Review of Cafe Tourist

Restaurant details
Reviewed 29 June 2018

Very small family run restaurant, just off the main street, it has just three tables. The interior just stepping into someones home, decorated with nick-nacks and a board with currencies from all over the world pinned to it.
The man (owner?) have very limited English but is very friendly person. The menu is in Google translated English, so some imagination is required to decipher them ;-)
All the food is freshly cooked upon order. The fried Trout was super-fresh and very cheap, even by Georgian standards. Eating here is probably the closest experience to dining at Georgian home. Its super cheap to boot.

Inside is some of the best food in Borjomi. We had the pork shashlik (awesome), chicken shashlik (great), Lobio (awesome), Greek salad (great), Trout (great) and bread (always great in Georgia)
The food was the best in Borjomi so far and we hit the TripAdvisor top 4 before going here. The hosts are great and friendly, but do not speak English. There is an English menu and for anything else get out your google translate app and ask away!

Nodar, the owner, is a delight! I'm not sure how much English he speaks, but if you've got Russian or Georgian, he'll regale you with stories and hospitality.

We stopped by for breakfast, and he made us Turkish coffee and scrambled eggs. Along with fresh bread, it all came to 10 lari ($4) for three people.
