This is actually a local business, so it might count as a “local” experience. Prospero started out as a bakery, but they have grown a lot in the last years. They have extended their business from selling bread to selling various bakery products to creating a bunch of tiny cafes all around the city. Most of their places serve coffee “to go”, bur some – like the one that’s close to the famous “fish fountain” in Victory Square also hosts a few tables. And we really advise you to try their bakery products while you’re there, they’re delicious!
And if you want to grab a coffee “to go” (plus some croissants/ cookies), while next to the Union Square, there’s a small Prospero nearby, on Vasile Alecsandri Street. And by the way, these guys sell don’t sell ordinary bread, they use natural ingredients and natural leaven.
