Rozmarin looks and feels like it could easily fit in anywhere in Europe, including upcoming neighbourhoods of trendsetting Scandinavian capitals. The menu is extensive and leans heavily towards Italian flavours. The main selling point is their bread: baked freshly in-house and used in the cooking of mouthwatering sandwiches.
Cafe culture is on the rise, and every year sees welcome new additions to the Chisinau cafe scene. Tucan Coffee is a trendy coffee shop chain that rose to prominence in recent years, alongside thematic cafes and restaurants serving up Soviet nostalgia on a plate.
