Description: 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.

“Perfect place for breakfast, lunch, or weekend brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2011

Located accross the Bodrum Marina, Cafe Cafen is very popular with tourists, locals, and yacht owners alike....

I have been to Cafe Cafen only for breakfast, brunch, and lunch, and I agree with most of the reviewers that the food and deserts are delicicous. The waiters are very friendly and attentive, and they do their best in order to make up in case they confuse or skip any orders.

For dinner purposes, however, Cafe Cafen seems to be losing to the competition from other quality restaurants, such as Marina Yacht Club Restaurant, Memedof, and Sunger Pizza which are in the vicinity. While other restaurants stand out with either fish specialties, Italian cuisine, or live entertainment, Cafe Cafen does not seem to offer anything specific regarding cuisine or live music. Because of the warm and energetic attitude of its personnel, I hope that Cafe Cafen becomes more popular also at evenings.

“Food is fantastic and desserts to die for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2011

If you're in Bodrum make sure to stop at Cafe Cafen the owners really know how to take care of you. Great service with a smile, super friendly and the food is what will keep you coming back. Make sure and save room for dessert as these are all handmade by the owners no pre-packaged stuff here. Ask for a sample of each from the tiramisu, to the cheesecake and top it off with melt in your mouth brownie dripping in choc sauce mmmm can't wait to go back!

“Nice food, nice service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2010

It was hard to find the "178/A"!!! Specially with aid of "no one understands English" people! And asking for "Cafe Cafen", every body point you to a "cafe"!
Bad address and no map aside, the environment was very pleasing and the food and the drink was fantastic. The lady in the cafe was very caring and yes, she speaks English well!

“Elegance in a Sidewalk Cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2010

Away from the hustle and bustle of Bodrum Centrum, opposite the marina entrance, the Cafe Cafen provides a tranquil and sophisticated atmosphere reminscent of a European sidewalk cafe -- a perfect place to relax, people watch, and drink the best coffee in town!
As a bonus, the small but perfectly balanced menu provides something for all ... delivered by a friendly and efficient staff that's overseen by a caring proprietor.
Cafe Cafen is a place that every lover of good coffee should not miss when they're in Bodrum.
