A Trip into Anatolia
According to its owners, Café Gitana is a place that links Montreal and Anatolia, the cradle of civilization. There is a rich culture, exotic gastronomy and the warmth of the Mediterranean. The large room is full of rugs and kilims from Turkey, beautiful embroidered cushions on which you can dream of a past life as a Pacha or Sultan.

Take Time to Smoke
Café Gitana is one of the rare places in Montreal where you can try a narghile, a large water pipe invented many centuries ago in the Ottoman empire. You can smoke a paste flavoured with mint or rose, vanilla, caramel or any imaginable fruit… even dates! Narghiles leave behind a white smoke in the sweet smelling air.

An Exotic Menu
The menu offers mainly specialties from the greater Mediterranean regions. Amongst others there are paninis, Kurdish tea, baklavas, Turkish raki, loukoum, Armenian pizza, Viennese coffee, puff pastries with spinach and feta cheese, Greek ouzo, Turkish coffee, tiramisu and of course mint tea. There is also a small space allocated to international classics, like Chinese and Japanese teas, salads and sandwiches, Brazilian or Spanish coffees, alcoholic cocktails, chocolate mousse as well as beer, both on tap and by the bottle.

Regional Music
The final touch is given by the loud speakers which constantly play music, anything from Turkish, Kurdish, Armenian, Greek, Gypsy, Bulgarian, Romanian or anything from the Balkans. Some evening, guitar and singing concerts take place, or even movie showings… it’s only a matter of time before you’ll fall in love with this ancient culture.
