We did a Culinary walking tour for the day. We stopped here for breakfast. Now I can't remember what we had but do remember that we ate huge amounts and everything was very tasty. I have been elsewhere but certainly not as tasty.

Was able to treat myself amongst the many kebabs that I could only afford with a nice lunch in a wonderful neighborhood of Istanbul. The cuisine is unlike anything you may have ever had and if you find yourself hungry and in the area you should stop by this wonderful restaurant.

The best organic breakfast I ever had - definitely the best in Turkey. The oven hot bread was the best ad-on. There was big variety of items and everything was at its best

Have been there once with my family. Although we wanted to share a breakfast set with few additions, they didn't make it any problem. The waiter was very warm and friendly. The taste of the food was delicious. I would recommend to everyone who would like to see the variety within the Turkish breakfast culture!

Went for menemen and went back again for the menemen. This is a great little restaurant, friendly and kind on your pocket. It was recommended by a local and I see why. It's unassuming, has a family-run feel to it and is no-nonsense good food.

We have tried breakfasts in many places in Istanbul and this would be in the top 3 places. Will definitely return.

Staying in Beyoglu

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.
