“Fun, friendly, inexpensive cafe with great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2011

Meeting Point Cafe (currently also a bar by night) is situated next to Sultan Carpets (across the canal from Mercan Restaurant and down a bit). Is run by Cenap ("Jennap") who I've known since 1994 and his friendly Malay South African wife Aniesa who has added her authentic and very tasty Malay curry to their cafe menu. I can't stress how comfortable the atmosphere is there. Their outside seating area (propped up on stilts over the canal) has detachable covers for cold nights (being high altitude, Goreme can be bitter at night). There is often live, traditional Turkish music in the evenings and - if you're lucky, one of Cenap's fire parties. The last time I visited was with my boyfriend Matt - who'd never been to Turkey before - at the time of his birthday: Cenap arranged a fire party with live folk music for the occasion: it really made his day special and was one of the best things for him of the whole trip

“Nice view, ok food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2011

Food is fairly average Turkish fare with some things like spaghetti and hamburgers to round out the menu. The staff is friendly. There is a nice view from the deck.

“Excellent meeting point of wonderful people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2011

As the name indicates - it is a wonderful meeting place where you love to sit in the cosy atmosphere, chat with old and new friends, enjoy good food and drinks. A friendly place where you always feel welcome and warm! It is a joy to be in the company of the friendly manager Cenap who can tell you many interesting stories about places and people. You will love it and want to pop into the Meeting Point Cafe again and again for a good drink and enjoyable time!
