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.
Greentree Caffé won with 2,581 votes, followed by Julius Meinl in the Tesco/My Bratislava centre on Kamenné Square (980 votes), and Café Le Patio in Dlhé Diely (576 votes), the Trend weekly reported in mid February.
Greentree Caffé belongs to a network of four eco-cafés established by Italian businessman Vittorio Ventura, according to the Sme daily. Ventura, who is from Milan, has lived in Slovakia since 2009.
