Square Meal Review of Olly Bongo's Anatolian Café Bistro ?

Handy for the nearby university, this small and unassuming café is easy to overlook for 11 months of the year – but not in August, when it’s bang opposite the temporary Edinburgh Fringe venues erected annually in Bristo Square. The interior is brightly fitted out with colourful fabrics, yellow walls, decorative plates and knick-knacks – although the folksy Anatolian kitsch hasn’t been overdone. A welcoming vibe prevails, and the kitchen deals in hearty home-cooked flavours. All-day breakfasts come in various international versions, or you could stick with bagels, omelettes, pancakes or porridge, backed up by fruit smoothies for the healthy brigade or assorted cakes and pastries for the sugar junkies. The more interesting mains have a Turkish flavour – chicken shish kebab, lamb koftas, mezze or vegetable moussaka – although you can get burgers, baked potatoes, sandwiches and salads too.
