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.

“Always look for the busy places”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

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 also with added chips) through a massive Turkish that serves two and just about any combination of the breakfast staples from the region that you might imagine. Fresh orange, good coffee (whether it was Turkish, Filter or Cafeteria).
There are a few comfy chairs in one corner if you want to settle down for the papers - staff speak excellent English and the son of the owner's family spent ages talking with us about where he learned his English and how he is planning to spend some time in France so he can learn enough French to be able to converse with his French customers, impressive dedicatio!

“Proper Coffee, Delicious Snacks, excellent service, well priced”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

If you are looking for a proper coffee and some snacks, this is the best place in town. We had cappuccino with beef sandwich and chocolate crepe and everything was as good as it can get. Full marks for the food, service and price. It's well located opposite the marina. Must visit.
