The outside of the building is worth to see in architectural style. The combination of traditional "kahvehane" part and open courtyard gives a unique ambiance. Nice to see people, old people on the traditional part with old style furniture and young and/or intellectual people sitting in the courtyard. You can met many writers, journalist...Try Turkish coffee which served in traditional... More

Affan has been here forever, the atmosphere is basic but its very much local and unique. One of the biggest reason to go here is for the Bici Bici rose dessert topped with ice cream, and of course the original turkish coffee.When you are in Antakya please dont missed this historical coffee place.

I prefer kunefe to affan but visit once this place to taste pink dessert which made with rose syrup. Backyard is totally different from the enterance and better for hot summer evenings to cool.

Described as a coffee shop you might not quite realise that from appearances! Affan Kahvesi has been here forever. Inside the occupants will almost certainly be all men seated around playing cards or something! The decor is very basic but you can't get more local than this!
