When in Sofia...

May 2, 2016

If you ever happen to visit my beautiful home town Sofia (that's the capital of Bulgaria, folks!) here's a list of my favourite food places to go. 
First and most important - when in Bulgaria, do as the Bulgarians do!
Start your day with a delicious banitsa
Yeah, I know, it's on trend now to be fit and healthy, to eat and drink organic food, but hey boo! You only live once! If you visit Bulgaria and don't try this super yummy savoury pastry, you will miss a lot, I promise you! So let yourself get lost in the charming streets of Sofia and absorb the atmosphere. When you come across a small local bakery, don't hesitate to get in. You will just love it!

Patisserie de Provence
22 Yanko Sakazov Blvd, Sofia, Bulgaria
+359 88 473 0905

Right, now when you had this nice mouth-watering breakfast, please go for a good 3-4 hour walk, do some shopping, take a selfie in front of every sight of the town and get your mind (and stomach) ready for an unforgettable experience at Restaurant Shtastliveca


Situated right in the heart of the city, Restaurant Shtastliveca is the ideal place to have a fancy tasty meal in a delightful homelike atmosphere. Probably one of the best food places I have ever been actually not just in Bulgaria, but in general! Quick service, experienced and attentive staff, amazing interior, beautiful music and a great extensive menu with a large choice of dishes for literally any taste and diary needs at extremely good prices. Give it a go! It will be worth it!

After a delicious lunch, it's time for my favourite thing in the world... yes, you guessed it right, time for ice-creams

One of the best places in Sofia for appetizing paninis, cakes, milk shakes, pancakes, waffles and sundaes is without a doubt Jimmy's! Oh, am I the only one who's starting to get hungry?!

To finish my visual torture I'd like to recommend this lovely French-inspired coffee shop when looking for a nice calm place to relax and catch up with friends over a coffee, cocktails or... macaroons! Le Salon Aux Fleurs is just the right spot for you!

Finally, I'd like to add that all of the places recommended above are on a quite walking distance to each other. So if you're visiting Sofia and decide to give them a try, I'd love to hear your thoughts after on the comments form below!
