Sirius is a new cafe on Beulah Street that offers homemade food inspired by Turkey.
Istanbul is said to have the world’s oldest cafe culture, and Cuneyt Yazicioglu wants to bring some flavours from his home city to Harrogate.
Dishes at Sirius include kumpir, which is a Turkish jacket potato with a wide range of toppings to choose from.
Homemade sweets include the pistachio-flavored baklava. Turkish coffee and tea are also available.

Mr Yazicioglu has lived in North Yorkshire for 24 years and previously ran a Turkish restaurant in Ripon.
Pictures of famous Turkish singers, actors and comedians adorn the walls of the cafe, which used to be a card shop and is next door to Costa.
It’s the ‘Turkish breakfast’ that takes top billing on the menu. It’s a twist on the English breakfast and includes feta cheese, olives, Turkish pepperoni and honey.
As well as offering Turkish treats, the kitchen serves English breakfast, sandwiches, pizza, paninis and omelettes.
Sirius is open from 9am to 5pm seven days a week at 9 Beulah Street, Harrogate.
