For those who are into vintage and second hand stuff this place is a beautiful escape. Had a peaceful visit, enjoyed my iced coffee in their backyard garden and wrote some postcards. The staff are very very friendly.
Loved the restroom as well. I was pleasantly surprised to see how authentic and clean it was.

A cosy cafe in the heart of one of the coolest parts of Istanbul. If you are looking for somewhere to chill, Velvet Cafe is the place, as it is tucked away in a quiet, pretty neighborhood, and has a cute little garden where you can hide from the bustle of the city. The decor inside is awesome - you can even select your own coffee cup from a bunch of antique ones - staff are friendly, and food is delicious. Especially try the halva!
