“For breakfast lovers”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

I frequently dream of this place, and I've been (half) jokingly saying to friends I need to go to Istanbul to have breakfast. Seriously ... the menemen, the gözleme, the cheeses and the kaymak with honey ... YUM.

“Excellent breakfast”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

Reviews of the food and service are accurate. I'm still dreaming of the honey and cream. Only a 10 minute walk from the T1 stop. Highly recommend

“Nice cafe with turkish breakfast composition”
Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

The van kahvalti cafe is a nice place to get a good start of the day with traditional food. For 20 Lira (6-7 Euros) you get a composition of bread, cheese, jam , honey, olives and lots of turkish specialities.

A good way to get to know the Turkish food for little money

“Excellent breakfast for an excellent price”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

We went there for breakfast and we were very surprised because of the line waiting in front of this place. In order to get in, we had to wait about twenty minutes but it was totally worth the wait. While waiting for getting a table, we got fresh Turkish tea which was really delicious.
In the restaurant we could choose between a lot of different Turkish things to eat and we decided to take a menu for two persons.
The food was really really delicious and we got a lot of different specialities. we got as much Turkish tea as we wanted and the waiters were very friendly.
The price was even the best, we only payed 40 Turkish lira for two persons.

I can truly recommend this place to all who want to enjoy a traditional Turkish breakfast in a very nice and friendly place.
Thumbs up!

“Great Breakfast Place”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

This place is heaven for breakfast. We had a one day stop in Istanbul and went to this place directly from the airport and loved it. The personnel are very friendly and the food is amazing. I will for sure go back to this place on my next trip to Istanbul
