Kaktüs Kahvesi is just brilliant! Just waiting with a whetted appetite to eat there again. Love it... and the moggies! :)) Quirky, individual, comfortable.... all these things plus the chef is an artist. The atmosphere is warm and pure delight!

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
