Bursa may be known for its vast amount of UNESCO World Heritage Sites that stem from its days as one of the former capitals of the Ottoman Empire, but it’s also a modern city with its fair share of great cafes. Check out some of the best below.

Koza Han

Dating back to the 15th century, the Koza Caravanserai is a beautifully renovated marketplace that is always colourful and lively. Sit at one of the many cafes and sip on some Turkish coffee while taking in the beauty of the historic facades.

Fidan Han

If you’re not a big fan of crowds, then head to this quieter historic caravanserai that is just as beautiful but not as well known. During weekdays, you can enjoy some Turkish tea and coffee in the courtyard, along with a bit of peace and quiet.

Kitap Evi Otel

Kitap Evi Otel is a beautiful Ottoman-era house turned boutique hotel that also has one of the most beautiful cafes in the city. Think fine china sets, antique furniture and a seat in the garden or by the fireplace for a drink or something to eat.


With a history that dates back more than 150 years, a lot of Bursa’s locals have been sipping their tea and coffee at this lovely cafe for a long time. Even though it’s located in the heart of the city, Mahfel still manages to retain a peaceful feel in its garden or by the fireplace in winter.

Fayton Cafe

Located inside the Tofaş Museum of Cars and Anatolian Carriages, this cafe makes full use of its beautiful garden where you can drink coffee under the swaying trees. In winter, the fireplace is a popular place to get cozy with a hot beverage.


Open since 1958, Özgen is a real classic among the Bursa locals who like to come here to drink their coffee and tea as well as smoke hookah and play backgammon. With quite the modern interior, this cafe also has a great garden with a fountain for those hot summer days.

İncir Cafe Mudanya

Located in the town of Mudanya (part of the Bursa province) İncir Cafe is pretty exceptional because it’s right by the sea, which means you’ll be breathing in plenty of fresh sea air on their terrace. Make sure to check out the souvenir shop on the ground floor.

İnkaya Çınarı

This sycamore tree, on the road to Uludağ, is as old as the former Ottoman Empire and is one of Bursa’s must-see spots. Of course, having a cup of coffee while gazing at the tree is also a great experience.
