Where the coffee culture is different: 5 top modern cafés in Vilnius


  Have you ever thought why coffee shops are always full of people? Since you enter inside, you experience it so fully: calm music background, cozy colors, unique paintings, quotes on the walls and people sitting for hours with their laptops, reading books or just talking with friends.
Seems nowadays those coffee shops became not only a place to drink a coffee but its getting more roles in people lives. Owners invest more and more to the interior to give the best experience for customers. Not surprising to hear coffee shops called as a “second home” where especially young people spend a lot of time.
People choose its for the connections, business meeting or just cozy conversations. Here they feel vibes similar to home where conversations with good friends or even first dates are memorable and remind home. Also, scientifically proven that certain levels of ambient noise actually increase creative flow in the brain.

This time, let’s move to a small country in Northern Europe – Lithuania. Where coffee culture is pretty different compared with Italy, known as a coffee home.
In Vilnius – capital of Lithuania, coffee shops also have various significance. Places not only grab a drink in takeaway cup and leave but also stop for a moment and enjoy an environment inside.
Here are 5 top stylish and cozy coffee shops in Vilnius where you may stay longer than only to order a drink:
