Brunch in Sofia

more than a year ago

Sofia offers a limited choice of brunch venues, though many have tried (and failed) over the years. It seems the most enduring is the Hilton hotel family brunch, which has been going strong since the hotel opened 15 years ago. Running on Sundays from 12:00-15:30, Andre Tokev's Big Family Brunch offers a massive buffet with salads, fruit, cereals, sushi, soups, Sunday roasts, an enormous whole salmon as well as desserts. Children's entertainment is on offer on the second floor and includes a separate menu too. Adults 46 leva, children under 10 go free, age 10-15 costs 23 leva. The Hilton often do thematic brunches, especially at Easter and Christmas.

Smuggler's Diner at 29 Hristo Belchev St. does a good value Saturday and Sunday brunch, featuring fried eggs, bacon and tomatoes, baked beans, American pancakes with maple syrup and as much American coffee as you can drink for 12 leva.

Motto, ul. Aksakov 18 does a Sunday brunch from 11:00-16:00 with different offerings each week. There is no all-in price: pancakes are 5 leva, pasta round 7 leva and main courses around 14 leva.

Grape Central wine bar at ul. Tsar Samuil 45 turns the idea on its head and goes for a Saturday brunch. Their focus is on a relatively short menu, featuring Croque Monsieur and Croque Madame, English scones with different toppings and Hollandaise sauce and various full breakfasts - English, Mediterranean, Bulgarian, Continental and Healthy. There is no a package price but rather a separate brunch menu you can order from - breakfasts are 7.90 leva without drinks.

MWAH - Music Wine Art House offers Saturday and Sunday brunch in an arty setting from 12.00 – 17.00, featuring a choice of English breakfast, Ribeye steak with eggs, BLT sandwich, Eggs Benedict or Panagyurishte Eggs which can best be described as something like poached eggs with Bulgarian feta cheese.
