    It is something between a coffehouse and a fast food place. Slef-service.

    Very nice atmosphere. Conteporary style interior plus ethno music from all ove the world.

    There is a variety of coffee drinks and sandwiches. If you like sweets you can try the cheesecake.

    If you have a sandwich, a coffee ans something sweet it will cost you about 6 leva (EUR 3).

    Open: 7.00 - 20.00 h.

    Favorite Dish: "crunchy" yoghourt
    sandwich with salmon and spreadcheese

    Onda Coffee Break prides themselves with being the first coffee shop chain in Bulgaria. They started business in the early 1990's and nowadays you find about 11 cafes in Sofia.

    One late afternoon we took a break in their cafe at the street bul. Tzar Osvoboditel 8, from where you can enjoy fabulous views of the Russian Church.

    They offer a wide variety of snacks, cakes and muffins at reasonable prices. Everything has to be ordered and paid at the counter.

    I took a piece of yummy apple cake for 2,90 BGN and we were lucky enough to get a table at the window to enjoy the views and do some people watching.

  • Onda Coffee Break: The first and the best

    Bulgaria's first coffee house chain, and very much still the best! Locations in many parts of the City; bot do not miss the spectacular view of the Russian Church from upstairs in the flagship shop on Tsar Osvoboditel - quite near to both parliament and the Alexander Nevski Cathedral.

    Really clean and comfortable with keen and happy staff!

    Favorite Dish: Really good croissants to go with the world class coffee in the morning!

    Onda Coffee Break: Better than Starbucks!

    Some of the best coffee, lattes, cappucinos, etc. in town. Brownies are very good, you can choose your Italian coffee (by price). Their own brand is "Onda." The BLT is one of the best in Sofia, also nice quiches.
    I usually just get coffee, though. Milk is good quality. I go there because it's across the street from Zala Bulgariya, where I play and go to concerts when I'm in Sofia. Many of the musicians go there (although the basement cafe in the hall is cheaper).

    Latte is about 1.80 lev (about $1 US in 2004); espresso only 1.10 lev (about 60¢).

    Favorite Dish: Espresso
