Cafe Anatolia

by Maureen McCabe on October 26, 2008

Cafe Anatolia We went to Cafe Anatolia just before 8:00 Saturday night (OSU – Penn State game) and the place was deserted.  It is a tiny restaurant, there were two other couples there dining.

Cafe Anatolia is on the far north side of Columbus, in the Worthington area (north-east of Worthington, north of 270.) The restaurant’s address is 1097 Worthington Galena Road, Worthington Ohio 43085

The local Turkish restaurant, Cafe Anatolia has a website.  It’s an outdated website that does not do the restaurant justice but how important is a restaurant website??

Don’t believe the menu prices…. at least the dinner menu online is probably two generations old. The excellent Shepherd Salad is now $9.99 for the large.  The large salad should be labeled a huge.  We split one and I had the leftover salad for breakfast.

According to the sign in the window the lunch buffet is a dollar less expensive now than it was on the menu on the Cafe Anatolia menu on their website today, at $6.99.

This is probably the 4th or 5th time I have visited Cafe Anatolia for dinner.  This is the first time I’ve tried the Shepherds Salad (Coban Salatasi I believe ) but I could have had the same entree each time for all I know…  I do kind of get in a rut.  The entree pictured here is Doner Kebab… gyro meat.  I should have a ~ over the n in Doner….

Cafe Anatolia is never a fast place but the service is always very good.  Personally I believe Cafe Anatolia is just set at a different pace.

“but how important is a restaurant website??”

That’s an interesting and fascinating point. I’m never interested in the site of a good restaurant.

I can’t believe I haven’t tried this. I knew about it and just can’t remember it when dinner time arrives. I look forward to it, thanks.

you know some restaurant websites have great photos…and I like looking at the menus. The best restaurant website’s aremostly the higher end places but you can’t get the smell, taste atmosphere etc. from a menu, a picture of the place, the address, a map… the local food blogger’s sites make me more hungry and inquisitive about the experience than the restaurant websites because they write in a way that I can taste and smell the food.

Cafe Anatolia is little and UGLY and it is in an ugly strip mall but the food is great. I have not tried the Turkish place at Easton, but I have heard good things about it too.
