Eat This Now: Turkish Coffee and Delight at Cafe Besos

The stylish cafe offers specialty coffees, a large selection of wine and cocktails, and lunch bites

The Ottoman Empire with a side of Turkish delight

The next time you’re on Whyte Avenue and want to sit down for a great cup of coffee, consider Cafe Besos. Located on 83rd Avenue, it combines a coffee shop and wine bar under one roof. The cafe is adjacent to Lyon Restaurant — you can even order the dishes from the restaurant’s menu here. What makes it stand out is not just the stunning, urban chic decor — but also the presentation of its coffee.

One of Cafe Besos’s specialties is the Ottoman Empire — a twist on the Turkish coffee, with chocolate drops and cream, served in an ornamented cup with a side of either Turkish delight or a biscuit. Despite its strength, this coffee doesn’t possess the same distinct bitterness as the regular espresso. Once you taste it, you’ll want to savour every drop, including every bit of the Turkish delight. If you’re looking for a small, but filling pastry to go with your coffee, try the banana chocolate loaf.
