Rustic Pearl is located on the busy Crown Street, standing alongside other hip looking cafes. Rustic Pearl is a very small cafe, when my friend and I arrived the interior was already packed with people so we were given the bigger table outside. The problem with sitting outside was that the footpath was on a slant so I felt like I was leaning back the whole time and at times I thought our food would slide off the table.
We waited quite a long time for a food- a bit over half an hr. The waiter did come to us to tell us that the gözlemes will take 10 minutes and as we waited we did get a little impatient and we asked again where our food was, which we were told it would be another 10- 15 minutes. I did realise that the table next to us got there food quite quickly and we arrived roughly the same time as them.
