We had a nice coffee here one afternoon. It is accessed via some very steep stairs and the climb to the higher floors is somewhat precarious and also steep.
The WC is tucked away on the very top floor.
It’s a cute and interesting place...and we thought the central pulley delivery was fun.More
Interesting place, but all experience was ruined by staff - i didn't see so slow and organised people working in coffee - i think if we were only people in, we still will be waiting long time.More

Dear mr Sergej B,

Extraordinary place! You will get very nice soul of tower, in which the café gallery is. You will get your coffee or tea by very interesting way, you'll be surprised. You can see very nice little town Melnik from the highest place in the tower.
I used to frequent this place when I was a lot younger. Having now returned I'm aware that it's under new management. This has made it even better. There is now an extensive tea, coffee and snacks menu with beer also being served. The building...dates back centuries and the views over Melnik are stunning.
There is quirky way to order by ringing a bell and your drinks are hoisted on a tray to your table using a pulley system.
There are often art exhibitions and displays there. The manager Silvia is lovely. In short this is a must visit if you are in the area.More
The tea room is located in a beautiful medieval tower. The tower is part of the old town defensive wall and still serves as one of the entry points to the town centre. The entry is not easy, the stairs are steep and high. Leave...the pushchair in the car, it could be difficult to carry it up the stairs. The first floor is the entrance with one or two small tables and the counter. The second floor is ideal for a party of 2-3 with a few tables available. The third floor is the best for a larger party. The cool thing is the order and delivery mechanism. You write down the order on a post-it and place it on the tray that's part of the rope operated lift that runs through the middle of the tower between the first and third floor. Once you stick the order on the tray, you ring the bell and the staff pull down the tray. When your tea is ready, it comes back up to your floor with a ring of the bell downstairs. The menu is in Czech and English and offers a selection of teas, coffees, soft and alcoholic drinks and a small selection of bar food at a very reasonable cost. There is a great selection of board games available to use. The tower also operates as a small gallery with most of the art work on display on the forth and sixth floor. There is also the tower clock mechanism on the fourth floor. You'll find the toilets on the fifth floor! The sixth floor also offers a good opportunity to look out on to the town and surrounding areas in all directions.
We enjoyed our tea and coffee. At the the end you place the dishes back on to the tray and pay downstairs. The lady was very nice and friendly. Unless you have toddlers or struggle with steep stairs, this is an excellent place to relax.More
This place scored absolute top points with the 10 year old, who spent the whole visit admiring the little basket lift shooting through the building with its load of pancakes, wine, teas and the occasional water pipe. (!)
The menu is not much to write...home about, but the place is cosy and the service friendly. Its a historic building which consists of stairs, stairs and more stairs; occasionally without much support. Great for kids, but perhaps less so for toddlers or elderly. For those who dont mind the climb, a trap door leads to the top floors of the tower, hosting a small art exhibition, the old clockwork and of course a nice view of the old town square. When exiting the tower, dont miss the eerie little statue on the other side of the street. All in all a great break.More
Place is in Melnik, close to the palace, so in case you plan a visit there, it is great to have coffee or dessert here and relax a bit. The clocktower turned into a gallery, with temporary exhibitions, with some of them being great, and...there is also a waiter serving your orders with a rope - basket lift! You have a great view, and you can also see from close the clock mechanism. An amazing place for kids who will be fascinated with the clock and the tower (and the basket lift of course) and also for couples :) Totally recommend it to anyone that happens to be in Melnik!More
