Please don't go to this cafe, I got ripped off one night when I called for a cake on my way home, I made the mistake of eating a cake before I asked how much it cost, £4 for a small tart that would cost a quarter of that at home...robbers...

Management response:

So sorry you felt ripped off! always best to check and question bill before paying if you think not quite right, and I'm sure it could have been rectified with pleasure, as same with all cafe's and restaurants in Dalyan. Then you would not have to post the unhappy reviews. Sincere apologies, not intended, however mistakes can happen. Best to... More

Ate here many times for lunch, fresh juices, teas and coffees as well as a great lunch menu, also a fabulous selection of cakes and pastries. Staff are really friendly and helpful and its in a great location just across from the square for a bit people watching. Definitely worth a visit or two.

This understated little cafe is well worth a visit for a coffee and cake. Owner very welcoming and always smiling. The fruit juice selection is amazing, and all are freshly prepared. You can juice from orange, lemon, pear, pomegranate, strawberry, cherry and pineapple. There are others too. Cakes are amazing, and the home made crenelated caramel is a delight. Good... More
