Puget Sound Bite: Cafe Turko

The owners at Cafe Turko are like a bonus set of grandparents.  They're old school, friendly, and fun to banter with.  They come from Izmir, a place I didn't have the chance to visit on my trip to Turkey this summer but is definitely on my list for the future.  When I get hunger pangs for Turkish breakfast, Cafe Turko is where I'll head.

I recommend going for brunch and getting: Turkish lemonade w/ sour cherry syrup, the Mother-in-law breakfast (includes warm bread, olives, apricots, cheeses, tomato, and cucumber), and the stuffed bread (pide) w/mozzarella, tomatoes, and olives.  Finish with a dessert selection of pistachio baklawa and orange semolina cake washed down with cardamom tea. 

Cafe Turko is located at N 34th St in Seattle's Fremont neighborhood
