Alaçatı has a beautiful new bookstore & café.
We have been longing for sincere and genuine places to bring happiness & delight to secluded streets of Alaçatı, and Sofilya is sure to offer all that.
Miss Başak, the owner, is a documentary filmmaker who was born in Izmir. She lived & worked in Istanbul for 8 years followed by 10 years in the UK. After that, she returned to her hometown to create this little wonderland.
Sofilya is a bookstore and café that brings literature and culinary delicacies prepared from local ingredients with clean crops together. Organizing talks on literature & nutrition, Sofilya promotes conscious living and consumption concepts.
You can find a selection of books categorized under original names such as ‘Local Masters’, ‘Always Memories’, ‘On the Way to Beach’ and ‘Natural Living & Eating’. It is also a multi-purpose place where you can buy natural and organic peanut butter, vinegar & tarhana products.
With her blue eyes & her warm smile Başak welcomes her guests and this place sure does feel like home.
Sofilya is open daily between 10 AM – 10 PM (siesta between 13:00-15:00 😊).
