GREENTREE Caffé on Bratislava’s Obchodná Street won the fifth competition to find the city’s best café. It represented something of an achievement as the café is a newcomer to the Slovak capital as well as to the annual competition. In the recent vote as many as 10,000 respondents evaluated the quality of coffees served as well as service, suggesting a renaissance in café culture.
