An unwittingly retro 60′s style cafe Cigdem Pastanesi serves amazingly light and fluffy cheese böreks (how do they do it?!) and good coffee. Brilliant for breakkie and when you need to refuel after tourist-blockbustering in Sultanahmet or simply can’t face another enormous Turkish-sized dinner. Hot chocolate and traditional Turkish pastry treats are also divine.
