Mekitsa & Kafe – The best local breakfast

Mekitsa & Kafe (Мекица и Кафе – Mekitsa and Coffee) is a cozy little place for a fast snack.

Mekitsa is a traditional Bulgarian breakfast – fried dough balls made of flour, eggs, baker’s yeast and yoghurt.

Traditional mekitsa is usually served with powder sugar or white cheese but its modern version offers you to choose from a wide variety of tastes: jams, chocolate and nuts, ice cream, caramel and fruits, ham and even peanut butter or avocado.

My favourite flavour is honey and walnuts – simple but super delicious combination you cannot make a mistake with. And for those of you who like to eat healthy food – there are mekitsas with wholemeal flour with no added eggs and milk.

Here is my recommendation for getting the most of this mekitsa experience: choose one mekitsa with a preferred flour and flavour, get boza for a drink and order a small portion of buhti. These last ones are the smaller version of mekitsa and definitely should not be missed!

If you take photos, tag them on Facebook or Instagram and they will share your photo.

Then go upstairs to the second floor and keep your fingers crossed for the long table at the window to be free. Sit there, enjoy your Bulgarian breakfast and watch the cityscape of Sofia.
