This cafe is really nice to relax, read a book and have a great cup of tea. The people working there are super duper nice. We had a chat and I was recommended places where to go next. They have a good and wide selections of teas. I highly recommend this place!

Even though im mostly a coffee drinker, i can appreciate the athmosphere and the huge assortiment of tea they have here. Situated not on the main toruist road, makes this an escape for the tourists. They give good advice, let you smell the teas before you chose and give lots of tea, all for reasonable price. Keep up the good... More

The perfect place where to buy delicious tea by tasting its smell. Thanks to dr. Adnan (a smart and interesting "tea sommelier") we could buy many delicious bags of tea. Also, sitting there, meditating and relaxing, tasting our tea with biscuits, we felt in peace & heaven!

Close to the bustle of Central Sarajevo, but in a quiet side street, this tea room is well worth the effort of finding. Adnan, the proprietor, is in love with tea, and this comes over in the brilliant choice, quality and service offered. Very reasonably priced and highly recommended.

This is a special place in Sarajevo, a little off the beaten path but worth finding. The staff is very friendly and helpful to non-tea-experts too. They serve also delicious cold tea which we appreciated in the midday summer heat. Prices are very reasonable and all the tea varieties are beatifully packed and presented on the shelves. Definitely a recommendation... More

I come from Sarajevo, but don't live there, so when I visit I have so.many things to do and people to see, but I always find time to visit this place. It's one of the places where you enter some other reality, ten minutes break from everything. And the tea is stunning! Not to mention very knowledgable host. Definetely recommended... More

Franz & Sophie is a tea house that has a huge variety of teas on offer. They can be enjoyed on the spot, or you can bring them home with you. The owner is very friendly and just like with the owners of Dzirlo Tea House, he made us feel genuinely welcome in his establishment. We wanted a cup of... More

In general I am a big fan of tea rooms and loose tea. Franz & Sophie's is a great little getaway. It is relaxing, friendly and (importantly for Sarajevo) smoke free place to go. The tea is of the highest quality and the range is extensive. Adnan is extremely knowledgable about his tea and obviously enjoys sharing his knowledge with... More
