A tiny place near Cismigiu Park, Trofic is the sister place of Origo – Bucharest’s original coffee roastery and coffee bar. This is where you go for local food , local ingredients and one of the best cups of coffee in Romania.
One of their latest dishes I enjoy very much is poached eggs on a bed of aromatic yogurt with fresh veggies. But you can also get salads, toasts, soups or main courses. The avocado toast here is a classic, as is the salmon toast. But honestly, I don’t think I’ve eaten something here I didn’t like – and I think I might have tried their whole menu.
You go to Trofic for: breakfast and brunch in a casual atmosphere, for simple, healthy, quality food made from local ingredients and an excellent cup of coffee.
You don’t go to Trofic: if you’re in a group larger than 4. Or if you’re looking for the friend, meaty sort of food.
You’ll see they also feature some other local speciality products on the counter – like jams, chocolate, wine. Quite good for gifts or to take back home with you.
What I feel they’re not fully mastering yet is the desserts – while very good and traditionally made, they don’t have a signature dessert that I could recommend. Also, my personal preference is towards more creamy desserts, while they seem to favor tarts and sponge cakes.
