Balafria Coffee Bar - Your Second Home

 

Balafria Coffee Bar has found a perfect niche - Putxet desperately needed a specialty coffee bar. And I needed a hangout that’s just a few minutes from my house..!

Balafria is homely and welcoming: the couple who runs it is so wonderfully friendly, both of them with many years of experience in the hospitality business. Now they have created a place that feels like a second home, cozy and calm and where everything is home-made.

The coffee served here comes from Nomad, and any coffee lover will rejoice to see all the different coffee options. You can also have your coffee to take away. They source teas from nearby Tetera, which means top-notch matcha, home-made ice teas made from wonderful tea blends, and a tasty ice chai latte, just to name a few examples.

There are lunch options during midday and cakes, cookies and snacks in between. Make sure you ask for the cinnamon rolls made fresh in their kitchen, if only photos could transmit smells..! I also had the chia pudding with forest fruits and loved it.

I love a place like Balafria to get away from the busy streets, meet with a friend for a chat, and drink one of their big matcha lattes. This is where I will be hanging out from now on!
