“First class little cafe; give it a try”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

Efficient, clean, pleasant hosts and a good menu. Service with a smile and very prompt too. I tried the Istanbul special breakfast which was brilliant and excellent value. This place represents the very best of local cafe culture.

“Perfect breakfast”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Whenever I am in Worthing on business, Istanbul Cafe is my venue of choice for breakfast. Top class coffee and extremely friendly and courteous staff, without ever crossing that line into "in your face". Overall though when the food is as good as this, I would eat it out of a paper plate on my lap.
It really is first class.
My big issue with most cafe breakfasts and all hotel breakfasts is I find them greasy.
They seem to have worked out here the perfect balance to get the taste right without being greasy.
The value is very good too.
Keep up the great work.

“A little gem!”
Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

We have been coming here regularly for some time. It has been taken over not long back and is now better than ever.
The ladies who serve you are lovely, the food is freshly cooked, excellent quality and is great value. What's not to like about this place? Try it, you won't be disappointed.

“A real surprise!!”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

l wanted a breakfast and on my way to work l noticed the Istanbul Cafe l went in and immediately l knew this was a great place to have a breakfast!! l was served straight away and the menu was excellent! a great choice of food and also there was a couple of dishes that were Turkish. The Manager/owner ( Ayla ) was excellent and as soon as l sat down she came over for a chat and made me feel very welcome, l have certainly tried quite a lot of cafe's in the worthing area and l would say if your in worthing on holiday or just visiting make sure you pop in to see Ayla and her staff it will be the best breakfast you have ever had.
