We ate a borek (cheese and spinach) and a couple of gozleme. The staff mis heard is and we ended up with an extra gozleme. But for only 7 TL we didn't make a fuss. Food was good, a simple stop for lunch, good for someone on a budget. Nice to try a traditional borek, they only had one type... More

The food was great but more importantly the family who owns the place is lovely and the service is great. If you are in Goreme don't hesitate to try this place.

Great food, great portions and a great price. But more importantly amazing, kind hospitality like you are eating with a family. Greeted with a handshake and conversation, followed by really tasty food (leave room for the kneffe for dessert!) And finished with the sweetest gesture. In conversation we mentioned we were on our honeymoon and when we got the bill... More

We wanted to taste some local dishes. I recommend the potato and mint Gozleme (a kind of pancake/ pita bread). Its not harsh with spices, but has an unexpected combination of the mint and potato. furthermore all my friends were happy with their meals, and the prices were good as well.

We started out with Turkish coffee on the terrace by the riverbed and enjoyed it so much that we remained there for a few hours, also had lunch, and came back the next day for another two hours. The terrace is merely wooden tables and chairs directly on the sidewalk, but they have a lovely serenity to them, makes time... More

We walked into this cafe for a quick dinner before our bus to pammukale. Tried the vegetarian borek and gozleme. Both were really good but I personally preferred the gozleme. The baklava was wonderful and worth a try. The only staff was extremely friendly and we struck up a great conversation despite him being mute!! There were nice old photographs... More

Friendly restaurant. The dishes were nice. We order the chicken grilled and grilled meatball. The size was value for money and not to mention delicious. Cozy place to dine in. They were very friendly and tentative to our needs.

My daughter and I spent a rainy afternoon in this quaint little cafe. We dined on the borek and gozeleme as well as lentil soup and dondurma. Everything was delicious and the staff were so friendly and fun to hang out with. Highly recommend.

Lovely little family place with staff that went above and beyond to help. Only wish that we'd found this place sooner in our say in göreme.

Thank Charlotte D
