  • Deja vu

    Chirpan Restaurants

    A small bar in the center of Chirpan. We stopped for a sandwich, they also offer pizza. The owner is working by himself and was very positive and smiled guy. There are 4 tables inside and probably 5-6 outside but it looks like a bar and the sandwiches were good. If I stay in the town for the night I’d love to go in Déjà vu and have a drink.
