Lviv is a city with its special flair, traditions and pace of life. For Lviv citizens, coffee means more than just a beverage. It is a lifestyle and a form of freedom. The phrase “let’s go for coffee” can have numerous meanings varying from a rendezvous to a business meeting. That’s why cafés and summer patios are of particular importance for Lviv citizens.
We have made a list of summer patios and terraces where you can have a coffee and tasty dinner safely.
This is a traditional place for Lviv citizens. This season’s speciality is the Bagel, also known as “beigel”. Few people know that bagel is a Galician dish. It was first documented in a laws compilation of the Jewish community of Kraków in 1696 (according to other sources it was even earlier – in 1610). Later on, the bagels together with European migrants reached America, and there they turned into this famous dish we all know now. Let’s go back to the well :)
You can also drink coffee brewed in a cezve, either traditional or with adding lime or even pine cones. This is the coffee which has always been traditional in Lviv, ever since it appeared here. This has been the only way to brew it; it is both a kind of a ritual and time for yourself.
It was so in the past. It is so at present. Hopefully, it will be so in the future.
An open terrace on the building roof located on 14 Rynok Square. There is unique atmosphere and view; you can sit on the terrace even when it’s raining because there are special spheres. The restaurant has no menu. The orders are taken by the cooks; they cook everything you want.
