Going out

A few of the best Cafes in DÜSSELDORF

The cafe landscape in Düsseldorf changes constantly with a preference for artisan and organic in higher demand. Flat white, latte, cappuccino or a quick espresso to traditional German brewed coffee. A move to cold brew and quality blends plus an increased demand for plant-based milks are also changing the coffee landscape.

Ever more cafes offer barista style coffee that expats have become accustomed to in other countries. Exclusive roast of beans is on the rise.

Many local cafes brew great coffee and an attractive atmosphere to match. A powerful machine with metal spouts and filters are a must.


Renowned for its terrific roasted brews, Kyto is a small cafe on the edge of Düsseldorf’s downtown area. The coffee shop offers a selection of some, if not the best tasting caffein fixes served by their friendliest of staff.

A few tables await their clientele, as do yummy baked delights. For those who prefer non-dairy options, several plant based milks are on offer.
