Great mocha coffee which balances perfectly the flavors of the chocolate, milk, and coffee that complement each other flavors.
The cappuccino is also worth mentioning thanks to its mild yet still flavorful taste and with a good milk foam covering over the top of the cup.
Good Chai Tea is also available and if you want to try something out of the ordinary we suggest you to pick the Salep.
Salep is a traditional Turkish hot beverage made of hot milk and orchid roots with cinnamon with a strong taste that resembles liquid rice pudding with the flavor of boiled milk and cinnamon.
They also offer a large selection of cakes which are both tasty and come in very big portions.

Hoppenworth & Ploch offers excellent filtered coffee. The coffee here is well prepared and you can tell the effort they took through every step on the preparation, from the roasting of the coffee beans to serving it and decorating the foam, its all the work of true artists.
If you want to drink good coffee then we definitely recommend you try out the cappuccino and the macchiato.
But there is more than coffee here, you can also enjoy a relaxing green tea or a deliciously sweet cup of hot chocolate, specially recommendable for those cold days.
There’s also plenty of pastry and fresh bread which you can buy to accompany your drink, like their delicious muffins or biscuits, both ideal choices to dunk them into your hot chocolate or cappuccino coffee.
