Sofia, Bulgaria’s capital, is getting more and more popular with tourists, ex-pats and digital nomads. As you might expect from a European capital, there are a lot of cool cafes open, with great WiFi and amazing coffee. If you want to find some laptop-friendly spots in Sofia, you have come to the right place. Below we have our selection of 5 cafes with good coffee and better Internet!
Plus Tova is one of the most unique cafes in Sofia. The interior design is like something out of Williamburg or Amsterdam and it is easily one of the most laptop-friendly coffee shops in the entire city. With its brick walls and concrete floors, it is undoubtedly hipster, but you will always see serious people there, doing work on their laptops or having meetings. The cappuccino is recommended and they also have a variety of cakes and quiches that they make themselves. Plus Tova is located in Sofia’s fanciest neighborhood and works from 10 to 8 every day. The exact address is ul. “Marin Drinov” 30.
Green Deli Cafe
We’re cheating here a little, as this isn’t just one coffeeshop, but rather a chain. However, it is a Bulgarian chain and all of their cafes are designed to be welcoming and laptop friendly. The WiFi is reliable and there are enough power sockets. What sets Green Deli apart from the competition is the great food they have, from simple sandwiches to pre-cooked meals, like pasta and soups. It’s a great spot to get some work done while having an affordable lunch. There are many locations scattered around town, but our favorite is at Boulevard “Tsarigradsko shose” 47.
Barista Coffee and More
Barista Coffe and more is targeted towards the coffee-loving workaholics amongst us. The coffee is top-notch, but the cafe itself is truly geared towards the working crowd, which makes it unique in Sofia. There is stable WiFi, there is a big table with power sockets in the middle and there is even a printer. If you are really serious about your work and want a similarly work-oriented atmosphere, this is the cafe for you. The location is equally great, right in the middle of town. You can find it at 26-30, ul. “Bacho Kiro”, and it’s open from 7:30 a.m. on weekdays (8 on weekends) until 8 p.m., every day.
Lime can be a workplace, it can be a date place, it can be a cocktail place or a lunch place. The interior is great for getting some work done on your laptop, while the outside tables are great for getting some sun and people watching when the weather allows it of course. The design is more and as we already mentioned, the cocktails are pretty good. Lime is also located on one of the few pedestrian streets in Sofia, making it a great end or begging of a walk around the historical center of the city. It’s open from 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. every day, but don’t go there after 7 p.m., expecting to get any work done. ul. “Graf Ignatiev” 40 is the exact address.
Chucky’s Coffee House
Chucky’s is a pretty small place, but it compensates with a lot of power sockets and great Internet. The atmosphere is cozy, with a lot of wooden decoration and not too many people inside. It can be hard to find a place to seat, but if you manage you will have some delicious coffee at one of Sofia’s most relaxed cafes. Definitely worth checking in, if you’re in the area. You can find them at ul. “Hristo Belchev” 29
