I love places that have little gardens. One can hardly find one in Pristina. The only place that has one cute little garden closed it in the first week last summer. That kinda spoiled my mood. I was on a ‘stalking mission’ on social media (like everyone else: P), checking others’ posts and about places in town. There I found my garden. A friend ‘liked’ Sonder and I immediately checked their page. The next day I visited to see it myself.
Sonder is in the uptown of Pristina at a quiet block in a private house with a beautiful back garden. It gives you a cozy and warm feeling once you step in. The interior is curated with an eye for details; retro wooden chairs, beautiful paintings and personal photographs nicely arranged on the wall.
Sonder has an interesting menu. There you can have the best bagels in town, cinnamon rolls, chocolate chip cookies and muffins filled with seasonal fruit(my favorite is raspberry muffin). I know what you might be thinking: “wait. Is that all?” Agnesa (the owner), will pull a surprise from time to time by bringing tastes from the world such as Shakshuka from Israel, breakfasts for two with seasonal ingredients and colorful salads.
Sonder is more than just another café in town. You can enjoy your drinks while playing board games which there are of many kinds here. It’s a space where young artists make their sketches and play music, inspiring others.
Everyone has a story…
