As our hotel's breakfast was lousy, we were searching for a place to have one nearby. And we definitely found it in Cigdem. Staff is very friendly and nice, service is fast and there is a big choice of various pastry. And also coffee, especially turkish, is great.

Went here twice and we were only in Istanbul for 2 days! The cakes in the window were too tempting. A lovely place to sit and rest from sight seeing.

Affordable pastry shop serving good Turkish coffee and chay. They are located right in the Sultan Ahmed district. The baklava is excellent and the milano cake is just amazing. You should give it a try if you have no problems with sugar. The service is excellent and the staff is very friendly.

The first thing that I can tell for this place is the fresh foods. Every week I bought 1pastry , every time they have fresh.. Not only pastry, chocalatte, sandwiches, foods etc.. everything.. And the owner of this place Ulash is always taking care of their guests even he was so busy.
Second thing is the location. The patiserria is located kust at the center of Old city and infront of the tram stop..
Third thing is the affordable prices.. Everyone can find something to eat at an affordamble price. :)
