So I have a caffeine-addiction, but that’s not the only reason why I visit coffee bars. I also like the cosiness of some places, the people who are working behind the espresso machine, the food they serve, etc.
Let me take you on my personal coffee-tour and explain you why I like all these places, besides from their excellent coffee of course.
Caffenation is the perfect ‘early-morning’-coffee-place. They (we) open at 8.30 and it’s the ideal place to just have a quick espresso or cappuccino at the bar before you start your day. You can also find a more quiet place for you and your laptop and make this coffee bar your office for the day.
One of the biggest assets is probably the terrace where you can enjoy the early-morning-sun from 8.30 until 13h.
If you want more sun & coffee you should go to Broer Bretel. In the summer you can enjoy the sun at their terrace from 12 until closing time! The neighborhood is less busy than the centre of Antwerp so it’s the ideal escape from the city.
Oh and while you’re here, you might as well taste one of the delicious blueberry muffins made by BBQ-legend Big Pappa Joe.
Another more quiet place to go is Kolonel Koffie. Barista Kobe is always in for a chat and his girlfriend makes the BEST muffins ever! Sometimes I don’t even go there for a coffee, i just read the newspaper and have myself a chocolate-coco-muffin.
If you like shopping AND coffee you should go to Sussies where they have a nice selection of second-hand clothing. After your purchase you can have a coffee in their cosy living room.
If you like shopping and coffee but you have no time to waste you can get a take-away coffee at Snackbar Koffie (Hopland).
Where I also like to go is Normo. Their coffee is tasty and fresh. And so are the baristas ;).
There are many other coffee bars in Antwerp. But these are the ones I visit the most.
So I guess I will see you around sippin’ on coffee?
