We're not surprised this vegetarian cafe has a loyal following. Its interior is comfortable and stylish, with a glassed courtyard and bright colour scheme, and its food is 100% homemade, fresh and varied. Dishes are either vegetarian or vegan and are available in small and large sizes. There's a small cover charge for the home-baked bread and herb butter.

'Zencefil' means 'ginger' in Turkish, and the cafe makes its own ginger beer and ginger ale. You can also order wine by the glass and fresh limonata (lemonade) served with Absolut vodka.
