Assk Kahve and Mia Mensa

Ask Kahve - Mia Mensa

One and the other side by side , we can not recommend one without recommending the other. ASSK Kahve is a terrace restaurant serving all types of food at any time: the Turkish breakfast burgers. The setting is nice and perfectly suited for brunch or lunch.

Mia Mensa is a pretty good Italian restaurant. The pizzas and pastas are very good. The atmosphere is less relaxed than ASSK Kahve but more suitable for lunch or an aperitif in the early hours of a Summer evening. The setting is beautiful and we urge you to try out one or the other. and
