Fantastic experience

My wife and I were tired of walking and sought to have a some rest and a dessert. We were lucky to have this place. We enjoyed Konafa and mestika mahalbia with tea. The atmosphere was great. It was a fantastic experience and the best in 7 visits to Istanbul.

Hard by the Hippodrome and the Hagia Sophia and the Roman Cistern, Hafiz Mustafa 1864 is the place to go to rest your feet and enjoy a relaxing cup of tea or coffee along with a choice of outstanding Turkish pastries. And the clientele is a lively mix of locals and tourists.

Best turkish coffee I've ever had in my life and what a great staff. They are still carrying the old ottoman style which is perfect. Will be back next summer

Great location. We came across this place by accident as we walked down from the mosques, Topkapi Palace and cistern. We were walking to Galata bridge and this was a great place to stop. Authentic Turkish cuisine and for any one with a sweet tooth, try the baklava, wow! There are so many types of Turkish Delight, tried a lot... More

The Kunafa was out of this world. The other traditional sweet (baklava) was nice but not on the same level as the Kunafa unfortunately. Very useful travel packing for any desserts you would like to fly back home with you!

Near the Basilica Sisten, you could walk past without noticing it, but go inside for amazing baklava, Turkish delight, and cakes. The apple tea is amazing , and when selecting the food choose the selection plates of baklava, Turkish delight and cakes, amazing.

A very nice place for buying Turkish sweets in style. Good service with tasting available to customers as you walk in. Friendly staff. Try the rice milk desserts, a meal in itself!

WOW. The selection of Turkish delights is out of this world. Take a load off your feet. Sit down, have some coffee and sweets. For us, a wonderful moment of respite before continuing to see more of the sights.
