Fabulous

The Cafe, which started in 1864 has lasted until now for a definite reason, superb costumer service and beautifully crafted foods to satisfy your sweet tooth.

This shop had a wonderful dessert selection! The staff was friendly and offered samples of their delicious spread. Picked up a few souvenirs of coffee, hot chocolate, and Turkish delight to bring back home. A lovely stop!

If you want to taste the best lokum in Istanbul ? Visit the main store in serkici or the new shop in taksim square because you can find this kind of lokum any where else , try it and let us know you're opinion :)

According to the Lonely Planet guidebook, this was the place to purchase Turkish coffee to bring home. When we stopped in and saw all of the wonderful desserts that are offered, we decided to sit down for awhile and sample some treats. I had a very delicious rice pudding that was too big for one person - it would have... More

The green Baklava and Keneffe are heavenly. Have them with the Turkish coffee or black tea and you are good to go walking for miles in Istanbul . We did not gain weight in spite of the daily ritual. Be prepared with few Turkish words because no one speaks English. Enjoy!

Staying in Grand Bazaar

Neighborhood Profile
Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighborhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.
