The beloved and historic family-run Hurricane bakery in the old town of Nicosia is up for sale, but the current owners aren’t in it just for the money – they want to find the right buyer.

“We’ve had many, many offers but we are waiting for the right person who understands and loves it, it’s been here for 81 years but we want it to hit 200,” the owner’s son told the Cyprus Mail.

Tucked between sandstone buildings just off Ledra Street, the bakery – with a cosy seating area – has been a staple of the historic centre.

It’s easy to miss if you’re in a hurry, but they told us that there has been significant interest since the ‘for sale’ sign went up.

The owner explained that health reasons have pushed him towards selling the business, but he is taking his time to find the right buyer.

“We want it to continue, we want to make sure that keeps its identity,” he said.
