My friend and I were looking for a nice place to have a drink and this place caught our attention. The people who work there are very friendly and it's nice that they're able to speak English. It feels like you're at cute little neighborhood cafe and it's situated in a nice and quite area.

They offer home-made food and cake. When I asked for a pasta without meat (I'm a vegetarian), they told me they could make a pasta (which wasn't on the menu) in the way I wanted it. They made a delicious pasta with mushrooms and cream sauce. The prices are also very good! I payed 8 TL for a pasta. It's definitely a place I would go back to and I could recommend it to anyone.

Chuck in a corner amidst old buildings it's hard to not notice the vibrant colours around this resto. It was charming. A friend and I decided to just chill and grab cay (turkish tea) and the owners (even their puppy) was awfully friendly. You cannot deny their positive vibes and eagerness to make you feel comfortable.

A table behind us ordered italian pasta and we could not resist the smell of it so we had one portion too. It was good! The problem in Turkey is, they always overcooked the pasta but this lady DID NOT(!!!), and on top of it, made it vegetarian for my friend. The desserts look really appealing and I definitely want to return and try more of their food because all is home-made, as well as a chat with the friendly owner(s).

And you will be surprised that given the attention they paid to their home-made food, the prices are reasonable. The interior looks cosy and I imagined it will be a great place for people to chat, make use of the wi-fi to work. Or alternatively, eat ON the road with the colourful wall, not by the road. It is safe, I promise. :)
