“Great place for a beer & for location interaction, friendly owner.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2011

I visited this cafe when I was in Selcuk in May. The owner, Tufan was very friendly and was full of great advice on the local sights in Selcuk & gave me some great insider tips on some of the not so touristy attractions worth visiting in the area. I was even able to pick the brains of a Greek Scholar from the UK who lives in the town and is a regular at this cafe. There is also a roof top terrace that is a perfect place to sit & escape the touts on the street below. Food was good but the company was even better & as a solo traveller it was nice to be able to sit with a local and a local expat and get some great info on Turkey. There were also some great photos on display of various archaeological sights around Turkey - very inspiring.
