Even the creators and cast of “Friends” would be impressed. Freshly roasted coffee, tea, even some alcoholic drinks, and a good selection of food, Kreuzberg in downtown SLO is a definitely place to try if you live local or stop in if you’re passing through town.
I love Kreuzberg. It may be my favorite off campus place to study. The atmosphere, the coffee and food, and the overall vibe the coffee shop gives off is unexplainable unless you study there yourself, which you should definitely try. Kreuzberg was authentically started in 2010 by Cal Poly grads who enjoyed the European cafe culture in the coffee shops of Kreuzberg, a neighborhood in Berlin, Germany. It’s a place to eat, to drink, to hang out, to study, and to get the creative juices flowing all with godly unbeatable latte art.
Personally my favorite drink to get is the Dark Mocha. The master baristas always top with nice looking art and adorn the plate with a small spoon and cookie. The employees are friendly but not overbearing. The feeling of the cafe gives off an antique and unique energy, with art covering the walls in the form of murals, paintings, and homey couches/chairs. You’ll feel like you’ve been transported to another time and place.
“Kreuzberg will always be one of my favorite places to study in SLO. I love everything on their menu (especially the breakfast burrito) and the overall vibe of the shop is just the best!” -Kelly MacKinnon, First Year Business major at Cal Poly
