“Gorgeous café with country chic decor & water views. The menu is a superb local Tasmanian/Turkish fusion. I recommend the zucchini/haloumi Borek (Turkish Yufka pastry parcel) & the lamb Borek with paprika butter & yoghurt. Affordable prices, kids welcome & plenty of pram space. Outdoor courtyard, welcoming staff & Turkish cotton linen for sale. Take a stroll in the thriving & historic village of Franklin while you are there! Open 9am – 5pm Fri – Sun. ”
