Situated in the heart of downtown Larnaca, D’Oro is a new café/bar slowly gaining attention for its positive ambiance and unique coffee. While rather similar in concept to many other establishments in Larnaca, D’Oro is beginning to make a name for itself in a highly competitive market due to its versatility.
D’Oro is a warm and relaxing place in the mornings, available to those who have just finished, or are taking a break from, their morning jog on the beach, or those on the way to work with doors opening from 7am. A morning offer has also recently been created, giving those who arrive before midday a coffee of their choice and a croissant for just €2 – a rather refreshing touch considering most other café’s prices. The coffee served is Miscela D’Oro, a rich blend hard to find at any other establishment.
The café tends to gather a fair crowd during lunchtime too, with countless offices and schools nearby looking to grab a quick bite in their limited timeframe. Don’t expect anything too elaborate but the snacks on offer certainly do the trick, and at reasonable prices. The Club Sandwich is probably the best option at just under €5 while sandwiches and burgers are also on offer, all served with fries. If you are looking for a healthier option, a variety of salads are available. If you fancy a cocktail a little later in the evening, all of the common favorites can be found for €6 as well as wines and spirits.
There is always an event of some sort happening too, most weekends see a well-known local DJ pitch up to play a set while the occasional cards tournament is also hosted. Live football matches are screened throughout the week while there is free wi-fi available to all customers.
