Cafe Orchid is a great little Turkish cafe with Mediterranean staples and unique dishes alike.

Hospitality: When you walk in the door you are greeted with a friendly smile. You have a choice to sit in an enclosed outdoor patio, inside or during the spring and summer fully outdoors.

Service: Generally the service is very good and the staff extremely attentive. There are a mix of Turkish waiters and non-Turks. Having lived in Turkey I have developed a rapport with some of the Turkish staff and have found this to enhance the experience.

Food: Again, there are a mix of Mediterranean staples and unique creations on the menu. The flavors remind me of the food I got on the streets of Istanbul, Ankara or Adana. Get a sandwich if you go for lunch, or try one of the dinner entrees in the evening. Don't ignore desert! The desert portions are small so you won't feel guilty but the flavors are awesome.

Price: The cost is very reasonable. Cafe Orchid is a family run establishment in a family neighborhood.
