Sunday Lunch at Tim’s Cafe/Bar, Ozankoy


 By Margaret Sheard …

Sunday is always a nice relaxing day and what better than to go out and have a leisurely Sunday Lunch.  There are many restaurants which offer a traditional British Sunday Roast and we were aware that the newly opened Tim’s Cafe/Bar in Ozankoy were offering their first Sunday Lunch on 29th April, so that was our chosen venue.

Chris and myself, along with my sister, went along to Tim’s Cafe and as it was a warm and sunny day we opted to sit outside.  The menu was a main meal and dessert and the choice was Beef, Pork and Nut Roast.  I was very impressed that at last someone has decided to cater for vegetarians, which is very lacking in North Cyprus.

Between us we chose the beef, pork and nut roast and when the meals arrived we were delighted to see nice large roast potatoes and plenty of vegetables, together with all the other trimmings, and separate gravy so we could use as much or as little as we preferred.   We were all pretty full but relented to a dessert and chose Carrot Cake which was served on its own, or with cream or custard.  It was delicious.

The 2-course meal was 40TL, which was excellent value for the large servings of both the main course and dessert.   We were all very full and it was a very enjoyable meal, so we look forward to many more in the future.

We had already sampled a breakfast at Tim’s Cafe, and again there is a vegetarian option.  At the moment Tim offers breakfast and lunch menus but the bar is open into the evening as well.

Tim’s Cafe/Bar is a much needed type of venue in the Ozankoy area as a meeting place for expats and locals alike, it is very tastefully furnished, with excellent service and good food. As well as the large inside area, there is outside dining at the front of the building and soon there will also be an outside dining area at the rear.  There is also a good area of off-road parking.
