First Review by Nikoleta

One of the best vegan places in Sofia - Edit

Loving hut is one of my favourite places to eat in Sofia,
1. because you know everything there is 100% vegan (some other places sneak in honey into vegan food)
2. because they make the best vegan desserts, ever.
3. they offer vegan ice cream on a stick (it's wonderful, believe me)
4. they have vegan cheese (so hard to find in bulgaria)
5. vegan принцеси (bulgarians will know what i mean)
6. vegan hot drinks
And much more.

Honestly, the only downfall is the price which is quite high, but since veganism is still a niche market in bulgaria, and the quality is good, I can understand the reasons for it

Pros: Delicious food

Cons: prices

Delicious! - Edit

My favorite vegan place in Sofia! I stopped in for a slice of coconut cake and a Yogi tea. It was one of the best vegan cakes I've had. The range of food looked delicious. It was a very cute cafe with seating in the back. The gentleman behind the counter spoke English, was helpful and very kind! A warm and friendly place that is definitely recommend!

Lovely little Loving Hut - Edit

Teeny Loving Hut with a small seating area hidden at the back which was being refurbed when we visited - we managed to sit in the window however and grabbed a tasty lunch. Very warm and friendly welcome, had some pizza which personally I would have preferred hot, and a beautiful slice of raw blueberry and chocolate cake.

Pros: The Supreme Master in Sofia, Warm welcome, Central location, Good value

Cons: Only small, Food served cold

Very friendly place for a quick bite - Edit

I was welcomed very warmly upon stepping in for lunch, and the kind staff took good care of me from start to finish. I opted for a slice each of quiche and pizza. I found the former very tasty and the latter OK. The almond torte was a good finish, not too sweet. Fresh juices and smoothies are a plus.

Enjoy!

Super friendly, super yummy - Edit

Great, cheap food! If you're by the nearby St Nevski Cathedral, definitely come and try their food. I had their nut cheese sandwich, which was certainly filling, with a special of the day - a veganised typical Bulgarian dish (stuffed courgette). Both were tasty.

I also enjoyed their selection of yogi and other teas.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Inexpensive, Quick

Tasty food! - Edit

I went there with four friends while visiting Sofia and everything that we ordered was delicious.
We also bought lots of things to take away with us the same afternoon :)
The staff is very friendly, all the time smiling and trying to understand some of my Spanish friends ;)
Prices are cheap, and seems cheaper for the quality of the food that they serve.

Keep on being like that guys!!!

Pros: Lots of options , Tasty and delicious food, Friendly staff

Best vegan quiche I ate so far - Edit

What a lovely place! The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about what's in the food and how it's prepared. Everything is homemade. We got the spinach and mozzarella quiche which was moist, and cheesy, as well as the chickpea wrap and some rice and veggies on the side. I also ordered a refined sugar free banana muffin for dessert - quite sweet actually with some big pieces of banana inside. Will definitely go back tomorrow! Great spot for vegan food on the go.

great food and friendly staff - Edit

The Loving Hut has a good selection of quiche, sandwiches/wraps, raw desserts, a few soups and dips. I got the carrot ginger soup (it was delicious- they made it fresh and extra spicy on my request) with a veggie quiche warmed up, followed by a frozen ice cream and the chocolate pudding for takeaway. Everything was delicious. I stayed in to eat, but it's small and great for getting takeout. Definitely a place I could return to.

Friendliest staff ever ! - Edit

Besides the food that was really good (Pizza, quiche, muffin and chocolate mousse), I was shocked by how much the guy working there was friendly ! Loving hut sells vegan cheeses and he open some of the boxes to give us a taste. I wish a had a loving hut like this one in Paris...

Pros: Cheap, Delicious, Amazing staff!

Cons: No cons :)

Nice grab-and-go place for vegans - Edit

The first thing you see when you come into the Loving Hut is the staff smiling at you. They are so nice and so friendly it's hard not to like the place. We tried some wraps (very good!) and some sandwiches (a little bit too much bread and a bit dry, but OK), but the thing we liked the most were their chocolate muffins. They were so, so, so good! And they tasted really fresh, just like the ones I make at home. Definitely recommend!

