Sova Cafe is a little gem tucked away behind the Pia Bella Hotel in Girne.
You may remember this used to be the chocolate factory/ patisserie. Olena the new owner took over the property to start her dream of owning a restaurant over a year ago. This bijou cafe has a small but perfectly formed menu, ranging from breakfast, lunches and even includes sushi. (I can recommend the Eggs Benedict!)
They have a range of wines, beers and spirits to complement your food. Olena has always had a special love of tea, and her profession was to select and provide teas for all the major hotels including the Merit within the TRNC. She has over 44 varieties of teas for you to choose from and 12 coffees! Service is provided by Valentine, who makes you very welcome and is knowledgeable and helpful when deciding on what to choose from the extensive menu of teas in particular, unless you yourself are a connoisseur!
This is a small friendly cafe where you need to sit back and relax with friends, food service can be a little slow but this is because everything is cooked to order, even the sauces are made fresh for Caesar salad! The food is always presented really well and above all tastes lovely! There is a new additional outside eating area that has recently been finished, and is perfect now that the days are starting to warm up! So if you’re out shopping, or here on a holiday, stop off at this lovely cafe even if it is just to enjoy a really nice cup of tea!
