Here people just love their coffee and they drink a lot of it, so the tradition is very long. So be sure – you won’t be left without excellent coffee in Belgrade. The city is full of cafeterias serving specialty coffee, from those that have by now already become small chains, such as Kafeterija, Koffein, Café & Factory, CoffeeDream and even the great mainstream Starbucks franchise, all the way to small neighborhood cafés where you can enjoy a cup of fantastic coffee, or have it on the go.  We have compiled for you a short list of small cafeterias that roast, grind and finally prepare top-quality coffee.

This is primarily takeaway coffee spot, or place where you drink your beverages quickly, since it has no seating arrangements, except for two bar stools. 


One of the first cafeterias in the city is located in Kralja Petra Street, in the vicinity of Crna ovca gelateria. Here you can count on relaxed atmosphere, the smell of the coffee beans being roasted on the spot, and some local crowd.
