The café is also a hub for cat adoption in Bucharest and the staff is extremely nice, which is always a nice plus. If you’re a cat lover, make sure not to miss this cafe!
