This cafe is pretty small, more than that - the tables there are small also, four people maximum. Yet, the location is great, it's nice and cozy and has some unusual coffee drinks - mine was literally set on fire :D About the classic drinks...More

The atmosphere is good in summer, but we accidentally got in to cover ourselfs from rain in October, but the wooden furniture is rather cold and unpleasant. The dishes are fine, but small. Coffee drinks are cool, i can recommend "Breath of Hell" (Podykh pekla).

Loved their strudel, plus they have an excellent choice of coffees, so you have anything you need for a good breakfast, close to the St. Michael monastery and the St. Sophie cathedral.

It is very quick and peaceful place to have coffee with some cake. Small area but polite personal. The coffee is very soft and tasty.

I stopped in here for an Americano z'molokom (coffee with milk). It was delicious. I liked how they spoke only Ukrainian (and probably English too I bet). They had yummy baked goods too. Free Ukrainian language magazines and very clean, cozy interior. I'm going back.

Being out sightseeing takes its toll, one need a good coffee and maybe something to bit in to. If you are looking at the statue of Bohdan Khmelnytsky or have visited St. Sophia's Cathedral then BaoBab Cafe is very close, actually a perfect spot for...More

On the corner you step into a small cousy cafe. I had turkish cafe and a chicken pie. The pie was ok, but the cafe was great. This is a place where you go for the sweet choices and cafe/the.
