Coffeedocia: Where to have Breakfast in Göreme, Cappadocia, Turkey

We had just gotten off a ten-hour bus from Denizli. It was a comfortable ride but ten hours is still ten hours so we were tired and stiff, not to mention hungry. It was shortly after sunrise in early November so the air was cool and crisp but not too cold. A beautiful morning, the sky was a clear cobalt blue, the sun having just risen from behind the fairy chimneys to cast an orange glow over Göreme town.

It was our first time in Cappadocia so to see it bathed in the soft light of early morning like this was magical. It was about as perfect an introduction to this alien landscape as we could hope for. Eager to explore but a few hours away from checking in to our hotel, we dragged our luggage in search of Turkish breakfast and a good cup of black coffee.

Thanks to Coffeedocia, we didn’t have to go far.

Coffeedocia is right next to Göreme’s otogar (bus station). It’s an ideal place to enjoy a meal if you’re coming or going by bus. A surprisingly big restaurant, it has indoor and outdoor seating.

Not exactly sure what time but Coffeedocia opens pretty early. It was the only establishment we saw that was already open at this hour.

Pastirmali Yumurta — 12TL — Fried eggs with pastirma

My breakfast of fried eggs and pastirma, which is a highly seasoned, air-dried cured beef native to Anatolia. Meaning “pressed meat” in Turkish, pastirma is said to be the origin of American pastrami.

Menemen — 9TL — Scrambled eggs with tomatoes, banana peppers, and onions

A traditional Turkish dish made with eggs, onions, tomatoes, green peppers, and spices. Like the pastirma, this menemen was perfect with crusty bread.

We only had breakfast here but based on its TripAdvisor reviews, Coffeedocia has an extensive menu. They’re also a shisha bar and offer a good selection of desserts, though they don’t serve any alcoholic drinks. Breakfast was delicious and prices were reasonable.

Because they’re located right next to the otogar parking lot, Coffeedocia is ideal for breakfast if you’ll be arriving in Göreme by overnight bus. They open early so it’s a great place to freshen up and while away the time before checking in to your hotel.

    Hello, guys! I’m so happy to have stumbled onto your blog; it’s a rich source of information for my upcoming trip to the Balkan. Amazingly, we have an almost similar itinerary in Turkey! Mine’s shorter though so I’ll be pressed for time.

    I’d like to particularly ask how you purchased tickets for the overnight bus trip from Pamukkale going to Cappadocia. Did you reserve in advance or did you just buy it on the same day of the trip?

    I’d like to maximise my day trip in Pamukkale so the last bus trip would be perfect for me. Been trying to search the internet for a good source of bus timetable but have yet to see one. Any tip / suggestion you could share would be most appreciated.

    Cheers!

    Hi JC, we booked and paid for our tickets in advance via the SUHA TURIZM WEBSITE. Other bus operators offer overnight trips from Denizli to Goreme as well but their websites didn’t work for some reason so we wound up booking with Suha Turizm. We were 100% satisfied and would highly recommend them to anyone. Hope that helps and have an awesome trip! 🙂
