For authentic Turkish coffee, this place was excellent. They sat us down and we had nothing but the coffee and it was fantastic. If you aren't familiar, the coffee is very thick so be prepared for that. As coffee drinkers, we loved it.

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
