Barista is a cafe upstairs in MVG, a galleria in Umeå. It is not the only cafe in the building but it is the only on worth going to. The staff have been, in my experience, delightful and they have both treats and sandwhiches, as well as breakfast choices. They serve coffee, tea, lattes, smoothies and even iced coffees.
Barista does have my favorite cookies in all of Umeå. I’m not sure where they get them from but they’re giant and soft.
The downsides of Barista are, of course, that it’s located in a mall so it can get pretty loud with foot traffic and they don’t have their own bathrooms, as far as I’m aware.
They do have these cute plug ins on the table though if you’re phone is dying and you need an elecricity fix.
It can also be full on occassion so look for a seat before you order if you’re planning to take one.
I know Phong loves the coconut pie/cake creation here and they have these adorable little cupcakes too but I have trouble resisting a good cookie.
