Loved the Turkish breakfast at this place. Delicious egg and cheese dishes, fresh fruit, bread and wonderful jams made by the waiter's Mom. It was small but they had a table that accommodated our group of 7. Very affordable as well.

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
