I was walking in the area and I needed lunch, I came across this place, and it has a nice outdoor seating in the shade, and a good food menu (Turkish). I had a good meal here, and they have wifi.

stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
