Hi,Here are some outstanding features of our cafe:We have THE BEST espresso coffee in Cappadocia (just look at the reviews). To keep things interesting we provide daily homemade specials made by Fatma Cingitas (local of Goreme). Love our food, you'll LOVE our cooking classes, learn from the best, Fatma Cingitas, in her own cave kitchen. Enquire within the cafe. We also have daily English Newspapers available to buy/read. Free book swaps are available to take (as long as you replace with another).

Loved the coffee at this place! Food was also very affordable & hearty. It's owned by an Australian. They have board games & free wifi. A good place to meet other travellers too.

Exactly as advertised: good coffee. Legitimately good coffee. The family are lovely and it's a very relaxed atmosphere. Well worth a visit.

I happened across Cafe Safak as opposed to having read the reviews. I was after a Gozmele and it def hit the spot. Nice and crisp vs microwaved. The staff were friendly and attentive. Overall I was happy!

The service was very friendly and the lentil soup very warming so we went back a couple of times during our stay in Göreme. The spot is quite small so during the winter you might wanna go there early on, but they have plenty of seating outside if it is summer.

The location is wrong on Google Map. It's located just beside Nazar Berek. Great place for lunch and turkish coffee. Bread was served hot! Love the gozleme and chicken plate with rice.

Or we thougt it was just a coffee shop but the menu seems rich. You can eat lunch and dinner here. Anyway, we just drank coffee and sat for a while. Nice place, nice coffee. Nothing very special.
