We stayed just 50 m from Café Kazanci in Istanbul and tried several times to have brunch, lunch and dinner there, but they always said it was closed (although doors were open and the staff was there with friends...). Seemed more like a hangout for their friends and family than a restaurant. The last evening, we were finally let in... More

Nice place to eat for reasonable money. Food was very good. Like for a cafe, there is a bit limited variety of cakes (only 3 during weekend)

This is the second time I visit this place and I regret not reviewing it before; Is one of the best little places in Istanbul and referring to the value for money has no competitors in my opinion; The owners are nice and very friendly, they care about each guest and explain each dish; The restaurant is located in a...

Nothing amazing, but a fairly tasty meal for a very cheap price. I would visit again. The cakes are very good (we had the tiramisu with our tea after dinner.) Worth the visit for half decent meal on a budget - rather this than a McDonalds.

We ordered the homemade lunch special which was excellent. We got a soup, bread, a main dish with rice or salad and a drink each for 27 lira (around 10 euro). This was exceptional value. The food was filling, authentic and full of flavor. I would highly recommend a visit to this quite modern and busy cafe, it is well... More

I enjoyed my meal. But I found the menu very western. I wanted to try their homemade specials but they didn't have any that day so I ended up having their Auvergne pasta which was nice. Why I put 3 stars is because I went because I saw that it had such good reviews,but was disappointed that I felt it... More

This is a good place to find non touristic food. The staff is really nice and spoke English really well. I had a homemade menu that came with a main course plus salad and rice at 10 liras!! The portion was really generously served. Strongly recommend the mosaic cake (3.5 liras )

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.
