Among youths and elders alike the café culture of Larnaca is the heartbeat of the resort. With little establishments dotted all around the centre of town, it may be tough to choose the ideal place to sit down and socialise with friends, have a spot of lunch or just take a break alone so this month we try to make that decision a little easier by taking a look at Six Café.
The café was first opened a couple of years ago in an old, two-storey house in downtown Larnaca but, due to its popularity, had to find a much bigger area to accommodate eager card players and coffee sippers. That new location is situated opposite the old GSZ stadium and can host over twice the number of people than the former establishment could.
Six is very popular among youths who play the popular card game ‘mpirimpa’ for hours on end as well as avid sports fans who get to choose from one of the dozens of flat screen TVs to watch their team play. This, however, does not deter other people of different ages and interests due to its central location, good quality products and efficient service.
There are a host of computers available for users to surf the net in addition to game consoles where youngsters tend to create a rapturous atmosphere over a game of FIFA. Thankfully for those gamers who can’t afford to lose a moment’s concentration, the café also serves food too. With reasonable prices, the kitchen serves up typical bar food like burgers, sandwiches and salads are the most common choices as opposed to extravagant dishes, which keeps itself in line with the fast paced vibe of the café.
The interior is modern and sleek, with modern armchairs and tables to go with the brightly decorated walls. There is usually plenty of room to accommodate everyone but it is highly recommended that, on Saturdays and Sundays, you arrive before 11 to avoid the rush of those looking for their caffeine fix.
