We tried 2 different cookies and also the baklava. It was delicious. However the price of baklava is more expensive compared with other places. And as in other places they don't give you the check :)

This small café & cake shop is opposite Blue Mosque. We had 1 flat white and 1 late. They were both nice. 15TL for 2 of them. My son had rice pudding. It was very good as well.

Cigdem Pastanesi is an excellent escape for an absolutely amazing cup of coffee and some not so Turkish treats. Whilst there is a selection of Turkish sweet treats we appreciated that there were some western type cakes and pastries on offer. After a few days...More

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the
Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this
