Breakfast-serving neighbors in Yalıkavak must have gotten really jealous when it turned out that Adalı Kafe—a recently opened spot on top of the hill, just off the road to Gümüşlük—has a better view than most of them. Since many breakfast-serving places around Yalıkavak, including Gökçebel and Tilkicik, are already known for their simple yet quality fare, the location might be the one thing that turns the decision-making process from ‘difficult’ to ‘no-brainer’. If that’s the case, Adalı might already be the victor.
Dining tables set up in a large garden are overlooking the sea—the source of a cooling breeze— make for delight get-togethers in the summer. A standard breakfast spread includes greens from the cafe’s garden, various jams, olives, and cheeses that fill up the table next to eggs, butter, bread, and a pot of Turkish tea. In the afternoon there is more to choose from as the kitchen cooks up a different type of feast that includes juicy burgers or tiny mantı dumplings. Yet, if an all-day breakfast is an option, what better time to take advantage of it than on vacation.
Open Mon-Sat, 8am-midnight.
