I would highly recommend the beautiful and warm restaurant Okka based in the heart of picturesque Harpenden. The food is to die for (especially their cheesecake) and the bustling but relaxed atmosphere makes for a delightful dining experience whether you go for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The staff are friendly and cheerful and will make you feel welcome.

One of my favourite places in harpenden for lunch. Usually only come in for lunch for the club sandwich and the salmon rosti but this time i came for breakfast, as i thought. Outstanding, very good service by the young waiter always making us want to come back. Advice you to try the double bubble 😊

Beautiful setting incorporating hearty meals and great ambience. Turkish breakfast is amazing and always greeted with a la carte service from Duran and his team. The freshest bread compliments their breakfast, lunch and dinner menu. Great family restaurant!!

Okka has become the first choice whenever my wife and I are visiting Harpenden. The menu is a fantastic mix between British mainstays and Turkish treats. After multiple visits, regardless of the time of day the service is always friendly and fast. Durran has been our host on a few of our visits and is particularly keen to ensure our... More

Weekend Breakfast out and Okka didn't disappoint. Of course hubby had the full english, I ordered Menemen a turkish dish which was a delightful change to the norm. Beautifully poached eggs, fresh tomatoes onions, garlic and fresh mint served with crusty bread to mop up those delicious juices. Delicious coffee to follow. Service very good, always a happy busy atmosphere

I've only been to this restaurant a handful of times but I always enjoy the food and the service is excellent. On all occasions I've been with my toddler son and they've always been very accommodating and he enjoys the food too. The portions are generous and there's a good selection on the menu. I've never booked (don't even know... More

Description
An all day eatery with a Mediterranean influence serving breakfast, lunch and dinner (in that order).Because we are an all day eatery it means you can come with your kids (for bubble and squeak and a milkshake), you can come with your friends (for a carefully selected ‘Teapigs’ tea and slice of the drizzliest lemon drizzle cake ever),  you can come with your other half (for our  ‘21 day aged’ rib eye steaks and bottle of Rioja) or you can just come on your own, to enjoy a cup of our excellent coffee and linger over the papers. (Slippers not included).
