A cute Armenian family
Why locals love it
Smile is a small, cute family business, offering authentic Armenian cuisine. Everything is fresh and made on the spot, spicy and delicious. I definitely recommend their desserts like pahlava, a little honey-and-walnut cake, which goes well with strong and black Armenian coffee.
Why you should visit it
It's a small, two-room place with very nice and friendly service. You can usually hope to have a table, as many visitors only come for a takeaway. Still, you will enjoy this food much more fresh on the spot. Yet it is also a good place to just have a particularily good coffee.
You might also want to have a sip of rare Armenian dessert wines, so you can decide whether you prefer pomegranate, apricot, or dewberry.
