This was the best coffee I had in Cappadocia, we came back again just for the Flat White (we’re Australian so you can understand why). Kebab, Lentil soup and Baklava were very good and all prices very reasonable. Service was excellent. Would recommend highly.

Thus far the best restaurant for breakfast - which I have tried in capadoccia. The soup was really delicious treat, the crepe (or Turkish pan cake) was another delicacy. I plan to come here again

Stumbled upon this place in search of a place open for an early breakfast after watching the balloons rising with the sunrise. Friendly family cooked fresh and simple authentic breakfast for us. I’ll coming back for the famed lentil soup!

I stopped off here to have a quick tea and rest on my first day in Goreme. I wasn't expecting anything special when I ordered the gozleme but I was pleasantly surprised. I wholeheartedly recommend to anyone looking for a quick and satisfying lunch.
