Early Breakfast Places in Yerevan
In big cities early mornings usually start at 5-6 am, as lot of people spend 1-2 hours to get to their offices. No, it is not about Yerevan at all. This is a small and cozy city, where maximum time people spend on their way to work is one hour (and only because of morning traffic jams!). So if you want to have early breakfast, plan it not earlier than 8am anyway and look at several places we have found for those who start their day early. Below is the map for the chosen places (all in the central district), it will take you maximum 15 minutes to go from one café to another as city centre of Yerevan is really very small and cozy.
