A Hint of Europe

This is a popular spot with somewhat limited outdoor seating, most of which is reserved for the ubiquitous smoking population. Pricing is on the premium side but the European atmosphere, especially indoors, is an attractive alternative to nearby competitors.

I have been visiting this cafe for the last 18 years now, since I moved to Ankara for college. Very decent food and good pricing, but also a praceful place to read your book and have a cup of coffee with the street view or the garden. Would strongly recommend for a real Ankara Cafe experience!

So I had to visit the in street of Ankara and went for dinner at this cafe. I had high hopes based on previous reviews. Alas, while the location is nice and very central for people gazing on Tunali Street, the food was so-so. I ordered the Kofte platter sticking to Turkish cuisine. The meat was over grounded, almost liquefied... More

Stop for a tea, hot chocolate or coffee and enjoy the charm of this café. The atmosphere in the backside garden or inside is very pleasant. A good experience to chill out in a relaxing atmosphere

Never dissapoints! The atmosphere is nice and fresh flowers on the tables make the place welcoming. Food is delicious and service is somewhat fast. Prices are reasonable ($). They don'r serve alcohol

Very nice ambience; nice people; nice food. If you are around Tunalı Hilmi Street you can sit in this Café and have good drink. During the night you can also have hot wine (in the winter time).

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...

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.

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!
