Walking down the Glebe Point Road, I unexpectedly discovered Kapadokya Café, which is a Turkish café. Upon entering the shop, I felt like I was in a different part of the world. Indeed, the café is named after the historical region in central Turkey, where you'll find interesting stone structures extend high into the sky. I was drawn to this café because it triggered my beautiful memories; those great moments I experienced when I travelled to Istanbul through to western parts of Turkey many years ago.
The shop is beautifully decorated with exquisite collections of Turkish handmade treasures; plates and ceramics are hung on the walls, and mosaic lamps, bowls and candle holders are displayed on the shelf. These handcrafted items are colourful in design, and they are actually offered for sale. If you like them, you can pick a few pieces to beautify your home or give your loved one as nice gifts.

My enjoyment continued when I ordered a cup of coffee and a Turkish dessert. The food and coffee were lovely, especially when they were sitting on the wooden table beautifully covered with a delicate silky cloth. Adding to the ambience, the table cloth pattern has blended in a touch of gold, which is well-matched with the tableware. The décor has added visual impact in the setting, offering you a unique atmosphere than a normal coffee shop would give.
If you are a sweet tooth, make sure you try their Turkish sweets as the shop offers a great selection. Kapadokya Café is not simply a great little Turkish coffee shop, but also a shop where you can find lovely Turkish homewares. It's rare that you can come across a Turkish cafe in the city. Seize the chance and come over the shop for an authentic Turkish experience.
