Rüstem Kitabevi

Books in North Nicosia (Lefkoşa)

This historic bookshop, crammed to the rafters with books, has plenty of secondhand and some new titles (as well as many English-language reads). It also does lunches of traditional Cypriot home-cooking in the upstairs salon, where you dine, surrounded by books, on classic dishes such as stuffed vine leaves and köfte (grilled meatballs).

The ground floor also has a branch of Gloria Jean's Coffee and a shady outside patio.
