Culprit: Štúr Café
Location: Štúrova 8
Verdict: perfect place to plot a peaceful rebellion
At first glance, Štúr Café looks like any other European cafe. The couches are big and plush, the tables small and perfectly worn. But what makes Štúr Café truly unique is the story of its creation.
Named after Ludovít Štúr, creator of the modern Slovak language, Štúr Café is credited with reviving cafe culture in Bratislava which greatly suffered under communist rule. Who knew drinking coffee could be revolutionary?
I ordered a Viennese coffee which was heavy on the whipped cream and light on the coffee but it was tasty just the same. If your feeling revolutionary in spirit, be sure to order a coffee and perhaps a decadent slice of cake at Štúr Café.
Štúr Café is open from 8am to 10pm on weekdays, 9am-10pm on Saturdays, and 9am-9pm on Sundays.
