Caffe Kilim opened it's doors on January 4, 1993. Custom espresso drinks and superb quality drip brewed coffee were new to the seacoast area. We committed ourselves to educating any one who would listen about coffee and how good it could and should be. Serving the best coffee in a relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff; helping to foster a sense of community; these are the measures of our success.
Yalcin Yazgan is from Istanbul Turkey. He grew up helping his Grandfather run a small coffee shop in Istanbul. Janice Schenker has always been a coffee connoisseur and spent months researching the Seattle coffee culture before opening Caffe Kilim.

This coffee shop is very fun and interesting. I is located a short walk from downtown Portsmouth but is worth the trip. The staff is very helpful with helping you to decide between sizes and drinks.
