It was 2015, the tiny cozy breakfast room with four tables was enlarged towards my backyard garden and the shop next to my building. My aim was to do just a decent “good” work. Good food, good breakfast, good ambiance. Like a living organism, the cafe has grown up, has always been “GOOD”. My friends who support me by often have come to Faik Pasha Cafe are the witness of how I’ve been working hard, trying to be patient. Bombs exploded, tourism stopped, economic crises and security problems made our people not to go out of their homes.
