Turkish breakfast at Common Man Coffee Roasters

We love the Turkish breakfast here – a soft-boiled egg wrapped in phyllo, crispy feta, fresh veggies, and pumpkin hummus with pita. It’s a mix of healthy and indulgent – a perfect start to your day. And their flat white coffee is just what you need to get going.
