Yogurt followed by a cappuccino at Lazaris Bakery

November 4, 2019

A yogurt followed by a cappuccino at Lazaris Bakery.

Yogurt excellent, cappuccino in a league of it own for disgusting undrinkable coffee.

I have had a coffee before and knew it not to be good, but I do not recall it being this bad.

I left untouched after one sip.

Every mistake made, served scalding hot, cheap low quality coffee.

That it was served with two packets of sugar in the saucer sasy all you need to know. Sugar served as a warning sign. Our coffee is so bad you will need this sugar to mask the vile taste.

The rude guy who made the cappuccino, it would be an insult to baristas to call him a barista, was showing a girl how to make coffee. What was it, a demonstration of how to make bad coffee. Not helped by using cheap crap coffee beans.

I did not watch, but, but no attempt at precision, the beans at a guess over roasted.

Why oh why drinking outside from takeaway cups.

To sit outside pleasant but for the smoking and traffic fumes.

Needs to be No Smoking and the area pedestrianised and traffic free.

Lazaris is a sympathetic restoration of a old building. It would make an excellent coffee shop if only they served drinkable coffee.

A good place to eat, but not for coffee.

It was then on to Paul’s Coffee Roasters where at least guaranteed decent coffee.

Having had a quick look at the Larnaca Internationla Food Festical (Friday, Saturday and Sunday 11-13 October 2019), the only stall of note Nick’s Coffee Bike from where I had an excellent cappuccino, I walked along the seafront to Larnaca Medieval Castle, then to Church of St Lazarus and nearby Lazaris Bakery.

Lazaris Bakery overlooking Church of St Lazarus, sympathetic restoration of an old building.

Food is good, but I do not recommend for coffee, for coffee try Paul’s Coffee Roasters or Nick’s Coffee Bike.

Water to help oneself. A very rare example in Cyprus. The other is Paul’s Coffee Roasters, though Nick’s Coffee Bike will give water if asked. The norm in Greece, but hospitality lacking in Cyprus where they would rather sell a bottle of water in plastic contributing to plastic pollution. Another rare example is Vrissaki Beach Hotel where water is on the bar to help oneself and at night free tea and coffee.

Excellent Greek yogurt with fruit and nuts.

It would be pleasant to sit outside but for the traffic fumes and smokers.

Outside seating needs to be made No Smoking and the whole area pedestrianised and traffic free including the seafront.
