Central Location, Good For Drinks

We stopped at Dreams for something to drink and to get out of the rain. The restaurant has a great, central location on the walking street in Plovdiv. The restaurant has a covered, outdoor seating area. While we did not dig deep into the menu, the (non-alcoholic) drinks that we ordered seemed... read more

It's located on the main street, so it's always full.But the service is terrible, you'd be lucky if one of the waitresses decides to pay you attention.The food is not good, but the desserts are definitely worth trying.

It has a good location, it's in the centre of the city and that's all. Rude service, they delay, bad quality of food and drinks, tables are too close, not reasonable prices... Last time when I was there I ordered sandwich and they brought it cold and without knife and fork... Dreams for another place!

In a city that is seriously devoid of decent and interesting dining / café options, this place is highly overrated by all the travel books. Yes, it is very popular, and always crowded, and has a great location for people watching, but that is not enough. You need good food and drinks. There was not a single vegetarian sandwich, and...

The Lonely Planet touted this as the best sweet shop in Bulgaria, but to me it seemed like the run off the mill selection available in almost any European cafes. Not bad, but not inspired. Nice location on the city square, however.

Perfect location in the city centre and the ideal place to sit on a warm day enjoying a coffee and pastry.

Greek pastry place, which used to be good. Now the best thing there is the ice-cream. Just as I said - nothing to write home about.

On a hot day, nothing beats an umbrella-shaded retreat with various versions of drinks and ice cream creations. Only problem is that they do tend to overdue the sweetness. Also, there are insufficient seating accommodations and people tend to take a four-seat place and end up texting on the free Wi-Fi sipping an already empty coke.

If you are looking for a posh-styled cafe in the very centre of Plovdiv, that's your place. They have good sandwiches and greek sweeties. However, it's too overpriced and the quality of service, furnishment and the crowd there are just inadequate.
