Where to drink the best coffee in Wroclaw – chapter one

best coffee in Wroclaw

My little coffee-journey in Wroclaw started at Café Targowa and ETNO. I will show you step by step not only where to drink the best coffee in Wroclaw, but also how to drink it. Coffee is not only an aromatic hot drink in a cup. It means culture, making new friends or meeting your colleagues and gives you time and calmness just for you.

Cafe Targowa in Halla Targowa

  • price for a flat white 8,00 zl.

It is:

  • a little hidden coffee-cosmos
  • a good opportunity meeting new people

They offer:

  • a huge range of well-considered coffee-equipment
  • daily fresh home-made cakes
  • coffee- workshops starting again from January
  •  qualitative tea

Coffee preparation:

  • Filtered (aeropress, chemex, handfiltered)
  • Cold filtered
  • French

News:

  • new coffee bar will open in 2018

My journey started uninspected in Hala Targowa

Finally a friend of mine from Berlin visited me in Wroclaw for three days. For me the best reason going out for drinks, lunch and coffee! Of course my polish kindness forced me to go with him everywhere, show him everything and also put every traditional polish dish, desert, candies and drinks in his mouth.

Rather  both of us are huge fans of traditional flew markets and market halls, where you can buy a lot of different trash and indeed little things you can drop in your mouth and are making you fat. After class I finally invited him to “Hala Targowa”, for groceries shopping and some home-cooked lunch. The hall was colorful filled with fruits, vegetables, flowers, candies…a little (expensive) food paradise with polish and also international products.

Find the little coffee bar next to “Ksero”

After we had lunch my body screamed for a coffee. And there it was! My coffee-radar led me directly to the other side of the hall, to the teeny wooden  bar called “Cafe Targowa” near “Ksero”.

It seems a bit rath and ready.  I counted five stools in front, where three people already chatted with the barista. When people are asking you, where to drink the best coffee in Wroclaw – right here! I had a really balanced flat-white. Aromatic strong espresso roast, full-bodied with lightly flavor of chocolate.  On top, a well done (not overheated!) perfect cream – you will love it.

Focused on Coffee

That´s how you drink here: A microscopic bar, enough space for one dimpled, diminutive blonde barista and five guest in front of it. But don’t worry. If you haven´t found a seat, in the market hall are tables placed too.

For sure you will find here a perfectly prepared cup of coffee in Wroclaw, if espresso, hand-or chemex filtered, french- or aeropress preparation.  Furthermore you can buy a piece of their daily home-made cake, coffee-beans, grounded coffee and well-chosen equipment for any way of preparation. From a golden aero-press or filter to their own merchandise products – this place is the answer for where to drink the best coffee in Wroclaw as well as where to buy a useful and approved gift.

The atmosphere and service

Furthermore what I love about this coffe-cosmos in Targowa Hall is the chatty atmosphere. The small place induces to conversation with all guests and the barista.

In opposite to other coffee places, while drinking my flat-white the barista told me about their new plans creating their own coffee blend and also organizing workshops from Janauary again. The workshops will include everything what a coffee lover wants to know: What kind of coffee beans they use, how to choose blends, what to blend  and different coffee-preparation as well.

My conclusion for Cafe Targowa

Probably small chatty places are not everyone´s cup of tea, but I appreciate it.  Mostly smartphone interrupt our deeper communication, indeed this is our society we live in. Still you can find treasures like Café Targowa, where people understand that drinking coffee means to drink it in a pleasant company- that’s one of the best coffee in Wroclaw.

For people on the way to the central train- or busstation

Before I entered the bus to Berlin, I wanted to work on my papers with a great cup of coffee in my hand and may have some warm late breakfast. ENTO Wroclaw 101 was on the way to the central bus station. Indead, a good located place for people who are in rush or have the need not to work in the office for a while.

A tasty shakshuka and flavourful flat white – I can highly recommend!

Best coffee in Wroclaw

Due to my hangover I needed something warm and healthy to repair my wodka-damaged body. For sure after a red beet shakshuka and a flatwihte i didn´t have to suffer long.

Finally my flat white was served plainly in a glas. A strong, full bodied taste with a lightly dark chocolate-hazelnut flavor. After only five minutes my shakshuka was brought to me. It was served nicely on a hot steel pan with fresh flatbread. A well balanced dish, which I really enjoyed.  Of course, before drawing final conclusions about the best coffee in Wroclaw, it is appropriate to attend the four ETNO cafe´s. 

My conclusion: Looks like a coworking space, but is not made for business-meetings

Sadly, the wifi-hasn´t worked, which is a big disadvantage for workaholics! I never understood locations, which are looking like big coworking spaces, but aren´t exactly. So, if a nice and well-known coffee is situated in the middle of an office area, why is there any internet connection? Aren´t they interested on running their business?!

Sure, on the one hand I am looking for the best coffee in Wroclaw, but on the other hand, if I would look for a place where one can feel at ease, I would prefere small cute café´s like Cocofli or Café Targowa instead of ENTO.
