We received a really warm welcome at this coffee shop together with some nice cappuccinos. We had a really interesting and informative conversation with the proprietor who gave us fresh insight into life in Turkey. Well worth a visit .

Excellent food! The Röschti is the best we've had outside Switzerland. Restaurant owners are really fun to talk with and have a lot of local knowledge and advice. Outstanding service! Adjacent to city center. Easy to find.