Pros: Very friendly staff, Muffins

Cons: Sandwiches get a bit dry in the display

Delicious! - Edit

I love the quiche here. I periodically buy a whole one. ^^ I've tried some of the rest of the things, and I love most. I wish this place were closer, so I could go more often!

I agree with another reviewer about the plastic, but unfortunately plastic is still very much a thing here. BG has a long way to go in this regard. Alternatives are either non-existant or too expensive. My hope is that things will gradually get better.

Pros: Delicious food, yum! ☆, Friendly personnel when I go on weekends ♡, Lots of things to try out!

Make sure to step by for lunch!You will be very pleased.

Pros: Location, good variety of food, cheap

Mixed experience - Edit

I'd love to get behind this place -- after all, it's vegan in Sofia, and is part of a good chain, if there's such a thing as a good chain: the Loving Hut.

And overall, it's really nice having it as an option. If I lived in Sofia, I'm sure I would make an occasional visit.

My experiences were mixed, however. One sandwich I had was good -- croquette with vegan cheese, and definitely tasty (though I have to admit it had not been heated all the way through). Other items I had on a separate visit -- some sort of veg & potato pie, and a cupcake -- were not super great. Especially the cupcake. And I think the main problem is that it's a 'reheat' place -- the food sits in the display case and is heated up for you (though I had to ask one time). This approach is ok in some cases, like a very busy deli. But the place is not really that kind of place, and the food is sitting around a long time, I think.

The other thing that surprised me in a bad way is that there didn't seem to be a whole lot of eco effort -- for example, the small platters to eat in were plastic. Sofia has a long way to go with recycling, so there is about a 99.9% chance those things are going in a landfill (in any case, the plastic was uncoded). Why not use something compostable?

I am feeling charitable enough to give them 4 stars, particularly since I would definitely return on occasion for a quick sandwich if I were a Sofia resident. I just wish it could be better!

Pros: All-vegan, Inexpensive, Sandwiches are good

Cons: Food sits around, Not very eco

Amazing food, the nicest staff, highly recommended - Edit

The best Loving Hut so far! My boyfriend and I visited Sofia a couple weeks ago and went to Loving Hut twice in one day! The food is delicious, but the staff is what makes the place really shine! Thank you so much for your hospitality and kindness! Keep on the good work! Greetings from Slovenia! :)

Pros: Staff, Food

Perfect place! - Edit

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Sofia.
It is not really a restaurant, it is a "fast food" type of place but very pleasant. If you are on the go, you can grab a delicious sandwich or a muffin.
The prices are a bit high compared to similar non-vegan places but if you are vegan, it is worth it :)

A great addition to eating options in Sofia - Edit

The above review is pretty spot on. The place is small and was busy when we visited (on a Sunday). The service was very friendly but not very fast. The food was great. We had a couple of sandwiches, a wrap, quiche and some sort of dessert balls. The bread the sandwich rolls were on was delicious. They had a few options. While they were "meat" it's not fake meat in the processed sense, more some sort of burger they're making themselves. We enjoyed everything we ate and would eat here again.

Pros: Friendly staff, Delicious Food, Good English spoken

Cons: Slow service

Good Start - Edit

Have only tried the chocolate muffins and they are to die for! Even though in the menu says they are made of carob, in fact it is chocolate. I am not so keen on the mock cheeses and meats.. so the only other thing they offer is the quiche, which unfortunately finishes quickly, so every time I go it is sold out. Super friendly stuff! Need to speed up a bit, though! Hope to see an updated menu as it is truly the first all vegan place in Sofia! No honey, etc.

Pros: Super friendly stuff, Location , Chocolate muffins

Cons: Super busy, Emphasise on the mock meats/ cheeses, Not such a great variety of dishes
