In Selcuk, Turkey, my BFF and I stayed for one night at a small, but cosy inn called Urkmez Hotel (no star). It's written on the Internet that the buffet breakfast is served at its topmost floor daily, offering a panoramic view of the town. The inn is manned by friendly and polite staff who'll make you feel at home.
While the buffet spread definitely couldn't beat that offered in big hotels, I really enjoyed the food that possessed all the home-cooked qualities. Pika's advice: I would really recommend this inn when you're visiting Selcuk.
The French toast that was warm and not greasy went absolutely well with the amazing cheese spread on its left. I went back and forth to stuff myself with that cheese spread like crazy. The pickled items were refreshing, and equally delicious were the lightly-seasoned slices of hard-boiled eggs.
Pastry & Cake
The simit (Turkish bread encrusted with sesame seeds) was nicely warm and crispy, while the slice of bread was soft. The semolina cake was not only adequately sweet, but also moist.
Milk Coffee & Tea
A cup of milk coffee, together with another of tea, was a must-have on a windy morning.
Immediately after breakfast, we went to Basilica of St. John. As we were exploring its grounds, I came across a solitary tortoise among the flowers. Could it be the guardian of the ruins? :O
