Near Cișmigiu Garden, in central Bucharest, you can find a really special coffee shop, called Beans & Dots. The building that hosts this spot used to be the editorial office of the newspaper Universul, during the first part of the 20th century. Today, Beans & Dots brings together students, freelancers, artists and people from the neighborhood, all looking for a good cup of coffee, some fresh snacks and a nice talk.
I love having my lazy morning coffee here on weekends and then paying a little visit to the Humanitas bookstore, which is nearby.
Also, it is one of the few places in Bucharest where you can drink specialty coffee after 6 PM – most of them close earlier. During summer, they have a different menu with delicious cold brews, and they open the terrace. No matter what season it is, I recommend this place if you are looking for tasty coffee and an urban-industrial place with a contemporary vibe.
This November Beans & Dots have opened a second place, at One Herăstrău Plaza, Sos. Pipera 4, where you can have breakfast and coffee all day long.
