The popularity of Georgian food in Ukraine grows every day. Perhaps this is due to the rich variety of flavours and a similar set of ingredients to those found in Ukrainian cuisine. Therefore, Tiflis is an ideal restaurant in Vinnytsia, where you can get an energizing breakfast at a very affordable price. For instance, it will cost you only US$2 to get a piece of Georgian chicken pie and a cup of tea. Amazing, isn’t it?
The cosy pizzeria Beatriche opens early and welcomes all the early birds for a good meal on their summer terrace. The breakfast options are served from 8am until midday.
