I would have thought that given the economic climate and the number of existing cafes in Nicosia/Limassol, a number of cafes would have been closing down and definitely people should not be opening new cafes. However, after I visited Ermou 300, I have changed my mind, not because Ermou 300 is an outstanding café, but because it is so much more than that.
Do you want to buy furniture or exhibit your designs? Or maybe get a positive energy boost from all the colourful furniture, beautifully lit walls and youthful vibe? You can find all of the above at the new Ermou300. It works as a café, or “kafenio”, as they call it offering the standard frape at (finally) 2.50€ and not the usual 5€, soft drinks and some alcohol. The only food offered is a platter and a couple of desserts so don’t go expecting a heavy dinner. What I particularly liked is the fact that it is full of bright colours and that there is actually something to see and even buy as well (I almost left with a SMEG fridge). There are high stools, “kafenio” chairs as well as a couple of sofas at the back and most of the space is open air. My only problem is that I don’t know when I would go, as I am not very big on afternoon coffee. Perhaps an aperitif of ouzo or beer? They do serve a type of mojito and a couple of other cocktails as well as Cypriot wine so that could be an option although I would have preferred a wider choice.
The space alone is definitely worth seeing, especially in the afternoon when it is less packed and one can have a relaxed coffee in a courtyard of a house in the old city of Nicosia. It was actually one of the few places in Nicosia where I was happy to be by myself away from it all
