Places To Drink, Eat & Work In Varna, Bulgaria

The second largest city in Bulgaria, Varna is a great place to visit. We spent a little less than 48 hours in this magical destination. However, in that time we managed to find the very best places to drink, eat and work.

Fast Food Kitchen

This place is exactly as you’d expect from the name. A little like a school or work cafeteria, but quick, clean, spacious and modern none the less.

The food wasn’t the best I’ve ever had in my life but with a great location and good variety it was the perfect place to grab a traditional Bulgarian lunch. We managed to get 2 mains, a side salad and a 500ml bottled drink for the Bulgarian LV equivalent of £4.50.

Take Me

Take Me is a fantastic place to grab a drink of freshly pressed fruit juice or coffee and watch the world go by. Situated on the high-street the menu is in Bulgarian, but the staff have great English. A 400ml juice set us back 3.40lv.


Le Chef

Without a doubt my favourite place to eat in Varna had to be Le Chef. So much so in fact that we ate there for dinner both evenings we were in Varna. This fast-food establishment is very popular with the local younger generation. Serving freshly made wraps and quesadillas.

There’s some unlocked Wifi near by which made it the perfect place to check our emails on our phone and book a hostel for our next destination. The prices are super reasonable too. In fact 2 wraps, 2 drinks and a side of fries set us back just 10lv.


This place had a more traditional ‘tourist’ kind of feel to it. Benefitting from a very large seating area, and great wifi it makes for the perfect place to work from over lunch.

We opted for a late breakfast, early lunch here in the form of two slices of toast with cheese & egg / cheese & ham. This alongside a can of Coke Zero came in at 10lv. A little more than most, but I’ve a feeling you pay for the restaurant style service.

So Good, So Fresh

So Good, So Fresh is another perfect destination for ‘world watching’. Home of some amazing smoothies, juices and salads this place is not to be missed.With a mix of locals and tourists So Good, So Fresh is home to amazing atmosphere.

However, it comes at a price… one salad, one 400ml juice and one 500ml juice came in at 11.70lv. So, it’s no wonder this place accepts card payments.
