Bread & Friends
Health food shops have recently gained in popularity in Veliko Tarnovo, but Bread & Friends has been operating for a number of years and is a favourite for locals to buy freshly made bread, pastries and biscuits. Here you can purchase a huge variety of teas, nuts, seeds, honey, oils, cured meats and cheeses, which have mostly been locally sourced.
Bread plays a huge part in Bulgarian eating traditions and rituals, and there are many different breads made according to particular festivals and celebrations, from simple whites to artisan affairs which can both come in various shapes, ingredients and decoration.
