I went to Kaffa with a local person. My hotel was just 100 meters from Kaffa, but I didn't know the place, because it's situated behind the street. The coffee was lovely, and they have a big menu card to select from. The sweets is delicious to.

A slightly left field place to look at but the coffee is excellent with many origins to choose from. If you like to experiment with coffee flavours this is the place!!

Hands-down the best coffee in Kiev. Its hard to find, but it is extremely central and on a cul-de-sac. Seating outside available and inside as well. The inside is really very pretty, albeit its not a large place.

If you want try the best coffee in town its not necessary to go far away only some steps from Maidan you will find a hidden place from which the Kiev people only say Cafe Giraf. There you can try in quiet athmosphere some delicious coffees and some self made cake.Try it its worth!

One of the best places in Kiev, where you can taste amazing real coffee. There are a huge variety of different sorts of coffee from all world. And the good thing that you can buy it in beans "to go".

Great coffee to be had here, the choice of beans in bewildering! The sub-Saharan Africa theme is also excellent and the whole place is tastefully decorated. The sweet pastries here though are mediocre, also the place is a little tricky to find off the Main Street. Good coffee in a trendy setting, that's it.

This is an interesting coffee house with rather unique decor. It offers a wide selection of coffees from around the world that you don't usually find in Kiev. Coffee is its speciality although it offers a few dessert choices and pastries. It is rather difficult to find as you have to look off the street and there is not much... More

Caffa is rather an old cafe for Kiev. It has a great location and never crouded with tourists - it's located on one of the back streets from Maidan and it's better to remember the address before coming here. They roast coffee beans themselves, so it's always fresh for you. Coffee with cardamon and other spices - is my favourite... More
