Located outside of the city centre, a hop from the nearest tram stop, this cosy cafe is a secret gem in the neighbourhood. Dobrodruh looks like an oasis in the concrete desert, where you can sip tea or coffee while preparing your next expedition. There is Wi-Fi and enough sockets for everyone.
This place seeps with holiday mood and faraway lands: props from expeditions, a large map of South America on the wall, travel guides on the bookshelves (including Antarctica), photo books, coffee bean bags hanging from the ceiling and their own t-shirts for fans. It’s dedicated to travellers and if you are not one yet, surely this is the place to get in the mood.
Their menu will make you travel with their specialty coffee from all over the world. Don’t hesitate to ask the helpful staff for recommendations, I really liked the Colombian kind. There’s also local wine, beer from small breweries (Stupavar, Jam) and a wide selection of tea. Small snacks go well with all sorts of drinks – yummy cakes or marinated cheese, prepared locally.
The passion for travelling is present almost daily with photo or video presentations by real adventurers, so make sure check their Facebook page beforehand as it can get quite busy on those nights.
Check the notice board with messages from fellow travellers who buy or sell something travel related or who are looking for a travel mate – you see, Dobrodruh doesn’t only mean adventurer, it literally means a good mate.
