Why locals love it

It's a cozy place with a nice interior. The crowd is a bit "hipsterish" and the choices of tea is abysmal (and is mainly hot water with a tea bag. It does have a lovely atmosphere and a high quality Chaqwa coffee.

Why you should visit it

The overall atmosphere in the place takes you to another time and space. It's calm, comfy and cuddly. The staff is friendly and they make a mean hot cocoa. It's kind of like being in a vintage cabin. Great place for tired travelers to unwind.

Special tip

They themselves proclaim to have the best Irish coffee in town, but haven't tried that myself.

If you are like me, and just want a regular cup of coffee, free WiFi and a quiet place to work on your assignments and projects, then Stofan is your place. The refill on the regular coffee is essential in this example, and also the cosy sofas and chairs. The café itself has a nice rustic and antique interior design, the wood floor is original and probably over 80 years old. With a friend or all by yourself, it's the perfect hangout place.

I really like this place. It has a cosy atmoshphere. If you buy a regular coffee it has a refill, which comes in handy for student like me. It has a free WiFi and if you need a place to work for a couple of hours, there is a room in Stofan where you can close the doors and really concentrate on your work.
