New to Poznan and want a great coffee? I’ve spent months checking out the best cafes in Poznan. Let me give you an overview of the top specialty coffee shops in Poznan.

In The Old Town
MIEL is the most ‘specialty’ of the cafes in the old town. It’s your typical minimalistic cafe serving great coffee beans by Five Elephants and a range of tasty cakes.
MIEL offers quite a good amount of seating and a good internet connection, thus it’s one of the better places to work from.
Overall, I’d say MIEL is the best of the specialty coffee shops in Poznan.

This lovely unpretentious specialty cafe in Poznan is great for grabbing a tasty coffee and getting some work done. Food is also correct, in fact here you’ll find some excellent bagels and toasts.
Additionally, here you’ll find a selection of high-quality coffee beans roasted in-house by Craft Coffee (which seems to source filter beans exclusively from Nordic Approach), as well as by other nice Polish roasters such as Heresy.
This local coffee roaster/cafe offers a spacious seating area and an in-premise roasting experience.
Admittedly the coffee quality may be a bit less than perfect, yet the service is nice and the cakes are also good.
As a fun fact, Kahawa offered coffee beans from Cameroon, which is one of the least common African origins for arabica coffee.
Piece of CakePiece of Cake
Leafy green cafe just north of the Old Town, and very close to Bardzo.
This place is best known for its sweet treats! Pistachio croissants are our favorite!
You’ll find great beans by the likes of Hayb, Gardelli, or Casino Mocca (the owner’s favorite roasters).
While not my favorite, this place is also a nice cafe, with decent food in the old town and also very close to Piece of Cake.
However, it may get slightly full, baristas are a bit clumsy, and not all of them are well-versed in coffee.
It boasts a beautiful inner backyard and nice coffee beans from international roasters such as Prolog.
Mówish Mash Specialty CoffeeMówish Mash Specialty Coffee
My favorite cafe in Poznan, with delicious brews (Hayb, 19grams, Rum Baba, and more), lovely baristas, and exotic plants.
You can also grab brunch and cakes, and overall prices are fair, with batch brew at 10 PLN and flat whites at 13PLN.
This coffee shop is located in the Jeżyce district, not far from the central train and bus station but a decent walk from the old town.
