I have been at several places in Istanbul and tried different desserts- although I always come back to Sultan Café when it comes to eat küneffe. I strongely recommend this place for their desserts.

I always come here for my kűnefe. I think its one of the best i tried in istanbul. Definatly in the hagia sofia area. One more important thing is that its always nice,warm and crispy.

The location is amazing.. surrounded by all the historical landmarks - Ayasophya and Blue Mosque The food is also great. One thing though, you need to be specific (point to the items on the menu) to get exactly what you want. Language being the barrier,...still amazing 😊More

We waited 40 minutes for 3 drinks. It was pretty quiet so no excuse. I can only guess they get enough passing trade so they just don’t care.

Sultan Cafe & Restaurant is a good place to chill in Sultanahmet area while you enjoy a leisurely cup of coffee and Turkish food.

We suppose to drink some coffee here as it is just in front of German Fountain in Sultanahmet Square. But is about lunch time, so we order Chicken Wing with rice and Lamb with rice. Both are served with pita (wheat pan cake). Before that...they serve pita with some dipping. The food is quite good, simple and good taste. Recommend to have seat, relax after walking in this historic location.More

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
