Small coffee house in the centre of Istanbul near the Galata bridge. It is more for young people looking for a simple place for chatting.

I am on a mission to try, if not all but most of the coffee shops that are located at Karakoy. Mums was the first one that I ended up visiting. Friendly service and tasty sandwiches are what I can recommend so far.

Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy
is situated on the European side of the Bosphorus at
the mouth of the Golden Horn. Perhaps the city’s most
historically significant area, it’s currently one of
the most happening parts of town as well. Here street
vendors and alfresco fish restaurants line the banks
of the Horn where the views of major attractions
across the water rival Karakoy’s own key attractions,
