Café Babalú


Coffee shops

Café Babalú is the quintessential bohemian artist/student café. They have comfortable couches to sit and chat, read or draw, as well as a house guitar, books, boardgames and cards for anyone to play. The place has plenty of seating on two floors and a spacious balcony with a beautiful view for summer days or die-hard wintertime smokers. It is usually populated by students, expats, artists, hippies and other relaxed, friendly people.

Their menu focuses on coffee and light bites like sandwhiches, crepes, cakes and soups but they also offer lasagna, beer and wine. The decor is 'living room' style, with bright colours, cozy couches, blankets and quirky knick-knacks on the walls.
