Cosy design inside, but extremely tiny space. They have 3 tables and a mini-bar. When we walked in, the place was empty, only one of the tables was occupied by the owner. We were denied a cosy table next to the window because we were only two people and the table could have fitted a larger group. However, we were... More

Hello there! I'm not the PC kind of owner. So let's face the reality, snowflake! We have 4 tables. Two of them are tables for 2. It was your choise to stay near the door. You know, "before the door" - I quoted you. Don't blame anybody for that. It's unfair. Our reservation policies are well known, you can't undersdtand... More

Small, but welcoming café. Tasty home-made cookies, cakes and other goodies. Diverse drinking offer, with teas, exceptional turkish coffee, mulled wine. Warm and welcoming staff, also has some excellent tips for places to see in Cluj.

Went inside because i saw the TripAdvisor badge and was curious. My curiosity made me make a bad choice. The very expensive bio coffee was nothing but regular, and the home made things they sell are nothing u would buy again. Thank you for nothing...

Geee, Pisyliciu, I think you are unsure of yourself either. Now let's see this: "very expensive bio coffee was nothing but regular". Isn't that a daisy? Oh, poor darling! You are saying that less than 2 euro for a cup of Fairtrade coffee is very expensive??? Because your regular BS sugar filled, flavored hot water is the real thing, right?... More

This is a cozy place to drink your coffee or tea or juice or anything. They have lots of cookies and cakes. The owners make you feel at home. They have lots of young parents with kids among their clients.

I fall in love with the place, and my kid, when he was about five, fall in love as well. In dark winter evening it became a ritual to go out for a walk, then to sit for a while in Francesca, eat homemade sweets, drink hot chocolate and coffee, talk, laugh and just BE and enjoy being. We used... More

A devoted small team, highly educated and passionatet about the authenthic taste of a homemade chocolate, a healthy and goodlooking pie ore a sugar and glutenfree cake. Nice coffee, fair trade goods and fresh juices are also made in this nice and warm place. Keep in mind: you may want to come here every day!

Just a nice little coffee shop in the heart of the city. Homy, romantic, playful, cute and a lot more at the same time. Home made cakes, home-made trademark chocolate, fancy biscuits, home-made ice creams, home-made sandwiches, Organic BIO Puro coffee, as well as Italian Segafredo, also some Turkish coffee in old style turkish coffee kettle, organic tea range, lemonades, natural fruit juice, tasty savory snacks and many more. Cafe Francesca is also home for Francisc, a cute giant teddy bear, so you can enjoy your cake or chocolate staying next to him. Our place is suitable for small groups, families, and for those looking for a peaceful corner.
