Menu offers great variety - we tried numerous things including the alfredo fettuccini which was delicious. Dessert range is pretty decent.. traditional Turkish desserts like kunafa as well as waffles etc. The ice cream is worth a try.. made with goats milk! They have multiple locations around Istanbul, making it really convenient!

This is a good cafe. It's a good landmark, we decide to meet here because of convenience but we end staying here till the end of our meeting. We had coffee, snacks and satisfied our sweet tooth

We stayed in the Kent hotel and walked down the street to find somewhere to eat breakfast. Great coffee and friendly service. The lentil soup was perfect for the ice cold weather outside. For decadent desserts and home made ice cream (diabetic options available too!), it is well worth a visit!

After enjoying a beautiful walk on Istiklal Cadessi, eating various types of baklava and icecream seemed like a good idea. And we were right! It was the best decision we could make. The only problem was the impossibility to choose only few dishes hahaha. The lucky thing is that they all were delicious, so there is no need to worry!

cozy place in the middle of the walking area in taksim, the service is quick, the tea is hot and the staff is very helpful with choosing your favourite sweets. unfortunately the coconut stuff i wanted that day was not available. Toilets located on the higher floor are very nice.

Neighbourhood Profile
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
