Every town has them. Those places that make you feel safe and comfortable because it just feels like they've been around forever.

A Short Walk From Kayaköy To Cold Water Bay – It’s Worth Your Effort

We've been running a lot over winter - strange how it pushes other loves in your life into the background without you noticing.

Return To Paşa Kebap – It Had To Happen Sometime

You fancied a pide, you went to Paşa Kebap. You wanted lahmacun, you went to Paşa Kebap. You wanted a takeaway - or even delivery service - you went to Paşa Kebap. This was back in the late '90s. A time when eateries in Fethiye weren't nearly as abundant as they are now and what we had were just a … [Read more...]

Fethiye March News – Spring Has Sprung

It's that time again where we look back on what's happened during the previous month. Our Fethiye news for March is packed, as usual, and, for once, it's a tad late on purpose.

Kırçiçeği Cafe, Fethiye – Happy Fish Sandwich Familiarity

This is the tale of how we came to be regulars at Kırçiçeği Cafe in Fethiye's Dispanser.

Baba Fırın Cafe, Taşyaka – Where Local, Regional And International Snacks Meet

Every morning at approximately 4:30am, the lights of Baba Fırın Cafe in Taşyaka are switched on and the ovens heated.

Autumn News From Fethiye – From Hectic To A Slower Pace

Yes, 'hectic,' is definitely the right word. If you were waiting for our October monthly news roundup, you'll know it was non-existent. That was the hectic part.

September In Fethiye – Summer Becomes Autumn

I don't know why we keep thinking, "Ahh, this summer is relatively quiet, for us."
