We recently spent four wonderful days in the capital of Bulgaria, Sofia. This was our first stop on our digital nomad journey. To help others who are either visiting the city for tourism, or planning on spending some time here as a digital nomad. I’ve put together a short guide of the places to eat, drink & work in Sofia.
Barista Coffee & More
Without a doubt top of the list of places to eat, drink & work in Sofia has to be Barista Coffee & More. It isn’t by any means the cheapest place with coffees starting from 1.90 lev (£0.85). However, the amazing co-working environment with access to a printer and multiple plug sockets as well as an amazing atmosphere makes it all the more worthwhile.
Outside of the city centre of Sofia you have Relax. We opted to both eat, drink and work here on more than one occasion due to it’s close proximity to our hostel. Being outside of the city centre the prices are much more reasonable with drinks starting from 1.75 lev (£0.78) and lunch from 5 lev (£2.24).
This isn’t the greatest place to work, the atmosphere although rather chilled has nightclub style music playing from as early as 10am. In contrast the vast amount of seating and outside terrace area makes this the perfect place to grab a cocktail and chill with friends.
In a rush to upload the vlog whilst out and about in the city we called into Spaghetti Kitchen. This beautiful restaurant comes well recommended on TripAdvisor. While the restaurant is modern, spacious and open the place is rather dark.
I certainly wouldn’t recommend sitting here and using your laptop while you lunch for any extended period of time. Again, much like Barista Coffee & More being in the city centre, and being popular with tourists this place isn’t the cheapest with two cokes costing the equivalent of £2.40.
I’ve put together a small map outlining the location of the different places mentioned in this post. As always if you’ve somewhere to add to this list feel free to contact me via email or on any of the social media platforms.
