Cafes in Groningen

19 April 2024

In Groningen, we love coffee and you can also see this in the streets of the city. You can find a cafe on almost every street corner. Yet no cafe is the same. Here we listed some great cafes for you to visit!

High Choc At Home
  1. Kattencafé Op z’n Kop
    Are you crazy about cats and coffee? Then this cafe is the ultimate place for you. Kattencafe Op z’n Kop is a cozy living room where you can enjoy delicious coffee, cakes and sandwiches. The cafe is home to seven sweet shelter cats, each with their own story and character. When are you going to meet Mocca, Mies, Lientje or Puck?
    Address: Oude Ebbingestraat 57

  2. Chocolate Company
    The baristas here are called chocolistas. From morning to evening they are ready for you with a good cup of coffee, a croissant, salad or filled sandwich. But of course, you are in a chocolate paradise for a reason. Enjoy delicious chocolates with your coffee or unpack with a real chocolate fondue or high chocolate.
    Address: Oude Ebbingestraat 74

  3. Coffee Station Books & Coffee
    For a good cup of coffee you can also go to Koffiestation Books & Coffee in the Oude Kijk in ‘t Jatstraat. A collaboration of the Groningen coffee roaster Koffiestation and bookshop Riemer. A unique concept, which you cannot find anywhere else in the city. Between the English books you drink coffee, roasted in the Oosterpark district. Here they turn something ordinary into something special.
    Address: Oude Kijk in 't Jatstraat 21

  4. Coffee Break
    Have you ever heard of a flexitarian coffee house? Here things work a little differently than you are used to. For example, it is normal to get oat milk in your coffee. If you want cow’s milk you can, but for a small additional cost. Coffee Break’s menu is 80% vegan. Enjoyment is something they like to do here with respect for nature, animals and your body.
    Address: Gedempte Zuiderdiep 22

  5. Spaak Koffie & Koers
    Spaak is a cycling café in the city center. It is not only a place for cyclists but also for coffee lovers. To get together, drink coffee, have lunch, watch races, get your bike repaired, buy parts and ride along. Every Saturday and Sunday you can join the Spaakrit, a ride of about 2 hours. But also as a non-cycling enthusiast, you can come here for a good cup of coffee, a delicious lunch or a pastry.
    Address: Oude Boteringestraat 66

  6. Luhu
    Wondering how to order a cappuccino and cheesecake in sign language? At Luhu, you’ll learn. This is the first cafe in the Netherlands run by deaf people. All employees are deaf and communicate through Dutch Sign Language. The dishes are made with products that are all local, healthy and nutritious. The coffee is arranged through a collaboration with coffee roaster Black & Bloom (which is also a nice cafe to drink coffee). This promises to be a unique experience combined with delicious dishes.
