Staying at Nicosia accommodation while attending a conference, seminar or expo in the capital? Finding somewhere to grab a decent bite to eat on the go is definitely not a problem! It’s not just during the tourist season that a variety of restaurants, bars and cafés are open.
If you’re staying at the boutique lifestyle hotel, Hypnos by bed N’ mix, for example, the busy business executive and academic will find a variety of eateries a minutes walk in every direction from the hotel.
On your way to one of the many nearby embassies, government buildings, corporate offices or university lecture halls? Even if there’s no time to sit at a table you’re sure to be tempted to pause and buy a local, homemade baked delicacy at the counter of the nearby bakeries of Chrysanthi, Zorbas or Noufaro.
Cuisine to satisfy most tastes

There’s no doubt that some visitors love to explore a menu filled with authentic, local Mediterranean flavour.

Local healthy eating places
The Mediterranean diet and healthy eating is well known of course. Recently, studies have found that following a Mediterranean-type diet can help prevent chronic disease, such as stroke or heart attack. Traditionally eaten in Cyprus, Greece, Crete, southern France, and parts of Italy, the food prepared is sourced from fruits and vegetables, nuts, grains, olive oil, grilled or steamed chicken and seafood. Salad vegetables are eaten at every meal, and are often prepared and dressed with lemon and olive oil.
These days, a number of local healthy eating places have sprung up to reflect the growing interest and demand, including near to the hotel, Express Yourself Healthy, the Aperitivo Jetset Lounge, and Olives and Burgers Healthy Café, a contemporary diner which also offers vegan as well as vegetarian options.
Atmospheric mix of cafes and craft shops
While most business trips run to a tight schedule, there may be time for the culturally curious to enjoy a bite to eat at Büyük Han or Great Inn, a 16th Century Ottoman inn/trading complex with an atmospheric mix of cafes and craft shops. Located around 35 mins north from the hotel, Büyük Han is the largest caravanserai (roadside inn) on Cyprus built by the Ottomans in 1572, and restored during the 1990s, with a central courtyard, oratory, and four two-storey wings.
