Hygge is all about coziness and spending time with your soulmate or friends in an offline mode. Vinyl music fills the cafe with a retro spirit of the 60s, the huge ceriman plant is the centerpiece of decor and the walls have drawings of rooftops and old radios.

The atmosphere is incredibly warm and friendly, if you book a room at the hotel, you’ll definitely end up making some new friends with other guests. The menu is meant to fuel up and not to impress — some snacks, salads and pasta, the chef is known to be working on monthly updates to add some variety though. For now there’s bruschetta (≈$3-4), Caesar with chicken (≈$5), Greek salad (≈$4) and French fries with creamy cheese sauce (≈$3). Main courses include pike perch with vegetables (≈$7), duck breast (≈$5), fried tofu (≈$4) and four kinds of pasta. Hearty healthy breakfast comes with eggs, cheese croutons and porridge, and on work days there’s a business lunch deal (≈$5).

Hygge’s also has a coffee-station reigned by a professional barista. Prices are (≈$2) for an espresso and (≈$3) for a raf or a large cappuccino.

On the alcohol front — there are beers (classic lagers and ales), kombucha (already a specialty here) and while this article is written, they were waiting for the wine license to serve biodynamic wine.

Chilling hygge-style is exactly what you need after overcrowded stadiums (Fifa 2018) and touristy sights. Take a note of this place.
