This small corner cafe has stood the test of time and maintains its consistency for good Turkish Mediterranean food. Have visited every 6 months or so and the meze is always good value for money with a selection of hot and cold vegetarian food plus hot pitta bread.

Great wee place if you just want a quick and tasty lunch - little twists on Turkish dishes to bring in some Scottish flavours too. And great coffee.
