Our 2nd time here and this place never disappoints. Almost everyone has their supreme breakfast (even at 3 pm). The variety is immense and apart from boiled eggs all of it is vegetarian. After loads of kebabs on a Turkish holiday, this is a relief....More

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€)
