The proprietors, Galip and Meral Gür, are a family rooted in Bodrum eager to have their new venue add a touch of chic to what Bodrum has to offer the visitor and resident.Open from 8:30 a.m. till half past midnight Café Cafen offers sumptuous Turkish breakfasts, sandwiches that you can concoct yourself if you wish, and a luscious menu that includes pastas, schnitzels, etc. We highly recommend home-made desserts prepared personally by Meral Gür and a cuppa selected from the “Passifica Coffee” brand of coffees served here.

Cafe Cafen - best cafe in Bodrum

This is still way a head than any other places in Bodrum. After a long trip in Europe, I just remembered how much I missed having breakfast here. The welcoming staff gives a great start to the day. Also remember to try the aromatic coffee and the delicious deserts.

Well kept clean restaurant situated opposite Bodrum Marina. Menu offered a good choice of local dishes as well as international choices both for lunch and dinner all at very reasonable prices. Food was delicious and well presented - make sure you save room for home made desserts, chocolate brownie and tiramisu were excellent!

A good lookin' place from outside. Service is also satisfying but sadly I can't tell the same thing for price/performance quality. Do not order meatballs.

As a team we used to have our breakfasts in Cafe Cafen when we were racing at the Bodrum regattas. Not anymore. One Sunday we were here once again, 6-7 of us having full breakfasts outside under the umbrellas in the pavement. Than two of our friends walk in with their Kahve Dunyasi paper coffee cups and sit with us... More

We do not mind our guests having breakfast inviting friends who have brought coffee from another place to join them until breakfast is finished. But what is not mentioned is that the friends went back to the other cafe and brought in a tray of more coffees to drink with their friends, which is not reasonable.Moreover, they were charged only...

Excellent place for an inexpensive meal. The choice is limited but the quality is very good. The service was very good and the location is excellent, directly opposite the Marina.

Wondering where to go for breakfast, we wandered out of the marina to be faced with a host of places offering to satisfy our hunger. But one stood out in the sense that it was MUCH fuller/busier that the rest. Cafe Cafen serves a great range of breakfasts from Full English (but with Frankfurter instead of a traditional porker and... More
