6 places with good coffee in Downtown Sibiu
There are so many cosy places in The Big and Small Square that allow you to admire the city through their big windows! But only a few of them have great, carefully crafted coffee and you might not find them without a local's help!
We've intensively tested the cafes from downtown Sibiu, so that you will be able to always have the right answer when somebody asks you: "So... where do we get some good coffee around here?" :).
The Small Square is packed with cafes and restaurants and you might think Nod is just one of many. In fact, although quite tiny, it's a place almost every local loves and visits regularly - their smooth-and-silky latte, great craft beer and good quality wines are just a few of the things you will appreciate here. They are dog-friendly, often host events and have one of the nicest views of the Square!

Just a few meters away from the Big Square, there is a place more "pour les connaisseurs". Each day they serve coffee from a specific country, or you can try their own blend - enjoy it on the spot or To Go. If you fall in love with a certain aroma, you can buy coffee and take it home, and they'll grind it for you on the spot! Do try some of their sweets and other local products!
SIBIO is the place that makes you feel welcomed in any circumstance, whoever you are and wherever you are from. You have so many options to get energised here: a green, freshly squeezed smoothie, a ginger and pepper shot, or a good quality, certified origin coffee. They are really passionate about coffee brewing techniques, so you will be able to choose both the blend and the brewing method. Their coffee is served only with non-dairy milk, but this is just a good opportunity for you to try something new, as they have a very wide range of milk varieties you can choose from!
A vivid and joyful place that serves not only great quality coffee but also a wide range of healthy smoothies. You can order only at the bar, but that shouldn't be a problem because this way you get to meet their friendly staff, very well trained in the art of brewing. This is a place where you'll get your energy every day, in a different way - it takes a long long time for you to try their whole menu!
If you've ever visited a typical coffeehouse in Vienna, you'll be amazed with the resemblance - the furniture, the atmosphere, the menu, even the music make you feel like you're in the Austrian capital! The place has such an authentic feel, and very frequently you'll find a piano or violin concert too! In the summer, they have 3 terraces, each with a different, beautiful view of the old city.
Hug The Mug
There is this small Sibiu business that every local loves - it's called Hug the Mug and you'll find it on the main pedestrian road - Nicolae Bălcescu street. It's a place where you just grab a cup of good quality coffee and go to your daily businesses. Also, a place where you'll find the hip teenager girls instagramming their spiced lattes! :)
