I love Gozleme

I was ‘a bit gobsmacked’ on the weekend. I scrolled through some blog posts of our local community group. In one post this bloke was ‘having a go’ at the lady that runs our local cafe. He was ‘banging on’ about how his pie was soggy. Oh ‘for Pete’s sake’ it’s a pie. Talk about ‘making a mountain out of a molehill’. Why ‘make a song and dance about it’? Maybe he just didn’t want to pay and made up some ‘cock and bull story’ to ‘get a freebie’. Wouldn’t be the first time. 

I have a great relationship with this cafe. Why? It is Gozleme cooked right in front of you. It is gourmet breakfast wraps to go with your Sacred Grounds coffee. It is the location. I often meander up the wharf to admire the city views with my coffee.

Wonderful Persian creations just like their owner at this place. Food so good. If she gives a recommendation you should just go with it. Yum!

Meander up the wharf

So back to that pie…’Talk about a storm in a teacup’. Just hope the blokes negative remarks ‘get blown out of the water’ and she doesnt lose any business. Covid lockdown was bad enough.
