Top Coffee Places in Kaunas this Autumn

A cup of black coffee, a shot of espresso, a pumpkin latte treat or anything else with caffeine in it – or decaf, if you please? You’re in the right place!

A cup of black coffee, a shot of espresso, a pumpkin latte treat or anything else with caffeine in it – or decaf, if you please? You’re in the right place! People in Kaunas love their americanos and cappuccinos, and we’re glad to share some of the top spots in our city to get the hot (or cold) drink of your choice.

Green Cafe

If you’d visit Green Café every day, trying all possible variations of their coffee would take… a year. Thirty-five types of coffee with ten ways to prepare it – count it yourselves! If we add combinations with milk and desserts, you’ll be stuck here until 2030. Did we mention they have two joints on Laisvės alėja?..

Chaika has been a must-visit spot in Vilnius for years; thanks to two amazing women, we can enjoy the delicious vegan desserts and carefully prepared drinks in Kaunas, too. Visit the cozy cafe on Daukšos street for all of the above, as well as a very instagrammable decor and a generous flow of cultural press.

Dale Cooper needed a single “cup of joe” 20 years back. Urban cowboys now require a cheesecake and a power outlet too, and the dense Caffeine network has been dedicated to providing it all for more than a decade.

Kavos kerai

50 types of coffee. Don’t drink coffee? Pick one of 60 kinds of tea then. This place is remarkable for its “real café” smell, maybe that’s why people keep coming back here for over ten years.

Mėnulis Retro

For lovers of tall things vintage, we recommend visiting the café that opened just a few months ago in the heart of the Old Town. We were surprised not only by the wide selection of coffee but also by the cosy atmosphere, which takes you back to the laid back days of the 20th century.

Vero Cafe

The second quality coffee laboratory in the country, Her Excellency by Vero Cafe, opened its doors in the renewed Kaunas Vienybės Square half a year ago. Even the most prominent coffee lovers appreciate the methods and flavours. We also the love the generous breakfast menu – Ron Swanson wouldn’t be able to leave…

CH Chocolaterie

The legendary and very sinful chocolaterie was on Vilnius street back in the days, but this one doesn’t imitate previous traditions, it instead creates new ones in a bold yet sweet way. Here’s a real kaunastic secret – order Triestino Doppio.

Motiejaus kepyklėlė

Breakfast can be going through the pages of your diary whilst enjoying an omelette; lunch can require a resting spot if your feet are tired from walking all over Kaunas Old Town. In any case, Motiejus will provide ciabattas, croissants, various bread and other baked goods at any time of the day.


Spurginė is not about to change any recipes or prices soon, and that’s why it’s the first listing on the register of Kaunas’ classical places. For nearly four decades it has been and still is the sweetest spot on Laisvės Avenue, taking a holiday only in July. Order a coffee of choice with your doughnut; the truth is, the locals prefer cacao!

Caif Cafe

Not long ago, in the modernist architecture gem on Gediminas str. 45, a café was opened where visitors are greeted by a wall with a portrait of the architect, Arnas Funkas, who designed the house, and drawings of the building. In addition to the exceptionally cosy environment, you will find many of your favourite coffees here, which you can flavour with chocolate, cinnamon or syrup! Oh, and did you know a student cafe was open here some one hundred years ago?..
