“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

We ate here in March 2014. My wife had the lentil soup and gozleme and I had the chicken plate. They were delicious and reasonably priced. We also had the coffee which was incredible. It was one of the best meals we had in turkey and by far the best coffee. Abas was our server and was charming, helpful and the life of the place. Don't let the nondescript look of the place fool you, it is awesome. Would definitely recommend.

“Great Food, Great Price and Great People”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

We stopped in here one of our two evenings in Goreme. The food was pretty good and we really enjoyed the chocolate banana crepe for desert. The prices are much more affordable and reasonable than many of the other restaurants in town. It's a cafe so don't expect the typical service that comes with a more upscale restaurant. After our meal we ended up staying and chatting with the manager for 45 minutes sharing stories. This is a great place to go if you are looking to save a bit on price and get good quality food from good people.

We also stopped by the next night to try the coffee and it was fantastic!

“Friendly cosmopolitan coffee stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

Fab little place to stop in the afternoon for your coffee fix (pretty much any way you want it) and a generous plate of fresh home-made gozleme. Sit outside to watch life go by at one of the pretty little tables across the road. Great value and very tasty.

“Really good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Staff was incredibly nice, they even opened the restaurant one night that we were walking around and starving. Prices are really cheap, and food is good quality. Do not miss the amazing coffees! You can pay with credit card, which is another plus.
