I have a list. A wish list. A wish list of cafes and restaurants I’ve heard about or discovered through Instagram I want to visit.
Today I made it to one of them. Lazaris, a bakery bar in the centre of Larnaca, serving traditional Cypriot delicacies with a modern twist, I couldn’t wait to try their food ever since I discovered them by chance on Instagram.
I finally felt better and it happened that the whole family could make it, a rare occasion and I’m glad we did.
In the heart of Larnaca, right next to Agios Lazaros Church, Cypriot vintage decor, I particularly loved the beams, it was buzzing with people (we were lucky to get a table) and felt warm and cosy.
Most of the family went for Cypriot breakfast (lountza, halloumi, fried eggs, Cypriot fresh bread, olives and a side beetroot salad) and I went for one of their sandwiches, with avocado, edam cheese, halloumi (can’t go wrong with double cheese), chicken, egg and tomato in traditional Cypriot bread. Everything was well seasoned and flavoursome. My green tea with dried fruit was also superb.
I was too full to have something else after that but the rest of the family tried a few of their puddings.
After a while a couple of friends I haven’t seen for a long time joined us and we all had a chat and a laugh.
Great food, friends, family, laughter, a wonderful afternoon!
I definitely recommend it. The place. And the combo of food, loved ones and laughter.
