Best kahve and sisha we've had in our 3 weeks in Turkey. It is also a popular chill out area for locals (and some hipster tourists) to sisha. (So it kinda feels like a gas chamber as well, esp if you do not smoke)

Went there with my mom and she was even more happy than me. This is a very calm and super authentic, old place near Grand Bazaar. You take tea and nargile and just chill there. Shisha, BTW, was really great. Atmosphere too. Loved little golden...More
