This “hole-in-the-wall” café might well be the smallest in the city, so here’s a tip: look out for the one with chairs hanging from the ceiling.
That’s right – an entire ceiling of wooden chairs floats above your head as you join the line of suits and ties waiting for their coffees to go at Brother Baba Budan. From the fading, peeling wallpaper to the name (the same 17th-century Sufi mentioned earlier), this café exudes a vintage coffee bar aura.
The small space means Brother Baba Budan is designed for takeaway cuppas; you’d be lucky to grab a seat at the communal table or the small bar. Coffees are similarly back-to-basics, using excellent beans from Seven Seeds; definitely no syrup-drenched chai lattes here. Our V60-brewed Colombia Carlos Diaz Majin has a clean, bright taste with notes of grapefruit.
There are nibbles such as carrot cake and banana bread available, but really, with coffee this good, you’d want to fully immerse yourself in your brew. Sip slowly and enjoy.
Brother Baba Budan是一家朋友們都極力推薦的咖啡館，
