Downtown Café & Food
Why locals love it
This new hotspot is a magnet for the creative crowd, hipsters and freelancers. During the day you can see people with laptops having coffee/tea or chatting over breakfast/lunch. In the evening the place becomes very animated as people flock here after work. They host cultural events and sell carefully curated goods like bikes and design socks.
Why you should visit it
Impressive choice of European quality beers. Try Zăganu a local craft beer and the popular hamburger with chips. They also serve salads and vegetarian dishes for more health-conscious people. The perfect stop for a porridge, coffee and emails in the morning or for evening drinks in a everybody-knows-everybody atmosphere.
I don’t know how many places in Bucharest can boast having a Star Wars pinball machine, but A1 is definitely one of them.
