Europa Bedford Square is a European style deli and casual bistro in the trendy Bedford Centre in the east of Johannesburg. They take pride in offering patrons quality continental coffees, deli delights and hard-to-find European provisions.
Europa strives to give an authentically continental experience – imagine taking an early morning walk down a cobbled street Stop off for an espresso and a catch-up; speak loudly with sweeping hand gestures. Hop onto a Vespa and feel the breeze in your hair. Wander through the piazza to buy ingredients for supper later and argue with the grocer for a better price.
Leave laughing, with too many pomodori; bump into last week's romance and share a glass of vino (cin cin!) and a plate of Spaghetti Carbonara in the name of love: 'Amore, mio!". Head home to cook ravioli from scratch for dinner. The famiglia arrives and you let them know to "Fare a casa!" ("Make yourself at home!") before engaging in passionate debate. This is the feeling that Europa wants to leave you with.
The menu is of course authentically European, featuring no less 26 breakfast options (from flapjacks to full Palermo breakfasts), deli sandwiches, ciabatta, wraps, pasta, pasta al forno, traditional pizza, burgers, meat dishes and desserts. They also offer a range of gourmet milkshakes (the Horlicks, honey and chocolate hazelnut spread is just one mouth-watering example). Make Europa your favourite, casual, full dining continental bistro-come-restaurant.
