Once, Rezo Gabriadze said that he wanted to open a theatre cafe “not so people could eat, but so that one single coffee bean could be roasted all day long, filling the theater with its aroma”.
So, in 1996, Cafe Gabriadze was opened next to Gabriadze Theatre, “putting all the missing pieces into place”. The cafe is the same age as my sister, making it one of the oldest cafes in Tbilisi.
If you’ve already read the article about Gabriadze Theatre; needless to say all the ideas, decorations and details belong to Rezo itself. Even the tables and chairs have been hand-painted by him to show scenes and quotes from his movies and plays.
The inside rooms and the summer terrace make it a comfortable place to visit all year round.
It can be a little bit more expensive than other places, but the location, the view, the atmosphere, all-in-all the concept and extremely delicious food make it a perfect place for breakfast, brunch and dinner while experiencing the artistic side of Tbilisi.
