It’s hard to assert that in Ukraine we have an old tradition to start the day with a cup of coffee. Despite the tons of offers it’s often a problem to find a place with truly delicious coffee in Kiev.
Fortunately, for those whose path runs through the city center during the day, this problem is now no longer unsolvable. The hosts of “Chashka Espresso bar” have shouldered the burden to prepare the best coffee in town. And yet they cope with this mission with honor. The creation of this place was inspired by the spirit of New York. And it can be seen in the interior design and menu. On a shelf on the wall inside you can see a huge collection of coffee cups (“chashka” is “cup” in English) from cafes and bars from around the world.
You can go here for breakfast (scrambled eggs or oatmeal) and the simple cup of espresso in the morning. And if you take a day walk through the city center, be sure to take the wonderful latte to go.
There is not much offered as a food menu, but if you are hungry, feel free to eat here. Salads, soups and sandwiches with self-baked ciabatta are always on menu.
Sometimes “Chashka” is used as a pre-party place and on summer evenings DJs play on the outdoor terrace, and people order drinks stronger than coffee. Nice craft beer for example.
