A Turkish Adventure: Lunch at Nars Hotel
On our last day in Cesme we visited a beautiful boutique beach hotel and cafe by the sea - The Nars Hotel in Ilica.
We enjoyed coffee and a delicious lunch of 3 different mezze, including hummus, mucver [fried shredded zucchini], and pickled artichokes.
We also ordered a smoothie bowl. Once I saw it on the menu - gasp! I knew I wanted to try it.
The berry-good smoothie had a base of blended strawberries, blueberries and creamy yogurt. The toppings included chopped papaya, mulberries, chia seeds and crunchy pepitas. yum.
Keaton’s sister suggested this spot, and it did not disappoint!
We were able to take a brief tour of the hotel's interior before relaxing in their outdoor cafe. As you can see it had the most gorg views overlooking the sea and the private beach pier, complete with lounge chairs and umbrellas.
The cafe's atmosphere was cool and comfortable with luxurious white couches, fresh flowers and plants. We made ourselves feel just like we were at home :)
What a way to end our time in Cesme!
