Tea House Sofia in Ulica Georgi Benkovski is housed in what used to be a textile factory, located in a small alley not visible from the main road, however, but not difficult to be spotted. In order not to get confused, consider that there are two Tea Houses in Sofia of the same company. The other one is located in P. Parchevich St. and is very small Tea House pure and simple. One of their specialities is the Rose tea!
What excited me about this second and bigger one Tea House in Ulica, was the simplicity of the interior. Its unique and creative atmosphere travelled me as the musicians performed live that evening. This spot is definitely unique for Sofia. Be sure to check out their program and see which live music performance suits you best. I could easily be out there each evening and never get tired of it.
This hidden gem with the artistic interior and the intimate and cosy atmosphere is way too promising if you love quality music. You will find some of the best Jazz bands in town out here. The night we dropped by, we enjoyed Old Classics. The band and performers were professionals and the sound, great.
Besides the many different types of tea, the Tea House Sofia has a great gluten-free and vegan menu with fresh homemade drinks and cakes.
Tea House Sofia with Jazz
Comfortable environment – some corner couches, and proper tables. I loved the deep colours on the walls. The waitresses were super friendly, patient and informal. Our choice was their Toast with basil pesto, goat cheese, tomato, arugula, and the portion was quite big, although of average taste. The Vegan Croquette was our second choice and it was quite good. We accompanied our ‘snacks’ with the house’s red wine.
Service was great. Mind you, they don’t use a tray to bring the order, but each dish is brought to the table one by one. Assure that you book in advance because the place is quite popular and seats don’t exceed the fifty.
I would love to hear your own experience if you have been to the Tea House Sofia
