I'm a coffee lover. The scent, the taste, the colour - simply perfect. In my hometown Bern there are a lot of wonderful coffees, which not only offer great coffee, but are also cosy and offer space for a little break. I would like to tell you something about my Top 10 of Bernese coffees.
By combining the city of Bern with coffee, we get directly to the Adrianos. The Adrianos is located in the city centre Bern, next to the Zytglogge. For over 20 years, it has not only convinced with its exceptionally good coffee, but also with its charm. The taste of the coffee sets Adrianos clearly apart from other coffees, because the coffee is not blended and roasted according to the standard taste. Employees buy the beans directly from the plantation. So they know exactly where the coffee comes from and what makes it special. You can feel this closeness and passion for coffee.
But coffee is not everything you can enjoy at Adrianos. There is a wide range of delicious sandwiches, small menus and "Berner-Plättli". In the evening the Adrianos is the perfect bar for a cosy get-together.
The Adrianos is for me a place to stay and enjoy time. In summer, the small and cosy terrace is a wonderful place for sunbathing, learning or just being. If you drink a delicious coffee, the situation is perfect.

Where once was a grocery store, today is a bar. The Colonial Bar is located in the centre of Bern, not far away from the Adrianos. In addition to the already mentioned, excellent Adrianos coffee, the bar sells beer and drinks from all over the world. In winter, the small but fine bar is a cosy place to stay. In summer you can enjoy the sun with a "Café Freddo" on the spacious outdoor seating.
A visit to the Colonial Bar has practically become part of my weekly program. In this cosy ambience surrounded by nice people and good coffee I like to spend my time. The terrace is suitable for learning and for a cosy get-together with my loved ones.

The Einstein Café & bel étage is located at the upper end of Bern's old town, in the former Einstein House. On two floors, the Einstein café offers various in-house coffee specialities, antipasti and delicious lunch menus. The café is rather inconspicuous, but cannot be overlooked. More and more tourists visit the Einstein House on their way through Bern to take some photos.
I visit the Einstein café not only to enjoy the in-house coffee, but also for lunch. The offers are delicious and the price-performance ratio excellent. The café is modern, cosy and charming.

As the name suggests, the coffee roasting plant roasts its own coffee at the coffee bar. The roasting plant's main location is near the freight station in Bern. The coffee presents itself modern in wood and in a simple furnishing style. The roasting plant has a large range of coffee machines, coffee accessories and the coffee beans themselves, which can be inspected and purchased at the same location. In addition to the generous seating facilities inside the coffee, there is also a large terrace outside for drinking coffee and relaxing.
Not only the excellent coffee, but also the wide range of coffee machines, own coffee blends and many other own products appeal to me. The roasting house is modernly furnished, which I like very much. I visit the roastery once a week either to enjoy a cup of coffee on the spot or to take one with me.

The Caffè Bar Sattler is located in the centre of the famous Längasse district of Bern. In the same building lies the well-known Gelateria die Berna. Its ideal location makes the Caffè Bar a meeting place for young and old, especially in summer. But it is not only outside that many people like to spend their time. The interior of the bar is also modern. The simple furnishing style is appealing and cosy.
I visit the Caffè Bar Sattler mostly in connection with the Gelateria di Berna. The combination of an extremely good ice cream and a Chai Latte in the Sattler is hard to beat. I find the interior as well as the tables on the terrace cosy and amusing.

Not far away from the Caffè Bar Sattler you can find the charming and cosy Apfelgold - furnished like a small living room with bookshelves and sofas. In addition to good coffee, smoothies and homemade drinks, the Apfelgold is known for its generous and delicious cake buffet. The coffee is very suitable inside and outside to spend time together or to read or work something for yourself.
Especially in summer I like to spend time on the terrace of the Apfelgold, with friends or alone. The atmosphere is very cosy and inviting. The offer of coffee, drinks and cake is unique and very delicious.

The wartsaal is located in the famous Lorraine district. In the wartsaal you can not only drink coffee, but also read exciting books, magazines and newspapers. In my opinion, the brunch is also unique and wonderfully delicious. Especially on weekends the wartsaal is suitable for having breakfast and spending time together.
The wartsaal not only offers many seats inside, but also has a spacious terrace with comfortable seating outside.
I have often visited the wartsaal for coffee or brunch. The breakfast is delicious and wonderfully prepared. The cosy atmosphere, the nice people and the tasty drinks and food let the time pass quickly.

As the name suggests, the Lehrerzimmer in Bern is reminiscent of the old times in the schoolroom. On the one hand because of the old tables and chairs and on the other hand because of the bookshelves. The coffee is located in the PROGR Cultural Centre Bern and is therefore the meeting point of many people. The simple furnishing style is cosy and the coffee is ideal for learning or working. But that's not all. Breakfast is also highly recommended. The visitor can arrange his breakfast individually. You can also enjoy delicious coffee, tea or a chai latte.
The Lehrerzimmer offers me a place where I can meet my loved ones and enjoy delicious coffee and even a delicious breakfast in between. It's not too big, cosy and reminiscent of the old days at school, which I always like to remember.

The Ô Capitaine in Bern's Breitenrain is small, but it immediately catches your eye as you pass by. Already the small and cosy garden terrace invites you to sit down and spend some time. The relatively small restaurant offers a large selection of culinary delicacies. It begins with a delicious Sunday brunch, continues with salads and many other lunch menus, and ends with delicious coffee and cake.
I like the Ô Capitaine not only because of its delicacies, but also because of the rustic furnishings that have been thought through down to the last detail. Both inside and outside there are only a few tables, but this makes it very private and cosy.

The Florian Caffè at Bern Central Station is the youngest of my Top 10 coffees. The rustic, cosy and large café is perfectly located and is ideal for working, reading or simply enjoying time. The Florian Caffè offers delicious meals, small lunch menus and many drinks, as well as Adrianos coffee.
In addition to its ideal location at Bern's main railway station, the Florian Caffè is very cosy and beautifully furnished. I like the rustic furnishing style and the matching furniture. Whether in the morning, afternoon or after work. I always like to visit the Florian Caffè and enjoy a delicious coffee.
