Oasis of weird frenchy colonial cafe

Beautiful place which is truly an oasis from madness of Tunali hilmi street. Certainly worth a stop for a super frothy cappuccino. Polite and timely staff. Great Ankara establishment from what I hear.

The atmosphere is quite nice but the cake we had was not fresh and the hot beverages we had were not drinkable. Maybe some another time...

Really Happy to find this place. Ambiance and decor are its forte. Especially the outdoor patio. Margherita pizza was simple but tasty. Salad w chicken & citrus food wasn't a hit. I would recommend this place!

Definitely my favourite place in town. Went there a couple of times with family and friend for drinks and I fell in love with the place. Beautiful atmosphere and amazing people always smiling. I can still smell the freshly cooked biscuits out of the oven! I never had food there since I always went for a coffee but the cakes... More

This is a highly rated café located in a very 'happening' neighborhood full of cafes, restaurants, shopping, hotels etc. The place is huge, and appropriately packed. It is a bustling place, with a huge menu that leans more on the Western palate. The veggie burger that came with thick cut fries was quite good, so was the lavash bread topped... More

This place is quite a good size with seating outside, inside (2 areas) and a further smokers area out side at the back of the restaurant. Good choice of food including fish. I had Alfredo chicken tortellini which was very tasty although not much chicken. However it was plenty as the creamy sauce was filling. Service was ok. You can... More

This onc eof my favorite places in Ankara. It's located in one of the most popoular spots in Ankara and setting the decoration and atmosphere is lovely too. During winter time wonderful hot chocolate and hot red wine is served. Cannot tell definite view about food since I always stop in for a drink.

Always a place to go when I am around busy Tunalı disrcit. Rich, delicious menu with reasonable prices. If you can find a place by window you can enjoy the pedestrian traffic but I prefer its garden.

It is a very nice place to spend some relaxed time at an even nicer spot. Never tried the food, but I always stop by for a coffee or a dessert when I have time.
