Soma Book Station

Top choice mediterranean in Pristina

Soma is a local institution among the young, and nearly all visitors to Pristina end up here at some point. The shady garden hums with activity at lunchtime, while the red-brick industrial-chic interior is lined with bookshelves and has a relaxed vibe. Food combines various tastes of the Mediterranean, including tuna salad, beef carpaccio, grilled fish, steaks and burgers.

There's a terrific selection of books and vinyl on sale, the central bar area is one of the best places to drink in town, and the entire place is run with passion, politeness and an attention to detail you simply won't find anywhere else in the city.
