Decent, stylish cafe

Stopped here for lunch after a morning in the Grand Bazaar. Cafe is pretty cool, and as other reviews have stated, a nice calm atmposphere in the middle of a very busy, frenetic area. Food was pretty decent if not amazing (I had a falafel wrap), pricing reasonable, service not bad.

Having successfully negotiated both the Spice market and then The Grand Bazaar, we emerged at the Fes cafe. A lovely lunch in a peaceful side street, just the ticket.

Great cafe in a lovely lane way near the Grand Bazaar. The Turkish coffee served with Turkish Delight was really good, as was the baklava. You can sit inside or outside. They also serve food but it was only a coffee and baklava stop for me.

We have stumbled across fes Café while strolling around- it looked beautifully furnished, so wie gave it a try. We liked it soo much, the fabulous interior, the shy & sweet owners, that we came back. Drinks around 5-10 TL, Food from 10-25 TL. We tried Omlette, Burger, Chickpea stew- all was delicious! We loved the place and recommend it-... More

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.
