The Brunch Club

Aptly named, The Brunch Club in Limassol has a distinctly vintage vibe. The old wooden floors, antique sofas and roaring fire, complements its location in the old town. The menu has a clear American influence with its variety of egg options, pancakes with bacon and thick syrup, and hearty portions. The Brunch Club is a sure bet for anyone seeking comfort. It serves familiar breakfast and brunch favorites in a warm and cozy ambiance that will leave you hungry for more.

The Cookhouse

In Limassol (a thriving and modern hub of activity in Cyprus), The Cookhouse is a striking establishment. The décor consists of wooden fixtures yet is also bright and open with white marble floors, evoking a creative warehouse space or art studio. On a busy street the café is usually filled with custodians guaranteeing a warm environment. Breakfast and brunch items are served all day ranging from quick snacks to filling meals. The menu includes eggs, salads, fresh pastries, pasta, and kale and granola for healthier options. The freshly squeezed juices are a particular favorite of diners as an accompaniment.

The Syrian Arab Friendship Club

This particular option specializes in authentic Lebanese and Syrian dishes as well as traditional Cypriot favorites. Outside the center of Nicosia, The Syrian Arab Friendship Club is harmonious in name and flavor. Those seeking authentic Middle-Eastern flavors will not be disappointed, as there is also a range of vegetarian options for diners to enjoy. The café is decorated to reflect the respective cultures of its menu with the rich colors for which the nations are renowned. Older guests can also enjoy shisha with their food in what has come to be a regular favorite in the community.


Despite being in the center of Nicosia, Zest enjoys a refined and quiet calm. This is a café that offers gourmet versions of brunch favorites and a truly sophisticated experience. The interior of the café is immaculate, fresh and polished. The pale walls and gleaming chrome embody a high-class environment. The café is also surrounded by many independent boutiques, designer brands and exclusive bars, contributing to the overall stylish atmosphere. Also unique to Zest is the fact that customers can purchase bundles of healthy snacks in-store like dried fruit and nuts, to enjoy throughout their day.

The Boys

Brunch is served at The Boys on Saturdays and Sundays only, and is a staple in the Cypriot hipster community for its shabby chic interior and quirky regular customers. The presentation of the food aims to be as unique as the place itself, with desserts served in jars and dishes arranged with flair. The kindly owners have even been known to distribute blankets to diners eating outside in the colder months. The menu contains many irresistible healthy and more indulgent items. From fruit salads to burgers, homemade conserves and freshly baked cake.

Library Café Bar

Diners can enjoy brunch in the Library Bar every Sunday. Its relaxing vibe is evoked predominantly due to the novelty of being in a real library space. English and Cypriot menu items are available, from eggs Benedict to Turkish sausages and grilled halloumi. There are also well-seasoned burgers for those with a larger appetite, and for those needing to take the edge off after a wild night, even Bloody Marys. Diners can expect friendly staff, a relaxed vibe and low prices.

Get Fresh

Offering a Saturday brunch, Get Fresh delivers exactly what its name promises. Fresh, locally sourced produce and an extensive menu to suit every sort of palate. There are hot and cold sandwiches on a variety of breads and platters that you can custom make to suit your personal tastes. Salads, soups, quiches will satisfy every time and unusually, also sushi, which is a novelty dish not easily found in Cyprus. The variety of cold and warm beverages will act as a refreshing and flavorful wake-up, or ease you gently into your day. Either way, happiness and full stomachs are guaranteed.

The restaurant has a really charming vibe, with selected vintage decor and old-school music

D.O.T is a prime location for a weekend brunch or a mid-week indulgence as they serve brunch every day. Located opposite the historical landmark of the Famagusta gate, D.O.T is a great location to marvel at this sandstone monument. The interior of the café is gorgeous. There are all stacks of vintage suitcases in one corner, an old bike atop a cabinet and miscellaneous chairs around the tables giving the place the feel of a curiosity shop. You can eat inside or outside and enjoy dishes including eggs Benedict, burgers, and especially their highly regarded fresh cinnamon rolls.

Silver Pot

The food at Silver Pot is a combination of Middle Eastern and Spanish flavors. A beautiful, traditional glass chandelier crowns the bright and intimate venue. Silver Pot offers savory and sweet items and it is recommended by diners that you go with a big appetite, as you’ll definitely want to try both. Silver Pot is committed to producing food with a homemade flavor, with fresh and seasonal ingredients. A unique dish they offer comes in the form of the green spinach and chili pancakes that have a wholesome and spicy flavor. Silver Pot is a must for a great start to the day.


Bar, Bistro, Mediterranean, European, Vegetarian, $$
Mouson is located in the bustling heart of Nicosia. It’s a small bistro bar and has the ambiance of gathering around the family dining table. Diners are truly spoiled for choice as there are a variety of French dishes (croque monsieur and croque madame), American dishes (thick, fluffy pancakes with crispy rashers of bacon), and Cypriot favorites (grilled halloumi and Cypriot sausages), all on offer. Egg lovers will also be pleased as there is the option of having them scrambled, fried, poached or in the classic favorite of eggs Benedict. For those recovering from a night out, there is even a restorative fry-up on offer.
