KAHVE (meaning café in Turkish) is an Anatolian-inspired camp serving coffee and offering coffee-ground readings daily from 10am-2pm. We are a stylistic sanctuary for wary travelers on their journey throughout the desert. Find shade among plush pillows, pithy lounges and Turkish lanterns. Enjoy the atmosphere and ambient music while admiring the intricate art pieces. Find a safe haven in one of our Bedouin-styled cabanas to relax and enjoy your beverage.

KAHVE is a sanctuary to provide relief from the hustle and bustle of the stimulating playa. Come by anytime you need a place to chill, relax, take a nap.. or briefly lose yourself in an Anatolian dream.
