Zissou Coffee Shop is probably the smallest coffee shop in Bucharest, but it gathers big-hearted people. Robert, the barista of Zissou, not only makes great specially coffee, but he also brings a smile on your face by wishing you the best when you start your day. On my way to the office, I see people who live or work in Cotroceni neighborhood coming almost every morning to enjoy coffee from Zissou. One might even find a bowl of water left under the bench for the dog of a frequent client.
Don’t hesitate to drink your coffee there instead of taking it away, because, even if the place is small, there is “great room” for interesting talks with Robert and the other clients.
On winters and autumn, I recommend you try not only the coffee specialties, but also the chai latte. Its spicy flavour reminds me of Christmas sweets. You can also try the cookies or the cake (I have tried the lemon cake and chocolate cake) together with your favourite drink.
