Our traditional bread is very different from the Western types of bread. Therefore, many locals, who have spent some time abroad, get bored with the conventional breads offered in the supermarket and long for some bread variety. JoVan is the right place for them – the Dutch landmark of Sofia, situated in the very heart of Bulgaria’s capital.
The wide range of products that attracts locals as well as expats includes bread products typical for the Netherlands, Germany, France and Italy. However, JoVan also offers some types of Bulgarian bakery products like traditional Easter bread, rye bread and rustic soda bread.
In Jovan everything is handmade, fresh and warm, just taken out of the oven. It can’t be differently, since there is a constant flow of people, busy to choose between all different kinds of bread loaves, ciabattas with olives or herbs, butter pastries with cheese or spinach, plain or full corn croissants, delicious fruit cakes. Those fruit cakes are my favorite – crispy from the outside and creamy and tender from the inside.
If you are not the sweets type, I recommend you try something more unusual – a curry stick. It’s light, crispy and tiny bit of spicy.
