Nice place with restaurant and coffee chains around. I ended up there after walking form Sultanahemat square lol. Bridge and Tower in between and breaks And took the metro back. Beware of the fake perfume Sellers. Ignore them. No WiFi for NonTurkish at Starbucks.

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
