We were taken by a local lady to Adriano’s Bar & Café, because it is a legend in Bern, Switzerland and serves the best coffee according to our friend. So we dutifully turned up a bit after midnight, because that is what you do in this surprisingly laid back and hip and cultural capital of Switzerland.
This was by no means the only coffee shop that we tried there, but it certainly is a Best Little Coffee Shop in an amazing city.
Adriano’s Bar&Café is “the” cafe of Bern, and if that’s what the locals think, then we saw no reason why we shouldn’t try it out. The coffee is very good, and the staff is great and despite the time, we were not the only ones there, and nor did they look like they were about the close.
It is the place to go for an espresso, and it was good but so was the ambience of the café. The big coffee machine dominates one end of the bar, and a coffee grinder is there on display too. Adriano’s is also a wine bar and has inside and outside seating. It is not a big place but this is the place to be seen in Bern.
Adriano’s wasn’t pretentious at all, and we went back for coffee again the next day … just to check it out.
