I visited it out of curiosity as my friends kept urging me to visit before I fly back to Greece.
The interior is trendy and vivid and there are flat TV sets, ideal to watch a sporting event.
The catalogue is long with a variety of Coffee specialties, starting from the cheapest in the list which is the Cypriot coffee at 2.50 euros
The Cappuccino Milkshake is at 5.65 for instance, and a variety of different ice creams ranking between 7.50 . (1 scoop is at 1.90 -4 scoops is at 6.50)
The catalogue includes a variety of sweet and savoury crepes and tortillas ranking between 7.48 to 9.20 euros.
There are platters and dishes like the USDA Beef Burger for 12, Grilled Sword fish at 16, or the Olive Salmone at 18.50.
The Pasta dishes –spaghetti carbonara is at 12.50, but there are others like Linguine Mare Monte at 18.90, or the King Prawns spaghetti at 17.90, or the Spaghetti al Ragu for 13.
There are different types of Salads with the cheapest one –the green salad with Blue Cheese at 9.50, the Fig Salad at 10, or the Roman Style Salad at 11.50.
A friend of mine who comes here often, usually orders the Prawns Avocado Salad, at 13.70 and she claims that it is unbettable!
Personally, I tried the Anari Pavarois (it was anari cheese with carob syrup, honey and walnuts)
My friend had the amazing 'Mahallepi'. It is a Cypriot traditional dessert, cool and tasty! I tried it out of curiosity and it was nice. -5.15
Service is impeccable, and the staff –a bunch of youngsters who seem to enjoy their job. All you see is smiles and with the nice décor, the impeccable service, the positive energy of the staff, I find it the unique place to unwind, meet friends, arrange a meeting, or come for a quick snack, -ideal even for a family outing.
There are some dishes that are more expensive than the normal as you can notice, but after all –what you pay, you get!!
I recommend it for a light meal.
