Turkish coffee or Turkish tea.. you'll love them both. The service is great. The prices are a bit high, but it's ok.

After a tiring walk in the Grand Bazaar we ended up at Fes Cafe - thanks to Lonely Planet. Small place with nice ambiance. Loved the fresh juices - extremely refreshing - tried the winter up!

We visited Fes Cafe after the Grand Bazaar, without having read the any reviews. We loved the fresh salads and the cold yogurt drink, as well as the decor. Great vegetarian options. We found the staff quiet unfriendly though.

Fes Cafe is a gem - I discovered them at their location in the Grand Bazaar, but both their locations are great. They have wonderful dishes made with fresh ingredients that are delicious, refreshing, and healthy. Everything from sandwiches to local treats, they've got the works. Their staff is super nice, friendly, and a lot of fun. Get a Turkish... More

If one is inside the Grand Bazaar, it pays to exit through the Nuruosmaniye Mosque Gate. There is a lovely stroll passing by the old and splendid mosque. And as you approach the Nuruosmaniye Street which is a 100% pedestrian street you can feel exotic Istanbul at its best. As you enter the street, on the second lane on your... More
