Europe is full of cafes known for their ties to the artistic, literary, and political circles of their day. In a time when a new Starbucks seems to be popping up on every street corner, you may be eager to connect with coffee houses that have some historical roots. Here are 10 best historic cafes in Europe.
1. Jama Michalika in Krakow, Poland
Constructed in 1895, the name of this historic Polish cafe translates as “Michalik’s Cave.” It is perhaps best known for its interesting interior decor, which consists of works of art done by students from the nearby Academy of Fine Arts. In return for these pieces, the students were allowed to eat for free.
