Unfortunately, there are not so many good places that are not in city center in Minsk. But things are changing, and Varka Coffee is a small but really nice coffee spot located near to non-cental Sportivnaya metro station. In an area with somewhat cheaper AirBnB’s, of course!
When I come here I usually take Raf Coffee with gingerbread cookie topping. All the baristas are keeping a close eye on details. So Raf here has a really creamy texture – as it should have. And the gingerbread cookie flavour compliments it in a really good way.
Also, I suggest you take a pistachio croissant. It is really tasty and made by a local Minsk bakery called LEN.
And yeah, the place is really dog-friendly. So there’s a huge chance you will meet a friendly corgi named Vegas during your visit. Give him a pet!
