The Coolest Cafes In Lithuania

Posted by Emily Cummings on 1/19/17, 12:27 PM

ILP Europe

Who wouldn’t be happy in a country where a cup of hot chocolate is literally melted chocolate? You lucky ILP Lithuania volunteers…Not only are you living in Europe and traveling to places like Paris and Venice on vacation, you can hang out at the most adorable (and delicious) cafes during your free time any day of the week. And we want to make sure you know about them before going abroad because how sad would it be to come back from your semester abroad and then find out about the awesome milkshakes and donuts you could have been eating? 

Have questions about what it's like to volunteer in Lithuania? Check that link!

So, without further ado, here are the cafes you can't miss on a trip to Lithuania: 

  • Holy Donut
  • Donut Lab
  • Arba Arba
  • Pink Milkshake
  • Cat Cafe 
  • No Sugar
  • Chaika
  • Mint Vinetu
  • Soprano

Holy Donut

I couldn’t wait to save the best for last. Our volunteers LOVE it here. Kendall P. says that “Holy Donut is literally the best place ever”. Laura S. says “Holy Donut is magical”.  Shelbi P. lets us know that “they really are the best donuts I’ve ever had anywhere.” See what I mean? We even already have a whole blog post dedicated to this one spot. You can read all about the fabulous donut milkshakes right here.

But wait, there’s more. Yep. Holy Donut used to only be in Kaunas BUT not anymore. Vilnius volunteers now don’t even need to leave their city to eat here. Yesssssss. 

Here's the address in Kaunas: Vytauto pr. 24, Kaunas 44355, Lithuania
                                                         Vilniaus g. 37, Kaunas 44289, Lithuania

And Vilnius:  Vokiečių g. 9, Vilnius 01130, Lithuania

Donut Lab

If you are looking for another donut shop, we’ve got you covered (along with some tips on what to order). This apparently was “the STUFF until Holy Donut came along” (says Shelbi P…she’s volunteered with ILP twice in this country) so it's worth a visit. Donuts so soft, with such indulgent icings....drooling.

Shebi loved getting the strawberry icing and strawberry rice krispies and the hazelnut chocolate icing with chopped hazelnuts. Yum. Volunteers in Vilnius and Kaunas both have one in their city. 

Kaunas address: S. Daukanto g. 26, Kaunas 44246, Lithuania

Vilnius address: A. Jakšto g. 3, Vilnius 01105, Lithuania

Arba Arba 

Looking for a fabulously thick milkshake in Eastern Europe? They are tough to come by but not at Arba Area. They’ve got tons of fun flavors and toppings and are open year round.

Here’s what Ashlie A. had to say “Cutest cafe in the word in Vilnius Old Town. And fabulous milkshakes”.

Enough said.

Pink Milkshake 

When is back to back milkshakes ever a bad thing? Pink Milkshake and Arba Arba are pretty similar, but this little shop is only open during the warm season, from April to October. If you miss out on Pink Milkshake, don’t worry, you can always visit Arba Arba to get your fix.  

Vilnius address: Vilniaus g. 45, Vilnius 01132, Lithuania

Cat Cafe

Ok, as soon as you arrive in Lithuania you will see that they love cats. I mean, you can buy paintings of cats by artists on the street! It's a whole thing here.
Of course they would carry the tradition into the cafes as well. The Cat Cafe is exactly what it sounds like. Head to downtown Vilnius and chill out, grab a drink, and hang out with some cats. Laura S. lets us know that “the Cat Cafe is cute but the food is pretty bland — you mostly go for the experience.” But I mean, come on! Fluffly cats just wandering around in a cafe? I’m so there.

No Sugar

Head here for very cute and cozy cafe with hot chocolate, coffee from a local brewery, other goodies (like yummy brownies) and free Wi-Fi. No Sugar is a lovely place to go for breakfast if you are looking for an early morning out in Vilnius. 

Address in Vilnius: A. Stulginskio g. 2, Vilnius 01104, Lithuania


Hip and vegan friendly, Chaika is a cute little wooden house-turned-cafe which is darling. Even if you aren’t vegan, the vegan chocolate peanut butter cake is scrumptious. Add in cool teas and coffees with vintage Russian memorabilia and you are set for a cozy afternoon in. Kaunus volunteers — head to Vilnius for this cafe. 

Vilnius address: Totorių g. 7, Vilnius 01121, Lithuania

Mint Vinetu

Calling all book-loving-cafe goers! Nearly every wall in this cafe is lined with bookshelves (and there’s internet!) so feel free to get your lessons plans done between sipping on cool drinks or browsing unique souvenirs. There’s also a piano you can play after you flip through some local music albums.

Oh, and if you really do love books, don’t miss the world’s “most beautiful bookstore” in Italy! 

Vilnius address: Šv. Ignoto g. 16, Vilnius 01144, Lithuania


Shelbi P. has got another recommendation and although this cafe is a bit touristy, “the sundaes are to die for!” Her pictures really do prove her point, right? Those look amazing and are right on the main tourist street in Vilnius, so it's easy to find. 

Vilnius address: Pilies g. 3, Vilnius 01123, Lithuania

ILP Lithuania

You might want to make a separate Lithuanian bucket list just for the food. Between visiting these cafes, eating dinner in the tallest tower, and taking a food tour here, you are going to want to pack your stretchy pants.
