I love my city (Nicosia), everything is nearby because of the small distances and it has its beautiful spots. However, the options of going out are not a lot and you get bored after a few months. Therefore, when a new spot pops up, I pay them a visit to see if it is going to be added to my “Favourite Spots”. Artnaldas is one of this kind of situations. I can say for sure IT IS MY TOP FAVOURITE SPOT!!!!
Artnaldas is a concept store with the half part being a store with crafts and jewelries, and the other one is the cafe. The name came up from the combination of the word “Art” and the name of the address. The interior is amazing. It is white, minimal with industrial touches. The idea came from the concept stores that the owners, Michalis and Vicky, were visiting at their trips. They saw this gap in Nicosia’s market and they created this amazing spot. It is rare to visit a place and feel cool and comfortable from the very first visit, but Michalis and Vicky make you feel like your second home. They are so kind and friendly.
The store consists crafts, jewelries, decor and clothes mostly from local artists and some unique foreign designers. The local designers are some of the most talented ones like Marios Siarlis’ pentants and Lorna’s handmade scarves, who were presented at my post about the Ark event, Constantinos Economides with its product designs, Souzana Petri ceramics, Angel Helena clothing and many more. Moreover, there is a great selection of very interesting, design and art books. Never spend so much time in a store checking everything up. Suitable for gifts and souvenirs.
The menu has a variety of drinks and food. They are mostly serving healthy food, from all kinds of soups, to fresh salads, delicious sandwiches, and energy bars and balls. Everything is homemade. A rich menu that can satisfied everyone. Me and my photographer order 2 salads and 2 chicken pies that you must not miss. Everything was fresh and delicious. The environment is perfect for all occasions, lunch, coffee, meeting, working with laptop, reading a book. This place is applicable for everyone. You will see me hanging out here very often.
So if you are in Cyprus or if you are planning of visiting Cyprus YOU MUST VISIT ARTNALDAS, and let me know your thoughts. Follow their Facebook and Instagram since Artnaldas is planning events and workshops. Moreover, follow me on my social accounts for more design and fashion inspiration.
