Things to do in Adana – Go out for Sunday Brunch
One of our favorite things to do in Adana is to get out on a Sunday morning for a nice lazy brunch. There are many places in Adana where you can have brunch. The general format involves multiple tables with a generous selection of cheeses, olives, jellies, jams and honey, bread, pastries, some type of meat like Sucuk (Turkish beef sausage), boiled eggs, omelet bar, fresh veggies, sigara böreği , orange juice, limitless tea and nescafe, some cereals, yogurt and some cold salads. Think the typical Turkish hotel breakfast on steroids.
If you’re new to Adana, you may think that this doesn’t sound very breakfastey. I encourage you to embrace it and enjoy the variety available in Turkish brunches and expand the borders of what you consider breakfast food. I’ve grown to love olives with my breakfast and even an occasional tomato and cucumber.
At a Turkish brunch, you can expect a relaxed atmosphere and no expectation that you’d clear out of your table in a certain time frame. This is meant to be a relaxed time to enjoy a newspaper, a book or company with friends while snacking, nibbling and drinking Tea.
You can expect brunch to run from about 9:30 – 1:00 at most places.
My favorite place for brunch is Ekotepe and my wife’s favorite place is Pastabahçe. You can’t go wrong with either place. Other places to check out would be The Hilton, Mado, Kaktus Park or Bosanlı Hotel.
