Balikcilar Kahvesi which means fishermen’s café house in English is really a place where fishermen meet chat and spend their spare times. The place is also loved by locals as well because of its location and prices. The place is located right across the big harbor where a spectacular view occurs when there are cruise ships docked.
The entrance is from the stairs at the right of the fish market. Don’t expect any luxury, but enjoy the atmosphere. Fishermen’s café is open 24 hours. Breakfast is served in Turkish style, and Gozleme (Turkish style pan cake) is worth trying. You may bring your own bakery stuff and buy the drinks only from the place or you can by fresh fish from downstairs and make it cooked at the fishermen’s café for a reasonable price.
