Instagrammable cafes in Sarajevo is a guide specially designed for everyone who likes to grab a nice photo. Hope you’ll like it.

Instagrammable cafes in Sarajevo is written because life without social networks became unavoidable at this point. Everyone has Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, etc. (Is Tumblr still alive?) We travel, we meet new people and new places, we visit different countries and try to learn more about different cultures. We take local tours and often ask for recommendations when it comes to places where to eat and where to drink.

In all of this, photography plays a big role. You take pictures and you want to show them to the entire world, you want to post them everywhere, especially on Instagram.  Whether you are into professional photography or amateur, or maybe you want to put pretty pictures on your feed to fit your aesthetic, I am sure this blog about the best Cafes in Sarajevo will be useful to you.

Welcome to Sarajevo, the capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Place where cultures meet. You will be overwhelmed by so many things around and maybe you will spend an eternity of browsing to try and find an interesting place to go to. Fear not. I am here to save you your hassle and hours of browsing.

We are presenting you the top 5 Instagrammable cafes in Sarajevo, in the old town (because you will 100% visit/stay in this part). In this list, I also took into consideration food, drinks, atmosphere, decor, and location. Besides the address and working hours provided, I added their Instagram username so you can check them out yourself and decide which one you want to visit. I didn’t put them in a specific order from best to worst or anything like that because I personally enjoy all of them and I am sure you will too. Let’s go through this list!

No.1 Sova

In Bosnian, Sova means Owl. This beautiful cosy cafe is a hidden gem in the old part 9f the city and you will have a hard time finding it if you aren’t accompanied by a local friend. The reason why I love this cafe is its synthesis between a library and a cafe. You are surrounded by very chill and sometimes lo-fi music, cosy couches and chairs and the atmosphere itself is very relaxing.

You have a variety of drinks, my personal favourite is coffee with cream and lemonade with Monin (comes in 3 colours red-strawberry, green-mint, and blue). Also, you have another section to this called Pancake Factory, so you can try different types of pancakes. Salty or sweet it’s your choice but you won’t regret it.

No.2 Ministry of Ćejf

So this cafe is quite interesting. It has a kind of vintage vibe to it and it’s very small. You have 2 parts of it, for smokers and non-smokers. It’s located in the heart of the old town of Sarajevo, but unless you are exploring and maybe going to the Yellow Bastion, you will most likely miss it.

The atmosphere is nice and calming. On almost every table you have card or board games to play. I would highly recommend Princess Latte to try in case you visit this cute cafe. I am sure your pictures will turn out amazing.

This place, oh my God, is a story itself. The view you will get sitting near the river is great. It’s a relatively small place but nonetheless amazing. The spotlight of this cafe is on American pancakes. In Sarajevo, pancakes are very popular but rarely you can find real American pancakes.

Combine tasty pancakes and lemonade on hot summer days, plus scenery and you have everything necessary for maximal enjoyment. This place is also quite popular for locals too. I highly recommend it!
