But first, coffee! Not just any coffee, however. The best a city has to offer. Everything about Knopes Artisan Torrefacteur café is unique, from their space (a large renovated garage), to their extensive knowledge of coffee. This family-owned business, which opened its doors in 1936, is one of our favourite cafés in Luxembourg City. Now onto its 4th generation of coffee makers (and coffee lovers), it’s fair to say Knopes takes its coffee very seriously. Not into coffee? They also have a variety of teas – green, black, white and rare, Rooibos and infusion all included.

2. Ready?!

With bicycles covering its walls and colourful cosy furnishings, Ready?! café is the answer to a hungry stomach, as well as the new wave of veganism and vegetarianism. Along with vegan and veggie offerings, this is one of the cafés in Luxembourg City which also caters to the less fussy stomach. The food is wholesome and healthy and, for late sleepers, the all-day breakfast is especially popular. When you’re ready for your next cup of coffee, this is the place to get it.

3. Bistro Beim Renert

The place to see and be seen, with the bonus of incredible food. Just a short walk from the Grand Ducal Palace, Bistro Beim Renert Café not only offers a great selection of beers and original cocktails, but the menu is especially delicious. From meatballs to soup to chicken curry, every day offers a different culinary surprise with a constantly changing menu to keep you on your toes. Its stone walls, crisp white table clothes and fire in winter also add to the cosy vibes. Be sure to book a table beforehand, so you don’t miss out.

After pounding the pavements, you’ll need another coffee break. One of our favourite cafés in Luxembourg City is the legendary Ladurée Luxembourg. Treat yourself and sit down to an elegant tea at what was once a bakery, opened in 1862 by Ernest Ladurée. Since then, the Ladurée Luxembourg has seen the city grow and change. Under the Second Empire, with societal changes, women were looking for a place to gather, and so the tea room was born. The pièce de résistance, however, is those bite-sized sugary bits of heaven called macaron. The recipe hasn’t changed since they started serving them in the 19th century.  

5. Njörd

Craving good old home-cooked food? Look no further than Njörd Café. Priding themselves on their fresh flavours inspired by Nordic tradition, Njörd is a little Scandinavian treat in the midst of Benelux – a testament to the country’s ‘international’ state of mind. Their hot and cold dishes include soups, salads, sandwiches, bagels, quiches, smørrebrod (a traditional open Scandinavian sandwich) and bagels. Njörd also caters to the sweet tooth with desserts and pastries. Located along the Landstrasse, this Luxembourg City café presents its dishes with artistic flair. This, combined with its cosy décor, will make you feel right at home. 

6. Kaale Kaffi 

Orange walls covered in an array of art featuring faces, landscapes, splashes of colour and animation, are all the rage at Kaale Kaffi. Expect loud carpets with arty patterns, heavy furniture covered in books and quirky cushions. Our favourite vintage café is a rather quirky option compared to the other restaurants in Luxembourg City. We love it, however, because it manages the seemingly impossible – blending an antique store with café culture – and offers an unforgettable menu to boot.

7. Café de Paris Luxembourg

Since you’re visiting one of the richest countries in the world, it would only be right to dine in style. Saving the the best for last, Café de Paris Luxembourg, is undoubtedly one of the best cafes in Luxembourg City. Try and grab a spot on the terrace for the best views, and enjoy tucking into French-inspired tapas, fine wines and a menu that features fresh seasonal ingredients. Bon appetit!
