Kind, warm, funny folks drinking tea and eating cookies

An absolutely wonderful spot to read and make friends and sit. Made pleasant conversation with the proprietor and some others. Sat at a table with some kind people who recommended the best dinner I ended up having in town.

A few blocks away from the Cathedral, this subtle teahouse offers a great number of tea species. The friendly atmosphere and excellent service makes you come back again to this gem in Sarajevo

By far my favorite place in the city. It's a place to relax and drink some amazing tea. Friendly people, good service and excellent tea are just a few of the things that make this little tea shop a one of a kind experience.

It may seem like a Sisyphean effort to bring tea culture into a coffee town, but the owners of Franz & Sophie might just do it. They have an impressive selection of teas from all over the world and the knowledge to guide you to a new favorite or help you find an old standby. The atmosphere inside is cozy... More

Such a pleasant atmosphere and friendly people working there. I was there with my friends and family and we had wonderful time. If by any chance they do not have the specific tea you asked for, they will certainly recommend you something in accordance to your aromatic preferences.

I came in looking for spiced chai tea and found it and so much more. The guy working there was really helpful. The atmosphere is so cozy and inviting, with about 4 tables. Someone was alone at his laptop at a table and it seems like the type of place you could chill for a couple hours. I will definitely... More

Being a tea afficionado, this is one of my favorite places in Sarajevo. The places is cosy and equipped with a huge selection of loose tea, almost every single one is a true discovery. Also, there's a whole range of tea accessories like cups, tea pots, timers etc. Basically, everything you heard about it is true, a must-see(and a must-drink).... More

First time I walked in to this teahouse 3 years ago, I stopped dead in the entry and almost started crying. I had found my place in Sarajevo. It smells wonderful, the range of teas is marvelous, you're welcome to pull up a chair and read a book or work online for a while, often sharing the limited table space... More

This cosy little tea house is nestled near the historical centre. The owner patiently and enthusiastically recommended teas to us based on our preferences even though we didn't have much knowledge in teas. I had a chai tea latte, which he made at our table. The best I've had. We also cannot thank him enough for his hospitality and kindness.... More
