Walk into this cosy café and just take it all in first. The blue walls, coloured mosaic lamps cascading from the ceiling, ceramic plates arranged on said blue wall, and all the silverware behind the counter. There's a lot to look at, but in a good way. Lots of things jostling for space and your attention, but the total effect is stunning nonetheless.
As for the actual food, the cafe has a compact Turkish menu with a focus on all day breakfasts, mainly lunch salads and beverages. The meals are not heavy, meat laden Turkish fare that you may have come to expect from this cuisine. Not a doner in sight. Breakfast meals feature eggs, pita bread or light flaky pastries with a variety of fillings while the salads look colourful and generously portioned.
I had the menemen which is spiced scrambled eggs cooked with onions, tomatoes, peppers, with some pita bread. It was very nice. I just wish it was a bigger serving. Sour cherry juice is not a flavor I'm accustomed to seeing in Melbourne cafes and it was delicious, even as it came out of a bottle. Something to keep in mind if one is expecting a grand selection of teas on offer, is that there are only 5 different types of tea on the menu.
