The idea is to taste different things so don't worry if you can't eat everything, it's not a problem to take away.

Hello, my name is Ela and I live in Sofia.

Have you seen the movie Eat, Pray, Love? Well, it could be shot in Bulgaria without a problem :)

I am a big fan of our traditional food and I am sure once you try some Bulgarian tastes you won't be able to resist them too. I remember how much I missed it when I lived abroad, even for a few months!
Let's have breakfast like we Bulgarians do and like our grandmothers did.

Hablo un poco español también, vamos a desayunar como los bulgaros :)

Where you'll be

Bulgarians usually eat banitsa with boza/ ayryan on their way to the workplace.
So we'll start our tour tasting pastries at our first stop. We can also enjoy the breakfast walking around the city(not more than 10 minutes) or in the nearest city park.
Then we will sit in a small cozy place to taste more homemade Bulgarian breakfasts, accompanied by drinks.

Even though I’m now 2 kilos heavier than I was three hours ago, Ela’s breakfast tour was a wonderful experience! Would thoroughly recommend it to anyone new in town.

La experiencia de desayuno con Ella fue increíble, pude conocer mucho mejor la comida local, cosa que muy difícilmente hubiera podido hacer sola. Ela es muy amable e incluso platicamos acerca de su país, totalmente les recomiendo esta experiencia si quieren conocer bien Sofía y Bulgaria.

Ela is super friendly and the places are cool! I went back several times for the banitsa! The tour was a bit short, but for the time two places are good!

Tasting the traditional breakfast treats with Ela was a fantastic morning and a great introduction to Sofía. I got to taste things I never would have known existed, let alone how to order them. Ela also has fantastic local knowledge and gave some great tips for the rest of my stay. Definitely a worthwhile experience!

Ela did a great job taking us to places we never would have visited on our own! She was so warm and knowledgeable and the local food was delicious! I would highly recommend this trip for the first morning of a trip to Sophia!

Ela was a fantastic host. She took us to try some great local breakfast items along with local morning drinks. She told us about the history and culture. We really enjoyed everything with her and will go back to the places she brought us to many times. I encourage everyone to book with her. Vanessa and Raymond
