“Great breakfast”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

We have recently twice had breakfast at the Istanbul Cafe, and really enjoyed it. A huge amount of choice, well-cooked, good quality (eg nice thick-cut bacon and sausages that taste like sausages, not cereal, as you often get), pretty decent coffee and very friendly staff - and all at extremely good value. The cafe is about 100 yards back from the beach and you can sit inside or outside at tables surrounded by plants. Highly recommended.

“Brilliant food, friendly people, ridiculously low prices!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

We're staying in Worthing for the summer, and have eaten here a few times now, breakfast and lunch. Can't fault it. On a Saturday morning share the place with the brickies and plasterers. On a Sunday morning - all sorts! Never boring, always good food, and, as the title says, can't believe they do it at these prices. Choose a sunny day and you can even sit outside and watch Worthing life go by. Enjoy ......

“Best Cafe in Worthing”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

I visited Istanbul Café last Saturday after a recommendation from my work colleague who had been raving about the English breakfasts at this café. I had the Builders Breakfast which was absolutely massive and so tasty (all the breakfast items you would expect, and more, plus a large mug of good quality coffee and toast comes free!!). It was not full of grease like you get in most cafes nowadays.

I was so impressed I returned the following day for lunch with my partner and we had the Chicken Shish with homemade rice and salad, all washed down with a cold bottle of Turkish beer!

Overall, the food and service was great, really friendly staff, great value for money and a lovely little outside area for alfresco dining.

Now I know what my colleague was raving about…. Highlight recommended!

“Super!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I used the Istanbul Cafe for breakfast two mornings running. I had read the TA reviews and because I generally dislike hotel breakfasts with a vengeance, it was really nice to find such a gem!

It would have been nice to see a few more "traditional" Turkish dishes on the menu - they can do amazing things with eggs and feta cheese - but the "special" was delicious and the fry-up I had on the second morning was just what the doctor ordered the morning after a friend's birthday party.

Excellent., give it a try!
