Luster’s atmosphere and its size of a proper living room perfectly fit the need for some laid back time out, be it to read a book or to have a coffee/drink while daydreaming or in a company. The staff is so friendly that you might think of them as your roommates or family members.
My favourite time to come here is on Sunday afternoon because of the relaxed vibe and the feeling that I’m at home on my couch being the real me. The workdays are quite cheerful and lively, considering how joyful people are during their coffee break or an after-work drink. The certain possibility of getting driven into the conversation with other guests and maybe even develop new friendships here is highly present, as the small places tend to have this ability to inspire such moments.
The part of Sarajevo where this hidden gem is located is not even close to the crowded and noisy city centre where everything and everyone is spinning in a busy, fast pace. Somewhat quiet but yet energetic in its own kind of way, this area is loved by its residents for being free of the fast-growing new construction but also for having a fine ratio of buildings to parks and green surfaces.
I used to work in this neighbourhood for a while and consider myself lucky to have had the opportunity to observe its daily routine and to discover Luster in its casual and cosy ambience.
