What is the common thing between a creamy puff, ice cream, whiskey and dried roses? The fact that the four of them are new in town and they deserve your attention.


"Prodotti del cuore" as they say here, or simply made from the heart. This bakery speaks Italian in its recipes, kitchen and even on its website. The two owners have come from Sardinia without knowing the exact reason for their decision - they just want to make desserts in the center of our city. Now, you can locate them on Denkoglu str. where you'll find bombolini (or small Italian donuts with Vanilla cream), fruit tartas, papasini (typical Sardinian small cookies), croissants, biscuits and everything that you might want from the Italian cuisine.

Their new home on Shishman str. is examplery of gelato, puffs and maccaroons (the Frensh sweeties not pasta). The interior is white, there are big chandeliers, a chocolate fountain and a few tables for a quick coffee. The italian gelato is their own recipe - besides the typical flavours you will find fruit sorbes and creative combinations like lime and elder, salty caramel and baked peanuts. Their pride - pistachio gelato (and the nut is almost 100% of its content). The variety of puffs is also alluring - we are dying for the raspberry and caramel ones! Of course, the stars are the maccaroons - and their halves are glued with ice cream.

It opened just a few days ago under the Lovers' Bridge next to the National Palace of Culture. There are graffiti on the walls, waves and woods and the lamps, made from old boards from skateboards, will transport you to the world of extreme sports. Of course, that you shouldn't be deep into the adrenaline sports to be able to visit the place and find soul and drink mates. The music will be funk and swing, there will be coffee in the mornings and the garden is the icing of the cake - several tables, cool lightning and enough space for barbeques, parties and whatnot.

The store on Aksakov str. that offered mixed products will now offer only food and its new neighbour - handmade cosmetics. The new edition is just a few meters away - on the corner of Dobrudzha and Aksakov streets. The code word is "handmade" and that's why you'll find all kinds of ingredients that you can mix at home depending on your needs (and if you need it, they can provide you with a suitable recipe on sight, of course). On zoya.bg you'll find a free ebook that teaches how to use and mix etheric oils. Naturally, there is also a wide varienty of bio and clean cosmetics if you're not up to the challange of making it yourselves.

12 Dobrudzha str., Mon-Fri 09:00-20:00, Sat 10:00-20:00, Sun 12:00-19:00
