It's in a quiet neighborhood. Big space and tables for friends gathering having breakfast/brunch. Great food ingredients and quality. Traditional Black tea was refilled by staff again and again. We went back everyday during our trip.

Get the Van Breakfast, it comes with everything. They have amazing clotted cream (kaymak) and cheese from Van, plus a number of other goodies. The place is always crowded so don't be deterred.

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

You could take one menu for 2 if you are reasonable :). It would cost ~30-40TL ( ~10€), waiter may complain a bit. If you take to menu which you can't finish (from my point of view it will cost ~60TL (~20€)
