What started back in 2011 as a simple personal recipe blog is now one of the unique pastry shops in Sofia. Believe me, I can’t live without dessert and know most of the good places. Vanilla Kitchen has been around for years now but finally they have a location in the heart of the city.
Vanilla Kitchen’s new salon in the center is a super cozy place for everyone with a sweet tooth. And I literally mean everyone – they have a variety of options with raw ingredients, stuff for vegans, gluten-free, you name it. The drinks are also well-thought and you can have your coffee with coconut milk instead of dairy products, for example. No matter what kind of diet, allergy or lifestyle you have, they have sweetness for you.
Even if you don’t have any restrictions, you would still be happy to learn that they use high-quality products and eating should not feel as a guilty pleasure. I am happy to personally know the owner so I can testify she put all her heart and creativity in this place. You can feel it and taste it. Among my favourites is the brownie with cherries or the brownie with hazelnut tahini. Yes, I ate both last time. Don’t judge me.
If you have kids, the place has a small kids corner where they can play while you indulge. Or the other way around. In warmer times they would also have tables outside.
