We were in Bukhara for a few days and stopped here each afternoon for a coffee break and snack. It was easily the best coffee we had in Uzbekistan and we really enjoyed the deserts, juices, sandwiches, etc. It is located just south of the...More

Located just next to the Kalon minarat, in one of the nice streets of Bukhara. The cafe is in an old big house with thick walls so you don’t feel the heat outside. Had nice cakes. A big minus is that they have no toilet,...More

Dear 640aviela, thank you for taking the time to rate us! I‘m glad you enjoyed your stay. As for the toilets: it‘s still the old city, and as the „old big house“ is a 16th century monument, we are not allowed to have toilets inside....More

Quick stop for a coffee. Friendly staff, fast service. Strudel with ice cream ✔️ Maybe wifi would be a good addition.

This is a small coffee bar with a small terrace on the main street. The coffee and sandwich's are fine, they do not see beer. It is a nice place to sit out side and just watch the busy street.

The coffee experience in Bukhara is so so. However, better than in Samarkand, it is still not the most straight forward to find a real good cup of coffee here. But then there’s Wishbone Café, with coffee machines and inspiration from Germany and with German...More
