Review: Let Them Eat Cake, Paphos

Almost six years since it opened its doors in the heart of Paphos Old Town, Let Them Eat Cake has firmly established itself as a popular meeting place for cake lovers of all ages, and also a hub for all sorts of cultural activities including art exhibitions and live music events.

Found close the town hall, although the venue has an unassuming exterior, don’t be fooled by it. Inside is spacious, contemporary, quirky and inviting. A selection of large sofas and tables and chairs are found inside and in the warmer months, a delightful seating area in the shaded back garden is a secret oasis among the hubbub of the town.

The general feeling of the cafe is laid back, cool and relaxed. I regularly frequent this venue, drawn back time and again by its homey atmosphere, excellent quality and value for money.

If you have a sweet tooth, or a craving for cake or other saccharin delicacies, this is ‘the’ go to place in Paphos. They do serve other food too, and often add specials, such as cream of broccoli soup topped with walnuts and goat’s cheese in the winter months, vegan options are also available.

Portions are generous and all of the food and drinks are beautifully presented. The cakes and the menu offer top quality tasty home made food with a twist.

Salads (the Virginian salad if you like blue cheese and avocado), sandwiches (gluten free bread is also on offer) and burgers are all popular choices and vegan options are also on the menu. Brunch is available at limited times during weekends.

All sorts of coffees, teas, hot and cold beverages and alcoholic drinks are reasonably priced. Gin and tonic and local wines are popular after dark (the venue is open until midnight) and board games and books are available and families are welcome.

This is a ‘homey’ cafe, which offers something really different. Paphos is lucky to have a cake ‘treasure trove’ for all to enjoy.
