Yasar, the owner, can always be relied on to give you a genuine welcome and service. This little cafe really bring a touch of Turkey to deepest Dorset. The homemade "Turkish Delight" is exceptional.

The coffee and the cake my friends had were fine but the service could have been better as the coffee was slopped in the saucers and there was no offer to clean it up or provide napkins to wipe it up.

Its small and comfortable and the place to go for people who want friendly service fair prices and good portions Its not fine dining it is what it is unpretentious and friendly Th eowner serfes you personally remembers customeras even after months since the last visit and makes you feel like a valued client Something we all used to get but in this modern fast food world rarely get.I take business and friends there for a quiet lunch or afternoon tea and am never disappointed Oh not quite true sometimes he runs out of the wonderful Baclava and I can understand why with the good coffee he sells it is a treat like stepping back into the middle east and enjoying life outside in the sunshine.
I f you want a small hygienic cafe with fresh cooked foosd and good coffee then you can not go wrong here.

The most established tea/coffee house in town. The owner always has a smile and is exceedingly courteous. Haven't eaten there but food looks good.
