Vilnius is a lovely city perfect for a weekend trip or a year off. Highly green, Vilnius is very pleasant to walk around and drink some great coffee. Let’s talk about the best specialty coffee shops in Vilnius.
Vilnius is the lovely capital of Lithuania, a small very green country located on the Baltic coast nest to Russia, Belarus, Poland, and Latvia.
A student town, Vilnius boasts a magnificent Baroque old town and vibrant young student community.
There are a few nice specialty coffee shops in Vilnius. Here is a list of my favorites!
Specialty Coffee Shops In Vilnius
Most coffee shops are located in the city center and are located within a 10-minute walk from Cathedral Square.
Huracan CoffeeHuracan Coffee
Huracan Coffee is one of the best third-wave specialty coffee shops in the Baltics, and certainly the best coffee shop in Vilnius.
With a few locations in the old town, this is a memorable cafe and thus our first recommendation.
Huracan Coffee roasts and sells high-quality and even competition-grade coffee beans, so don’t miss the chance to stock up on some fantastic coffees.
Coffee prices start at around 2-2.50 EUR.
Elska Coffee is probably my favorite coffee shop in Vilnius. This cafe has a very nice vibe and the location is really bright and full of natural light during the day, great for a work power session. Tasty brunch is served here too.
Not a third-wave coffee shop, but more of a cozy cafe where people come to have a chat or work on their master thesis or freelance project.
Elska brews Andrito coffee, from the eponymous coffee roaster from Riga (Latvia). Espresso is 2EUR and hand brew is about 3.5EUR.
Caffeine (previously known as Coffee Inn) is a chain of coffee shops popular in the Baltic region with tens of locations and where you can expect to find the classics: Ethiopia, Colombia, Guatemala, Costa Rica, etc.
Popular among students and tourists, it’s not a place with a following but rather a safe bet if you just need your after-lunch coffee.
Coffee drinks are usually around 2-2.50 EUR and they use their own beans.
Hungry? Do You Like Burgers?
If you get hungry afterward and want to grab a burger, you’ll find the absolute best burgers in town at Drama Burger.
Alternatively, I’d recommend Boom Burgers, right next to the KFC in the very center.
Maybe A Glass Of Wine?
If you also like wine – then I have to recommend the lovely In Vino, a casual-style wine bar with decent tapas-style food, located in the old town near the city gates. Daily new wines by the glass.
What else in Lithuania?
Kaunas is a lovely city with a charming old town, but my favorite place in Lithuania is Nida – a coastal town in the Curonian Split.
