Manzara Cafe – The real panorama

Manzara cafe is located in ILDIR – Cesme where you can enjoy one of the best landscapes and views of the other side of Cesme. Manzara cafe is renewed in 2012 so it is now ready to host it’s guests with an updated furniture. Manzara Cafe founded on 1994 is serving valued customers for 18 years now.

The main delicacy for Manzara is famous for Lokma (a Turkish traditional desert, lokma is a kind of fried-dough pastry made of deep fried dough soaked in sugar syrup or honey and cinnamon, and sometimes sprinkled with sesame) which you should definitely try if you are into deserts even if not. It was one of the best we have tried in its category (Izmir Lokma)

Eatinizmir, also tried Gözleme (Gözleme is a savoury traditional Turkish handmade and hand-rolled pastry. Fresh pastry is rolled out, filled and sealed, then cooked over a griddle) which has several options from spinach to potato or from white cheese to kasseri cheese. We enjoyed a combination of Potato and Kasseri Cheese which is quite outstanding.

Manzara Cafe also referring to its name Manzara (Scenery) has a great view of Ildir bay. It is not located in a heavily tourist populated zones of Cesme like Ilica, Cesme Centrum or Alacati but it has a really nice atmosphere that you can enjoy. By the way do not forget to enjoy the sunset if you happen to be there around sunset.  Manzara cafe is serving the customers on every weekend from April and everyday from June till October.
