I love sitting outside in the sun while having a traditional Turkish - eggs, sausage, olives, tomato , cheese-,breakfast at this cheerful cafe which is a favourite for those in the know. A bit off the beaten track but if you have access to a car or don't mind a 20 min walk along the sea from Worthing centre well... More

CASH ONLY. disappointed that can't pay by card. Other than that nice fresh food. But don't have many deserts/sweets. Could only offer pre wrapped cake slice ,which wasn't even a baklava. But I would come here again. I went for lunch, had jacket potatoes,very nice.

Great breakfast menu with lots of choice and excellent value for money! Extremely friendly staff. Would well recommend for a breakfast. It's a small restaurant so arriving early is probably best but great home cooked food and good quality ingredients. This is our favourite place for a cooked breakfast in Worthing now.

I love this cafe. The staff ate friendly and the food is fantastic. If you like a cooked breakfast this is your place...but my personal favourite is the chicken shish and rice, it's the best in town. Give this cafe a try, you won't be disappointed.

I had a delicious fresh cheese and onion omelette which came with salad and lovely dressing,plentiful amount of chips all for a reasonable price. The coffee is as nice as any High Street chain but a... More
