It serves an excellent traditional Turkish breakfast. My wife and I ordered breakfast that's supposed to be for one person and we couldn't finish it. And their shakshuka with cheese is a must to try.

It's the best breakfast you can find in Istanbul. The price is too cheap for such quality. The location is 10 minutes walk from Taksim square or 5 minutes from Istiklal caddesi.

Really enjoyed my breakfast here. It specialises in food from the Van region of the country, so you'll find a few things where which might be new to you from other places. Go with a big appetite.

A really yummy breakfast. Get the Turkish breakfast for two and go nuts! I would also recommend the scrambled eggs with tomatoes and mushroom.

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening

You could take one menu for 2 if you are reasonable :). It would cost ~30-40TL ( ~10€), waiter may complain a bit. If you take to menu which you can't finish (from my point of view it will cost ~60TL (~20€)
