A hearty breakfast composed of the region’s best offerings has always been a big deal in Turkey and the summer city of Antalya is no stranger to this culinary tradition. Various varieties of cheeses, tomatoes from the garden, endless rounds of Turkish tea, and being surrounded by nature or overlooking a view of the sea describe some of our favorites below.

1. The Big Man

Bistro, Cafe, Turkish

Don’t be fooled by the rather peculiar name of this breakfast spot—The Big Man in Lara is the only place that offers an excellent breakfast with a beautiful sea view. Enjoy the full spread of the classic Turkish breakfast including cheeses, nuts and dried fruits, tomato and cucumber salad, clotted cream and honey, and olives (just to name a few), with Antalya’s blue sea and stunning mountains in the background.
