Although the interior is going for i think an African native hut concept, the menu consists of coffee from around the world. I ordered a traditional kaffa in dark roast. It's an "original blend with the best varieties of arabica" says the internet. I say good coffee for those who want it strong. Brought my soul back tbh.

Kyiv has become quite popular for the growing appreciation for delicious quality coffee. Kaffa should not be missed. Decorated in a simple African motif yet the coffee selections rival some of the best worldwide. The food also surprisingly tasty. Free Wifi available. Friendly stays too. I will visit again next time in Kyiv.

I went to Kaffa with a local person. My hotel was just 100 meters from Kaffa, but I didn't know the place, because it's situated behind the street. The coffee was lovely, and they have a big menu card to select from. The sweets is delicious to.

A slightly left field place to look at but the coffee is excellent with many origins to choose from. If you like to experiment with coffee flavours this is the place!!

Hands-down the best coffee in Kiev. Its hard to find, but it is extremely central and on a cul-de-sac. Seating outside available and inside as well. The inside is really very pretty, albeit its not a large place.

If you want try the best coffee in town its not necessary to go far away only some steps from Maidan you will find a hidden place from which the Kiev people only say Cafe Giraf. There you can try in quiet athmosphere some delicious coffees and some self made cake.Try it its worth!

One of the best places in Kiev, where you can taste amazing real coffee. There are a huge variety of different sorts of coffee from all world. And the good thing that you can buy it in beans "to go".

Great coffee to be had here, the choice of beans in bewildering! The sub-Saharan Africa theme is also excellent and the whole place is tastefully decorated. The sweet pastries here though are mediocre, also the place is a little tricky to find off the Main Street. Good coffee in a trendy setting, that's it.

This is an interesting coffee house with rather unique decor. It offers a wide selection of coffees from around the world that you don't usually find in Kiev. Coffee is its speciality although it offers a few dessert choices and pastries. It is rather difficult to find as you have to look off the street and there is not much... More
