Must visit! A cosy cafe that brings you joy and excitement! We randomly walked into this beautiful place for a coffee after dinner and woohoo this is beyond what I expected! The staff were friendly, taking time to explain what differences the Turkish coffee ranges where I've never had one! The home - made rose water Turkish delight was more than a delight, so yummy so good that I'm planning to come back for a tray! Definitely coming back for more!

I have been coming to Levanter since the day it opened. Carlisle St is not short of cafes and if you like indifferent service, coffee made by stressed and sulky hipsters, noise, crowds and trashy music, there are plenty of choices. If not, go to Levanter. The owners Sam and his mum Marcelle remembered my name from my first visit; they always greet you with a friendly smile and they always have time for a chat. It’s always quiet, spacious and tranquil inside with a huge variety of healthy and interesting food to choose from – it’s such a welcome relief from the usual pannini and slider cliches. I love my Saturday morning Turkish coffee served on a silver platter with a Turkish delight – like a little slice of the Levant itself. It’s little touches and rituals like this, and of course the food and warm hospitality, that make this a special place and keep you coming back.
