After enjoying Wits Art Museum, it may be a nice idea to visit this cafe. The key aspect of Galata Bakery is the Turkish cuisine. Try mouthwatering burgers, menemen and turkey. A number of visitors of this place note that good simit, Turkish delight and baklava are offered here. Get your meal started with delicious iced coffee, tea or milkshakes.

This spot is well known for its great service and friendly staff, that is always ready to help you. Prices are low for the quality you get. Enjoy the charming atmosphere here. This cafe has got 5 on the Trip site.

My favourite place in braamfontein.
Service was a bit slow due to ordering from the lunch menu early in the morning. But the meal was worth the wait. And the service was excellent. After the pasta dish was too spicy, they swapped it out for another dish free of charge.
Popped into Galata Bakery & Coffee on Grove Square at 87 Juta Street, Braamfontein for a Türk kahvesi (Turkish coffee) and stayed for a Pogača Burger and a Simit Pide for breakfast. Can you imagine?
Two Turkish coffees and a Çay (Turkish black tea) later I got to chat to the owner Savas Daskan and his son Mustafa about moving to South Africa. Food quality is most important and they will not compromise on ingredients or taste. The mum still makes the traditional desserts - like baklava and Sütlaç (a divine Turkish Rice pudding).
They have two young black managers that speak Turkish, as they attended a local school that has Turkish as a compulsory subject till grade 11. Very interesting indeed.
They are open Monday to Monday as Mustafa giggles - 7 days a week from 07:00 to 20:00. Keep in mind Sundays are popular for breakfast. If you go tell Mustafa I sent you. You may get a complimentary Cay.
I will certainly be back to try everything on the menu and especially the Kanafah (a specialty Middle Eastern cheese pastry soaked in sugar-based syrup), that they plan to import from Turkey. A batch was flown in yesterday for testing but I missed it.
Having been to Turkey 3 times and eaten all these dishes before, I rate Galata highly.
