Eat & Drink Nicosia "Mousikon" Coffee Shop

“Mousikon” Coffee Shop

Old Nicosia is incredible when the sun shines, which is most of the time. This is true especially when you enjoy a leisurely break at a traditional coffee shop, such as “Mousikon” at the end of Onasagorou Street. You can claim your spot at one of the white traditional chairs and enjoy a cup of coffee, hot or cold, soumada (orgeat syrup), lemonade, rose drink and karafakia (drinks in miniature bottles). As time goes on, so will the ouzo, tsipoura, and Greek or Cypriot wines come to your table, in regular bottle or miniature size. Aside from dry nuts, when they bring you cucumber, carrot, olives, and bread, that will be their way of truly welcoming you. If you wish to have a bite with your drinks, there is “ouzomeze” with marinated seafood (octopus, anchovies), feta cheese, pickled vegetables, tomato and cucumber. There is also meze ideal for your wine, including ham, lountza, cheese, cucumber, tomato, olives, and the like. Also there is meze for beer, including parmesan and aged cheddar cheese, halloumi, ham from Agros, lountza in wine sauce, seasonal vegetables, pickled veggies, and dry nuts. And let’s not forget the big fruit platter with seasonal picks. On Mondays and some Wednesdays there are three friends who gather to play music, from rembetika to folk music and some nice popular songs. Open Monday through Sunday, from morning until late night.

78 Onasagorou, Nicosia, 22 660 123.
